Beds, Books n Bouncing

Finally, the girls are sleeping in beds. Up till now they have all been sleeping on the floor. The six bed bunkbed princes’ castle is complete and in use, needs just little more paint and shudders installed. Plus the young boys bedroom/jungle is finished painted and lit. Complete with a rope ladder to the ceiling hideout with periscope and a swing in the middle of the room. For the first time in their lives, every child has a bed of their own.

Yesterday began the process of putting them all in school. Registering them produced a huge list of needs. Example; Having to have made at least 2 uniforms for each of them, thats 60 yards of material to start, 20 pairs of shoes (dress/ athletic) alone are near $400. We have not even priced all the books yet….and it all must be done in 2 weeks. Prayerfully in the future we will have them in our school, but we need a church building first.
We also took the youth from the church out to the river for time riding the go-cart. None knew what it was till we got there, but all enjoyed the adventure and want to do it again.
