Greetings to you from all of us here at the Home. We are happy to report to you that we have a new boy in the Home. His name is Efriem and he is 7 years old. He was brought to us by DIF, who took him from his grandmother. He has a very sad background. The grandmother would put him in a hole in the ground that was a foundation basement for a new house. It was deep enough that he could not get out without a ladder. Sometimes she would put him in it and go to town all day. Many times he even had to sleep there at night. The neighbors reported her and DIF came and picked the boy up. He is adjusting very well to his new home and is enjoying his first year in school.
All of our kids are now back in school. We have 13 kids in 5 different schools. We have 3 in Kindergarten, 2 in Primary, 3 in a slow learners Primary, 4 in Secondaria, 1 in open University. We still have Eliazar at home. We have a time with taking them and picking them up. Our gas bill will be high this year for sure.
On Saturday, Sept. 3, we were able to install all the trusses and steel supports for the roof of the Church. 5 of us worked from 7 AM till 5 PM. All of us were praying for a not to hot of a day. The night before it rained all night but stopped by 4 in the morning. It turned out to be a cloudy day with no sun or wind. We had rented a 25 ton crane to pick up the 6 trusses that weighed about 1000 Lbs. If you want to see more pictures of the work go to our web page www.mcch.info under Church in Tlacote. The roof is now ready for the panels to be installed.
We thank you for all your prayers and financial support you have given to the Home.
