Blood's Visit

One of my fantastic four buddies came back to visit me, along with some of his buddies from Valpo, and Dr. Blood's group. They were here for about a week, and were so busy during that week that I didn't really get to take any pics of them. One night we were able to sneak them away to town so we could teach them how to do the Limbo- but other than that they were working.
Using the hood of one of our old cars, they were able to make a basketball hoop, which has now become very popular amongst our boys. I'll be sure to get a picture of that up on the blog soon.

Thanks for visiting Daniel- it was great seeing you again, and meeting your friends. Come back soon. Keep in touch. and keep Limbo-ing!

Jean Wil

It has been a little over two months since Jean Wil has passed. I painted his tomb the colors of Espwa- green and white. The mango tree next to his tomb is bearing fruit now, and provides him with shade. Father Marc's future bedroom window has a nice view of Jean Wil. Please remember him, as well as the other children who have left us too soon because of the poor situation in which they live.

Electrifying the Village!

After a very generous donation from Bernie and his crew, we are now able to bring electricity down to our children's village. Here are some pics of the older boys working on getting us electrified!

Makentoche digging a hole for the piping.
Wilson and Fritzner suppling the materials.
Fritzner laying out the PVC pipes.
Maurice, our head electrician working with the boys on stringing the wires through the pipes.

A look at the finished product! Can't wait till it's all done- probably by the end of next week there will be light!

My Apologies

I need to start out by apologizing. I am looking at my blog, and it has been almost a month since I have updated my blog. It has not been intentional, I promise. With my new responsibilities and the Internet refusing to upload my pictures, I have really fallen behind.

Father Marc has been a lot better about his blog- I hope you are checking his.

I am in the process of uploading pictures right now, so as soon as the Internet gods allow it- you will get to see what I've been up to!

Thanks for your patience!
