|The before picture I shared some time ago. Note the collapsing door, the shuttered up windows, the rough flooring and the ceiling.|
|Work started with removing the door and building a wall. We hired a mason who is a brother in Christ to help us.|
|The old ceiling had to be torn off and a new ceiling framed up.|
|Some of the work we did ourselves, like touching up some painting. I'm not a terrific handyman, but it was fun to do.|
|Our kids are always happy to help out with the ministry! Hannah helped me clean up paint drippings from paining.|
|"Over here, no... over there... well maybe not..." George and I helped set up the furniture, arranging and rearranging it to get the best use and look out of our classroom.|
|We already have 7 students (including our kids) lined up for the coming school year. We are really excited to be able to start teaching and transforming lives!|
1- Getting chairs. We'd like to get 8 matching, good quality chairs. They are about $30 a piece.
2- A white board. We've already gotten funds for this, and hope to get one in the next week or two when I go to Douala.
3- A computer and computer desk. This has also been funded, and I hope to get one next time I go to Douala, as the prices there are better!
4- A photocopier. This has been partially funded, but we are still saving up, as they are very expensive here (about $1500... we are 1/3rd of the way there).
We plan to start full-time classes in September! Thanks for all the prayers and support, and we will keep you posted with updates!
