God's peace to you as you keep up on the latest with this ministry.
I am actively pursuing the final details of leading a mission team of nine individuals to La Maison des Agneaux de Dieu Orphilinat (MADO) beginning June 19th. One member (Jeremy ) went over June 11th with Ben (our NEHLM Liaison) to pursue some metal working. Jeremy is a machinist by trade yet capable in many trades. We ask for your prayers for travel, health, and that the Word of the Lord may continue to grow in this ministry.
The worship area that has been used for a decade got the roof repaired. This worship area served as a multipurpose room throughout the week and leaked badly. NEHLM was please to have some undesignated funds to send them to allow them to use this facility even when it rains. FYI, this structure is overflowing for Sunday Worship and VBS. Rev. Paul and his church are pursuing a church building on land next to the school, Lord willing.
When Rev. Paul and I talked, we finalized some plans on travel for this team of nine and all our supplies. I was delighted to hear that he was able to obtain cement and iron for our work project. He commented, "The rain has stopped, but I don't know how it will be when you are here." As long as it is not consistent rain, we will be pleased. A little rain keeps the dust and heat down.
Yesterday, several board members met with Kathy, a local French speaker and former mission team member. She helped translate applications of intent from the upper grade orphans. It was so very encouraging to hear words from each orphan about their goals and application of God's Word in their life. It is a blessing to see the dedication of these students and Rev. Paul and Clynie to the education and well-being of the children.
