We were grateful for the break in weather so that we could continue work on the house. The shipment of gravel arrived and we were able to mix cement to finish pouring the floors in the house. We were also able to start running the electrical as well.
Megan continued work in the clinic organizing medicine in the pharmacy. Emily and Sam led games with the CDI kids. And, Doug finished his counseling training with the pastors. We all gathered late afternoon to load up the truck to deliver food packages to families in the surrounding community. It was a huge blessing to meet many of the families and share a little love with them. It is always wonderful to hear how much they appreciate Iglesia Gran Comision and how grateful they are to be a part of a great church family. A day we won’t soon forget.
Tomorrow will be a full day as we finish up our projects and present the house to the family. The house will be given to Marcia. She is widowed and has two children; an 8 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. Her husband left her for another woman and he was shot after getting involved with a gang. She and her children have all been living in one small bedroom in her father’s home which is next door to where we are building her house. She and all her children will each have their own bedrooms in her new house.
We look forward to sharing pictures of the dedication
