Today our excavation team enjoyed gifts of cokes and malts, but they had a setback when at about noon, the bulldozer broke down. Please join us in prayer that the parts required arrive tonight so that tomorrow morning it can be up and running once again.
Our construction team is doing extremely well! Please pray that the preparation for the latrine is completed quickly so that they can begin work there, too.
Today we teachers came to understand why some children less than two years old are showing up in the JK/SK class! Many of the parents leave early for their farms and leave the small children in the care of older siblings. It’s no wonder their teacher Frank did not know all of their names, as they normally gather and sleep in the back of the classroom while he teaches the students! We also learned that the reason some in the Gr. 6 class seem extremely advanced in comparison to others: it is at least their second time in the grade because they don’t have family to live with in the larger villages or cities where the junior high schools are.
At this point, all team members have joined us on site each day and the weather has been quite comfortable. Please continue to pray for health as some of the team are feeling a little unwell — they are getting the full Ghanaian experience!
Thank you all!
