Good morning from the Village!!!

This is my first email from the land!!!! We got here last night after picking up the kids from the Safe House! They of course sang the entire 2 hour drive. =)

It was so amazing as we drove up last night to the land... the living compound, which is made up of 6 very large huts had a fire built in the middle of it.

We spent the evening sitting around the fire, the children danced and sang and ended with an angel voice choir of worship songs and prayers! Just a glimpse of what Heaven will be like.

We all went to bed in our huts! It was cool and we were lulled to sleep by the sound of frogs and crickets!

This morning the children were up early, sweeping the dirt area in the middle of the compound, catching chickens and taking off the feathers. (I guess we are having chicken for dinner) some of the kids were washing dishes, others played soccor. It was a busy morning for them... and it was fun to watch "normal village life".

Tracy & Lindsay removed the little rocks from the rice (I didn't know rice had rocks). (I guess we are having rice for dinner too).

The foundation for the 1st home is completely poured... we took the children to see it, and they ran from area to area... "this is my room". The school foundation is 1/2 way poured and should be completed in 3-4 days.

As we sat last night around the fire, we talked about how this was only a "dream" 2 years ago... and now God is making it into a "reality"... how surreal it is to be here, with friends, my niece, Mike, Rose.... What more could I want!!!!

God is good!
