It is truly amazing to think that in the last month alone God brought in the funds to build the clinic! We will still be lacking funds to outfit the clinic with all the things needed, roughly $9,000 but we are sure God will provide. Thanks so much for your support of this project.

The Children's Home is running at full steam. The school break at the end of the year is a long one (2 months!) and the kids are doing great.

Our purpose is very clear as laid out in Scripture: To GO, to MAKE DISCIPLES, and to BAPTIZE them. We are here to preach, teach and make disciples. We are not here to build stone buildings, install water systems or any other external thing. However, because of our love for our neighbors and to show them the love of Christ we do these things. We want their children to have a good education, we want them to have clean drinking water and good health services. We see these "projects" as another opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus. Each project we do is carefully considered as how it will better help us do that. As a missionary our primary objective is seeing people believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and then to grow in Him through His word.
Its all about Jesus, without Him all else seems meaningless.
