Perhaps you find yourself in a season of life when things are coming at you from every direction, and it's difficult to see what's ahead. In the midst of the millions of people in our world being afflicted by starvation, the spread of diseases and the increase of natural disasters, there is one thing that absolutely remains certain: those who are secure in the Lord are in amazing hands.
As you all know, we live in a poor area outside of town where people struggle for every necessity of life. The rains have washed away many mud huts; finding food and just the worry of surviving a day at a time is tragic for Edwin and Precious to witness. Thanks to your donations we have been able to start building a church for us and 500 people in our community and we are very grateful for your help!
The latest message to the nation was about restrictions regarding COVID. The schools will remain closed operating under the previous instructions. We had to purchases cell phones for the older children and they have mastered this working on a special App until the schools reopen again. The little ones are working in the new grass hut by using a projector and screen with lessons prepared by our teachers .
We've also been able to start some other projects that we'd like to share with you, so instead of pictures of the children this time, we'll show you what's happening with the construction on the three compounds.
This will be the church we waited so long for. Because of heavy rains and COVID shots, it's been a slow process. This building will accommodate 500 people when it's completed and from what we're hearing, we needed to build one for 1,000 people. Everyone wants to attend. Our contractor has gone to the north again to find the same wood we used on the grass hut to build the pews and the roof on the church, so believe me, they are working hard to make it a solid and long-lasting structure.
Thank you everyone for following our amazing story of how God took an old lady and a loaf of banana bread to start a project such as this. Our Home of Angels has become a home full of love and hope for these children and we could not have done it without your prayers and support.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you
