    Calvin and I continue to pray for you. We visited GR Christian and The Potter’s House today. Went to the Potter’s House varsity boys basketball game last night. Lots of love from home. Miss you.

    Hey everyone this is amazing thanks A that’s big stuff being some any where your feet have not. Thank you Jody I truely am touched and enjoying time with your huband, thank the childern for me.

    Honey I only have one honey thank you for praying I miss you much. So did Calvin enjoy the game, what do you think about the possibilities. I have taken all my pictures.

    The housing is going very well the people are the most content, i really don’t have words to discribe what I experience when i see them and serve them. We did something new as it relates to the structure we hope will be a blessing. Getting to the sites is really rough but God and Henry make all things possible.

    Don- The pictures reveal that you are a natural fit there. I cant wait to hear how those people touched your heart. Sue and I thought about you the night you were leaving and that you probably didn’t get
    much of any sleep.

    I know you are busy doing God’s work, we will talk soon.

    Hi Uncle Don!

    Hope your work is going well. Keep your thumbs out of the way of the hammer. Ian wants pictures of EVERYTHING! Hope you are feeling fine.
    Ian says : “Don’t buy too many souvenirs or it will cost so much to send your luggage back you won’t be able to get back home!”
    Be safe and be blessed!

    Hey Don!

    No termites eating those studs, eh? The porch extensions are a great idea! Peace, wherever your feet touch the ground. Spread it around.

    Hey Uncle Don!

    If you have a good sized book (like your Bible) Maybe you could press some plants/leaves inside the pages for me! Thanks.

    Hello everyone , We have completed what human hands can do. Like the prophet that built the altar when his work was done, God showed up bigtime. Every family accepted the gift, the eternal one. I have been apart of my first new birth. Dan, our host, guide, and obedient founder of this out post, said that this is not the normal. I have much to say but I am so slow on this computer that others need to use but I got to give a shout out to Cali, Hi Yachiyl.

    Now that you’re done with the manual labor, I realize I forgot to pack your work gloves. Suspect you managed just fine without them. 🙂
    Missing you
    Calvin says hi, love you, and bless all.

    I have seen the glory of the Lord in the mountains His majesty displayed over head (His creation) while He glorified Him self on earth. The work we are doing is good because we are building and serving the people with Him as Dan says, but the work that God Him self is doing is great and blows me away. There truly is no one like our God. Feel free to check some of the other team member for more details and specifics as it relates to days activities. There is some much God is openning my eyes, heart, mind, and spirit to I just can’t assemulate with out a time. Time which i hear we might have in Dallas seven hours. Now to add to all this God as uncovered new family member wonderful brothers and sister in Iowa, a mans true riches are in relationships and I and RICH with family. I have grown much closer to my Michigan brothers and sister, learned so much more about the depth of there relationships with God. We go out again today for meds and I can’t wait to see the Father.

    Don, I’m sure it has been a long week and your guys are exhausted, but make sure to enjoy the last of the time you have there! You can rest when you get home (you can tell me mom I said so)!!
