Greetings on the journey!

It is our last 24 hours before we head stateside! It has been a busy time of being in touch with ministry coworkers and making our departure visits.


We have seen the completion of the well with the last culverts (cement casings) put in place and the well hand pump installed.  An important and necessary step as we continue to move forward in the completion of the Gathering Center.  The next phase (getting walls up and under roof including the second story) is partially funded ($15,000 of the $50,000 needed has been given). We continue to pray for those who will unite with this purpose. 
The well pump is in place and being used at Fair Shake Village.  We are ready to put up the walls and put on the roof when funding is in place.

We were blessed to be able to spend a few hours with Mary Beh, her assistant director, Esther P. Smith and the children at MODUC.  There are over 40 youngsters there. It is always a blessing to see them, see how they've grown, hear them sing and listen to Mary tell and retell their stories (we forget).  Continue in prayer for this work as children's lives are changed through the love and support received in home.
Here Carolyn shares a picture with Esther Smith, assistant director, while Mary Beh and Wada look on in the background. Wada was abandoned at a parking station when Mary received him.  At that time he could not walk.  Although he still is not able to talk he is walking with the best of them and is Mary's sidekick. A real blessing!

Our basic need to keep healthy, reconnect with friends and see family will keep us focused in these months stateside.  We would love to make time to visit with you and share what we see God doing here.  Please be in touch ( or call 6362092445 so we can begin to plan.  Within this very general framework we will be in these areas at these times:
Texas area                 mid-May to early June
Utah area                   July to early August
Florida area                last of August to early September
Midwest area             October to November
ICOM Peoria, IL         November 16th through 19th
Texas area                 December

And for those of you who wonder if we have snakes here, below is a picture taken by a friend of ours several months ago in Sinoe county.

You are a blessing to us. Thank you for sharing His love!
Clearing an area for a future palm plantation uncovered this large snake (top) and her eggs (bottom). Both were enjoyed.
