Jerry has been helping build a playground for the children. This is a photo of the playground in progress.
We also are still in the planning stages of trying to start a feeding program in a slum about 15 minutes away. We have had some ups and downs but we would really like to help them. If you want to donate to that please contact us and we will make sure every penny goes directly to that. When we went to the slum the village elder brought 60 families that were very needy, some having HIV, some being all orphans being raised by their oldest sibling. Right now we are thinking we can only provide for 10 families if that.
Thank you for reading and keeping up with us! We appreciate all the prayers and encouragement ! If you could pray for Jerry and I now we both have been having colds/breathing problems ! Thank you !

Yesterday we got to go see a friend Alex who works here at the home as a night guard, and is Peters brother, at the hospital where his wife just had a baby. This was their fourth ! They named her Favor. The biggest culture shock is that she had the baby at 11:30 and was being discharged to go home at 3:30 ! They just had to pay their bill and then they were going home ! When we told them most women in America usually stay a couple of nights they laughed and joked that his wife still had to get home to do the laundry !
We got the opportunity to go visit a slum that is located about 15 minutes away from us a few weeks ago. After talking to many of the women there they said that their greatest needs are food, jobs, and education for their children. We are hoping to begin a feeding program there and also provide ways for them to be able to grow their own food in the future. Also to start classes for them to learn skills to be able to make money for their families. We hope to go visit some programs that have been successful in nearby towns to get ideas and see how they have been able to sustain what they are doing. Hopefully by our next newsletter we will have some information to share with you and get this program going soon ! Thanks for all of the prayers and support ! We will try and update again soon !
