The second team for 2013 spent the first two weeks of August with the children and staff of Living Love. The team brought gifts for all the children from the US sponsors, including much needed art supplies and biblical activity books, which the children eagerly dove into.
All the children seemed happy, well nourished and well cared for. They had such a wonderful time interacting with the members of the team.
The work team also put the wooden tops on the benches and tables that were welded together by the first team in spring and early summer, that we highlighted in our Spring-Summer Newsletter. Some of the tables and benches were immediately put to use, and the rest will be used in the new cottage when it is complete.
Due to the heavy rains the construction was delayed, so the team was disappointed that they weren’t able to help with the actual building of the cottage. Be assured that construction will begin as soon as possible, please pray for the safety of the workers, for wisdom and guidance during the construction process so that ultimately, we will be able to expand our capacity and help more needy children.
