We are still praising the Lord for Bo and 3 young men who were baptised in May while our team was here from Texas. This came after months of discipleship. A common practice in this country is for people to choose a Christian name to go by from the time they identify with the Body of Christ at baptism. When the 4 guys started considering names, Bo said he wanted a name of Jesus! I, Becky, will always call him "my Bo," but we now refer to him as Emmanuel! How appropriate! God has certainly been with us as He brought this precious boy into our lives!
The teams are real troopers when it comes to lunch options. Peanut Butter & jelly, Laughing Cow Cheese and tuna get old after a few days. But of course, POWER BARS come in handy!! The guys and gals work and eat in shifts.
Eight women on our May team worked in shifts busting through solid rock with pick axes. The area is being prepared for a foundation for a tower that will hold a water tank at Hosetta School for Children with Mental Challenges! Way to go girls!!!
