City of Rest....Grafton location

I, Becky, was thrilled last week to visit the new City of Rest in Grafton!! The building is complete and finishing touches are underway to prepare for the relocation of the residents on April 23rd from the downtown site.  City of Rest serves those suffering from alcohol and drug addictions, as well as folks with mental challenges. Our teams have been privileged to work alongside Mission Direct UK since 2008 on projects at both locations. BRAVO Mission Direct and dozens of team members for your dedication to this amazing work!!!

War Widows: Setting the Container

We will soon conclude 2 years of work with the War Widows in Grafton in the areas of agriculture and skills development. We are thankful for a donor that has provided a container (the brown one) for storage of the rice harvest and all skills supplies. Tom and helpers are setting the forms to raise the container, and hope to have it in place asap!

Bo at the beach!

It's been fun to have Bo back with us! 
He makes me laugh!! 
He experienced some serious setbacks with his skin condition for the first month, 
but we have it under control over the last couple of weeks. 
Thank the Lord! 
He and I are in school mode daily!
 He is making great progress in math, and his confidence level is growing in all subjects.

Men's Skills Graduation!

So thankful to our instructors, Ishmael & Ibrahim, for 2 years of serving these young men of the Jui area. They and Tom were so proud of the students for their hard work through a year of theory and a year of practical experience. Our prayers are with them as team members Donald, David and Rochelle begin the next phase: resumes, letters of recommendation and potential business cooperatives! EXCITING!
