“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
James 1:27

The Vision is now REALITY

Here is a photo of what we were able to get accomplished on this trip. It is not complete, but the amount of work that was done in the 6 days we had to work with is a true miracle.

The progress is that the exterior walls, roof, bathrooms (one boys and one girls restrooms with two toilets each and a sink for each), kitchen floor, and well are completed. The fence is mostly done, but we do not have a gate. The other items left to start/complete include electrical, plumbing, install 9 windows, install an exterior door, desks, chairs, book shelves, kitchen roof, kitchen shelves, beds, interior walls for bedrooms, interior walls for class rooms, ceiling.

Here is a slideshow of all the construction pictures!

Margibi County Senior Senator Clarice Jah came to look at the progress of the project. We were honored to give her a tour of the future facility and explain how the entire surrounding community will benefit in many ways.

Here is a picture of the construction crew.

Are you kidding me with this...that is absolutely freakin' amazing!!!!!! You and Jeremy must and and should be so proud of yourselves. You had a dream and you did it. I am so impressed. You built something from the ground up, literally!

I'm glad to see you cut in windows, I was a little worried in the beginning. And the huge tubs of bug killer was great.

So do tell, what now is in store for the building? Who will finish it up? When will children move in, etc...

Congratulations, you guys did it!!

Soooooo much work! I'm so thankful you showed all the details... You just don't think of all the sweat that was going to be involved, so much that we didn't even think about.

Thank you for going. Thank you for persevering. Thank you for all your hard work. Thank you for letting God use you. Thank you for showing you passion as you have. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
