Today, as usual, we got up about 6 a.m. and everybody got their coffee and did their personal devotion, and then we had the team devotion. Afterward, we all started working on different projects. I started by cleaning my office and bedroom. I have about 10 trunks in my room, and every so often I have to go through them and label all my boxes so I know what I actually have. The rest of the guys started working on putting on the ceiling to my office and bedroom. They finished by lunchtime, and it looks great. What is really nice is that now we have storage area on top so we can get all our tools, medicines and other things out of the way. This is something that I have really wanted to do, but never had time. That is what is so good about having a work team, but I never want to forget to disciple the people here every time we come, whether it is adults or children. I see so many ministries get so involved in building that they forget what is really important, and that is spreading the Good News of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

After lunch, the guys started work on little projects like working on wobbly ceiling fans, replacing light bulbs, and bracing the tables. These guys never stopped. As I said yesterday, we have exceeded my expectations by far.

Tomorrow we will get up at 4:30 a.m. and I will take Bill, Joe and Dominique to the airport–their plane leaves at 8:40. After that, George will follow me to Dottie’s house, where I will leave the Ford, and then George will take me back to the airport and I’ll wait till 2 p.m. to catch my flight out.

Thank you again for all your prayers. God is so, so good. May God continue to bless you and your families, as I know He will.
