Well today we were suprised by rain. This is supposed to be the “Summer” season, when we get very little rain, but around noon it started to rain, and 10 hours later, it is still going. Because of the rain we were able to enjoy some other suprises as well. As school let out across the street from our house, Ruby and Roxana came by to say hi and pick up a bag of food. We were able to spend some time with them, and because we weren’t able to work at the property, we invited them all over for dinner. It was a great time having them meet so many of my relatives. Malvin did a few traditional Native American dances, and the girls loved it.
Before it started raining at noon, we were able to finish the back wall of the house. In the pictures above you see Harold and Ralph wrapping up the back wall of the house. The next picture is my dad (Paul Furrow) and my cousin (Jerry Wayne Hawks) working on some of the scaffolding we are making to help the block-layers. The final picture is Josh Cumming helping everyone get into the truck for our trip up to the job site.
I want to share a very personal thought with you and ask for your prayer. Tonight as we dropped off the girls at their house, I was struck by the fact that these six little girls are going back to spend the night all by themselves. It was cold (for the tropics) and raining, and they didn’t have anyone to protect them or take care of them. Please pray that God helps us to provide a place for them to be safe and secure and loved.
