It is Saturday October 12th in La Pintana Chile and our Team along with the House of Hope girls and volunteers are busy working / constructing our new multi-purpose building. The Lord has provided a beautiful day and we are praising His name and giving Him all of the glory for the work being completed.
Our workers are very busy. Paul, Lissette, Berta and several of our wonderful volunteers are putting on the building wrap in preparation for the siding. Lee, Jose and the beautiful Claudia [ Daniels sister-in-law ] are putting in the installation. Jose [ the son ] has completed the rough plumbing and is waiting for the inspector to arrive. Bob, Dick, Chip and Hannah are continuing to install our electrical system. Paul and Charlie are working on the installation of our windows. Kerry [ El Jefe ] is doing an absolutely wonderful job in drinking coffee and overseeing the work. It is a difficult job but someone has to do it !
And now for the most important job, preparing lunch. Today, Claudia [ the other beautiful young women ], Damy, Nicole, Ivette, Berta, Eben, Lily and Sherrel were amazing ! The food was great ! On time and lots of it. Thank you ladies You are very special !
We have had an awesome week. Every day we start our day with a great breakfast and then Lissette ushers us into worship with several beautiful songs. We then have a challenge from the word as we are studying the book “ Radical “ Our leaders have done their homework well and have encouraged us to become radical for Jesus. We then close with a wonderful time in prayer.
This week we have been to a concert at the local elementary school that we support. We were also there one day to visit several of the classes while in secession and had a great time of playing with the kids.
We also visited a local orphanage and played with the kids and shared hot dogs with then and the staff.
If you love children [ and our young House of Hope women ] and we do, you would love to be here.
We thank Daniel and Cecelia for being fantastic host. We thank you, our family and friends for your support in prayer and finances. And for the families of our team members, thank you for allowing them to come. God bless all of you !
Ps We give a special shout out to Pablo [ better known as Diane’s fiancé ] for coming out and working with us. It is great to have him as a part of us.
