Dear Praying Friends,
Thank you for your prayers, encouraging emails or texts, and unimaginable generous financial support. Thank you for allowing you and your family to be used by God to be launched into His missions in Liberia.
On March 24th we departed from Indianapolis, and arrived safely with all of our stuff in Monrovia on March 25. We spend four days in Monrovia and took care our car’s registration and insurance.
On Friday, March 29, Yah and I arrived in Gompa, and have settled in very well. Our Liberian team and many friends were already awaiting us at our house to welcome us home. They brought food and told stories about the work, the challenges, and the fun they have had. They told stories about their families and community politics. We hugged, laughed, talked and had fun until midnight. It is just an incredible blessing from the Lord to have people love us.
The next day, we had a brief meeting with our staff and construction team, reviewed the work and jumped right in. As always, this time of the year, the scourging heat is relentless, but our team is unstoppable.
From April 1 through the 15, we have worked extremely hard and achieved the following: the foundation preparation is nearly ready, and we expect that to be finished by Wednesday this week.
Also this week, we plan to hire 38 workers: 8 skillful concrete masons and 30 helpers for the casting the foundation, which is expected to be completed in ten days.
Thank you for your prayer and generous financial support. Your current financial gifts will allow us to purchase 3,000 bags of cement (50 kg each bag). This means, we are only 1,000 bags short of reaching our goal of the 4,000 bags of cement estimated by the engineer to complete the entire casting of the 16,900 square foot foundation. We are now awaiting the arrival of cement from Monrovia by trucks in order to get the casting done. Thank YOU!
Yah and I and our team are praying for you and your family as you celebrate and worship our Lord and Savior this Easter weekend!
