Starting the foundation for the staff housing.
We received a donation specifically for the new staff housing.
Our goal is to get the foundation built & the adobe bricks made,
so we can begin construction after the rainy season!

We love you "Papi" Wayne!!!

This panoramic shot allows you to see the stable (far left), the Beard's home (under construction),

Beautiful landscape!!! God's provision is amazing!

Girl's Bible study worship in Diana's home!
Diana had to watch her home, so we switched location for a week!

We continue to read through various New Testament passages twice a week.

A mixture of mud, water & pine needles are placed in the wooden mold to make the bricks.

Ismael, Cesar, Nexser and Marvin.

The walls have begun to be stuccoed - a concrete "coating" to cover/protect the adobe bricks.

Roof Ready!!!
