“Remember, you may choose your sin, but you cannot choose the consequences.” Jenny Sanford
With the help of Mission Partner Brian Schaefer and his crew, we started renovating the kitchen and laundry area plumbing at Casa Hogar today. The word renovation is actually a misnomer because the home does not currently have a plumbing system in the kitchen and laundry area (unless you call plastic buckets a plumbing system). The improvements will greatly enhance the quality of life for our children. The hole we are currently digging is 6 feet wide, 5 feet deep and 12 feet long. Six hours of hard labor by 3.5 men got us down 18 inches. In our excavation activity, we have uncovered everything under the sun with the possible exception of Jimmy Hoffa. Tomorrow is a new day. We will post pictures on the website upon completion.

The Doctor reported that Marti Mason’s foot is really broken and now she is sporting a cast for the next four to six weeks. Marti, we were very sorry to get that news. We would also like to report that TJ is now home and resting comfortably after surgery and we hope to see him back in church soon. Yes, he has his cell phone with him.
