Well I am really behind so get ready… this is going to be a long one! Our internet has been on again/off again for the last few weeks which makes it a little difficult to get the blog updated! (My apologies for the inconsistencies in font size and type, I have tried repeatedly to fix it but “blogger” has decided to do everything in its power to drive me crazy today and just won’t change it!)
First, the promised pictures from the Lake Tomahawk Team!
The majority of the team put on an English Camp for our primary school students. It was wonderful to watch the kids learning English and having lots of fun while also learning Biblical truths.
Second, I want to FINALLY officially introduce you to our two “new” team members here on the Plateau!
In addition to the bookkeeping, Krischelle is also teaching a Bible Study in the church, helping me with the girls group (more on that coming soon), tending her garden, working with the Church Chorale, and a million other helpful things.
After meeting up with Sam again in Pennsylvania this past summer and talking through the possibilities, it finally worked out for him to come! He is currently learning the ropes and will soon be taking over the bulk of the day to day maintenance and development projects from Manis. He is a huge help and we are so grateful to have him here.
Thanks to Sam, Lemuel also, for the first time, has literature in German! Sam went into Port-au-Prince this past week to visit the German Embassy and some other offices to look into finding assistance for the Food-for-Work program we hope to start in the New Year. He felt it would be awkward for him, as a German, to take English literature to the German Embassy so he translated the brochure!
