It has been a great week here at MOH. The work that is going on here is happening at a God speed and I was glad to here that we hired a new Haitian engineer to lead the construction projects. He is a nice young man named Fils-aimé. I am looking forward to working with him.
The Housing project in LeVeque is going strong. 138 started and close to 100 finished, except the roofs. We have been waiting to get a container out of port with our roofing material and it finally arrived early this week. Time for some roofing!!!!!
The Hospital is getting painted and the windows were ordered this week. May will be a big push to get the paint and floor finished. We finished 6 homes in local villages this week and teams will be painting them in the weeks to come.
MOH Cribs has been so much fun. We are finding random people from the church and some that are complete strangers and painting their houses for them. A common response when we ask if we can paint their house is, why or what do you want in return. When we say we want nothing but that The Church of Hope just wants to be a blessing to them and the community, the look on their faces is priceless. Random acts of kindness opens doors for the love of Christ every time. We will start to plant trees and do minor repairs soon also.
The big push for the last couple of weeks and for the next few is to complete the first floor of the new guest house. It needs to be completed by May 14th!!!! Teams painted 4 of the 6 rooms on the 1st floor this week and the front porch. The electric, plumbing and septic work began also. Oh yeah, the air conditioning went in too!!! NOT!!! Well it has been windy this week. It is going to be a great place for teams to stay and unwind at the end of a long day.
We are beginning the footings for our new 37,000 square foot warehouse this coming week and continuing to push hard to get the guest house ready. The new school rooms in Bercy are ready to be roofed and painted. September will bring some happy kids as the hope of an education becomes a reality. Very exciting!!!
As you can see things are moving fast and there are more things to start soon….
Thanks to all of you who support MOH. Your faithfulness to your part of God’s call to MOH is truly transforming a country….. WE are so blessed to be a part of God’s work here in Haiti….
