I wanted to give just a quick update this morning because of what may be a misunderstanding. I mentioned in my last update that Tom was needing money to buy food for the team. That was Tom’s humor, a statement that was made only to me. I apologize if that may have caused any kind of panic back home. The truth is we are eating in abundance and feeding some of our Chilean friends and many of the girls as well.
There is a greater problem with finances this year because of the unusual number of disasters world wide, but the organization of Vision for Chile coupled with the Alliance Church has done such a great job in managing all the preparations that we have not felt the shortage of money in any way. At least not yet… More importantly, we are learning to trust wholly and completely on the Lord not only to provide for us but to direct our path. If we don’t have enough wood to finish the roof then we will gather upon the foundation built thus far and lift our hands toward the heavens in awe and worship to our Lord giving Him praise and glory for His amazing grace alone.
Speaking of the roof, the trusses are all made and half of them are already up and it’s only 10:00 in the morning. I expect the roof may be finished by tomorrow but that’s not confirmed. More materials have been ordered. Pray that they will arrive in a timely manner.
It feels good to see the sun shining. There’s not a cloud in the sky. People are loading on the sunscreen. I may even put some on myself (I said that for my wife’s sake). Ok, I will put some on!
After breakfast, Scott led us in a time of worship and Clark led the devotion. We know the adoption process is very difficult and I don’t have any more news on that. Clark closed his devotion with this statement; “We can adopt this ministry and we can adopt these girls in our hearts.”
Thanks again for your continued prayers. Pray especially for our physical health and protection from injuries. There have been complaints of soreness and strains. There are many working in high places (the roof). We have only just begun!
Love from the Chile Team
