Phew, everybody!  I do apologize for the delay in getting a blog post up these days.  For one thing, the internet (need I say more?).  For another, there’s been a lot going on as we close another school/work year. So let me catch you up on what’s been going on as we wrap up:…

  Last week, we received old and new friends from Emmanuel Baptist in Exeter, Ontario.  The church raised funds towards two roofs: one for the kindergarten and one for a local family’s home. The Emmanuel team constructed the roof on the family home….coincidentally, this family’s last name is also Emmanuel!     The team set…

That is often how we feel when trying to communicate realities on the Plateau.     The thorns, for example…we’re…

Many of you are familiar with Lemuel’s food- or cash-for-work initiatives.  These short-term projects enable people on the Plateau to earn an income for their families while at the same time investing in the development and future of their own community. The importance of food/cash-for-work is far bigger than a road built or a rain-water catchment hole…

Dear Friends, It has been a long time since most of you have heard from us.  Our apologies!!!   About three months ago our internet crashed.  We had just begun working on setting up a better system for communication – then the internet died and everything went on hold.  So far we have not been able…
