Cleaning, painting and a big fire


A 31 person work team came to Shell to pour themselves into the entire town. Everyone was from Concordia College in Minnesota.

The young people worked at Casa de Fe (a local orphanage), the Nate Saint School, shadowed doctors in the hospital, watched surgeries, and attacked the laundry room.

The laundry room was definitely in need of some work. As you can see in one of the pictures, the paint did not really need to be scraped off the ceiling - it was falling off.

The rest of the room was worn out and in need of restoration. The ladies removed everything, cleaned, washed, scraped, primed and painted the ceiling, walls and all the cabinets. It was a huge job and the paint fume smell was intense - but we got it done.

I would like the thank the people who rotated through the project to complete it. I do not know where we would be without your help.

Thank you for being used by God in this way, it was a real pleasure to work with you and get to hear so many of your stories. May God bless your studies and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Other news: Our boys, along with the neighbor boys are in the process of building a large "fort" in the jungle and needed nails and other materials for their project. To help raise money for the fort, they all wanted jobs, so we worked in the maintenance area, cleaning. We picked up all scrap wood and piled it into a two large piles and had a huge fire. Everyone had a good time. The shop got clean, everyone smelled like smoke, the boys got paid in "nails" and scrap wood (as well as a little money) and believe it or not - it did not rain all day.

I would also like to thank our neighborhood kids (about 6) who all pitched in and helped.
