When church was over, we met with the pastor and church leaders. They shared with us the status of their church . . . they have 186 children in Sunday school but they have no teaching materials. They rent this space and as we saw, it is pretty dilapidated. Despite the situation, the church members are so joyful!
After this meeting, we walked back to the Home and had lunch. Once lunch was finished, we all loaded up in the van and headed to the new site of the Widows and Orphans Home. They are busy building a new, bigger facility. The new place is 15 minutes away from the current location. The new site has a nice bit of land but there is a drainage problem . . . during the rainy season, which is 15 June – 15 Sept, the stream that runs through the back yard overflows, and it could overflow into the new house! In order to fix this problem, the Home needs 40,000 US Dollars to build a retaining wall. As you can imagine, this is an impossible amount of money for Tezera but she has faith that God will send the money somehow.
Life is too short and the planet is too big to stay in one place too long!
