Grateful for a reminder of God's Promises.
A team of 8 men from Austin and 2 other couples arrived just in time to bring some strong hands and encouragement our way. God knew exactly what we would need and He provided. This amazing team of men and women arrived on Saturday, the day after the flood. They accomplished so much in a short amount of time. With their help, we were able to clean the cafeteria and first floor classrooms, repair a section of the cinderblock wall that the force of the water had caused to give way , shoveled over 3-4 truckloads of rock, dirt, and gravel to enable the road leading up to the school to be passable, and added laughter to our home. The students were able to attend class for 2 hours on Thursday and were able to eat breakfast, take their vitamins, brush their teeth, go to chapel, and receive a sack lunch to take home. Monday, November 19, was their first full day back to school. We still have so much to do before the school is back and functioning properly, but we are on the road to recovery. Please keep us and this community in your prayers.
