Children doing chores after school...



On Friday after school I met up with these girls from the Chabin region. I asked how far they had to go for the water and they pointed down to the river. It looks to be well over a mile with a very steep grade. They collected the wood along the way to make a fire to cook supper. Did you notice the girl on the right is not wearing shoes. The rocks here a sharp and lots of thorns on the trails. We have a huge need for shoes for the children.
The team left for home this morning. They were such a huge blessing to our staff and all the children.
I have staff meetings today and a funeral this afternoon. We will be going to some of our schools on Monday to take pictures of children that are needing sponsors. Tuesday before I fly out of PAP we will be going to our Diquinni school and City Solie school. We have to raise $1,020. for the books needed in City Solie before we can open the school. We are in the same situation in 4 of our other schools. Thank you to all that have helped make this labor of love possible......
