Another week has gone by here during the dry season. The rain stopped months ago, the green grassy areas are now dry and brown. The ponds and lowlands have slowly shrunk and dried up. The sun beats down and the days seem much warmer. It will be many weeks before the rainy season arrives.
This past week, has been exciting as we submitted and received an approval on another project. We worked on getting a vaccination appointment, and by a small miracle, received the opportunity. Here, one gets a vaccination card that indicates when it was done. It allows greater travel opportunities, and may prevent us from going into one of the many forced quarantines occurring around the country. There is a system here using a QR code. Each building has a QR code at the front door. One is required to scan the code upon entry. If someone tests positive, they recreate where the person was, close the building or business, that they entered and scuttle those in the building into quarantine for two weeks. We see people being quarantined in school buildings and in other large buildings, not necessarily having sleeping or proper bathroom accommodations. We are anxious not to have that opportunity. For us, getting the vaccine may help us to move about the country more freely.
We are getting reports from our contractors of the progress that they are making on the many contracts that are in place. We leave on Monday to go check on the projects and to record what has taken place. We are delighted with the reports of the progress. We are anxious to begin new work and will look for the opportunities that are in front of us.
It is exciting for us to see the work progressing. Contracts are turning into reality. The humanitarian effort here is blessing lives young and old. We are thrilled! The humanitarian funds of the church are blessing lives. We are blessed to be a part of it. Heaven is in the details. God is watching over His children.
We love you all. May God’s blessings be in your homes and in your hearts. Take courage when hard things come along, as they surely will. He hears your prayers, he knows your heart. All things will work out in time.
