This past week we broke ground for the construction of a wall around the school property. This is a rather massive project in that we have six acres of land to close in.
We will go slowly but for starters we have a general contractor and 4 young men working on digging the foundation. The composition of our land is almost solid rock. Not good land for farming but excellent foundation for school buildings and a wall. The work is slow and hard because it will be completely done by hand, we are very thankful for this land that the Lord has given to us.
In late October we have a team of men coming to visit the orphanage and to work on putting up the wall. Our team of local workers are digging the trench, will lay the foundation of iron reinforced concrete, make the bricks on site, and then the visiting team will start putting the wall up. The wall will be built in two meter sections divided by reinforced concrete support posts.
A note to those who have contributed towards this project: Putting up a wall is not a particularly glamorous project to give to but it is something that is very needed here to protect what the Lord has given to us. Thank you so much! I stand amazed at the goodness of our God and at the generosity of his people! May the Lord richly bless you!
