During the week of January 10-14, we welcomed our first two teams of the year! Grace Community Chapel from New Brunswick, NJ and Grace Community Church from Clarksville, TN. Both teams worked side-by-side doing various construction jobs at the Project. We were so blessed to have thirty-four volunteers working all week. Seven from the New Jersey team and twenty-seven from the Tennessee team. The Tennessee team built two fences, cut down a rather large tree, did a "little" landscaping at the guard's house (see below), sanded and painted beds from the Children's Home, painted an office in the Multi-Purpose Building, painted Candace's laundry room, dug the hole for a septic tank, mowed and weed-whacked the grass, and pulled lots and lots of nails.
These great folks also brought bicycles to two of our missionaries, Jason and Kerby Harpst. These bikes were such a blessing to them as this is their only form of transportation, in addition to walking!
