I recently sent out the monthly email. In case you missed it here it is:
You know how you come to the end of a month and sometimes it’s like; “Wow. That month flew by so fast. Where did the days go?” and other times it’s like; “My god that month was so long. I can’t believe I made it to the end of it.” My feelings for April are the latter sentiment.
April was too busy of a month. Usually when school is out we have time to chill and just recoup, but this past month has been a ‘go, go, go’ kind of month.
The nursery school buildings are finished, or at least they have walls and roofs. Right now the fundi (craftsman) is plastering the walls, installing doors and windows, and will soon finish the floors. After that we have to finish up the electricity hook up, work on some plumbing, finish the playground/community park, and do all the decorating.
Speaking of school, the children will be heading back in a week. Everyone is doing o.k. in school and hopefully will continue on that tract. One of our goals with the orphan-care project is to create a space where the children have a chance to not only attend school, but to do as well as they can. We believe this will go a long way towards giving them a hope in their futures.
We pray that your May goes better than our April did, and we hope ours does as well.
Johnny and Kate Brooks
