I (Becky) am safely in Texas as of this evening, and Tom is holding down the fort in Sierra Leone! I ask for your prayers as I coordinate a shipment of building materials for him, as well as various much needed supplies and food items. This will be far out of my comfort zone, but I’m thankful to have the help of several family and friends.
We were privileged to host The 25 Project teams in November and February! Youth camps for former street boys and orphans, visits to the Tombo fishing village where ministry has expanded, encouragement of so many others that we serve here, and the blessing they were to us personally cannot be overstated! It was wonderful to have them!
The addition of the new water well, raising of a tower for a water tank, and eventual piping leading to the toilet/shower building is coming along great at the orphanage! It is hot, hard, slow work, but will mean so much to Auntie Margaret and the kiddos! Our appreciation to the Jefferson City West Rotary Club in MO for the global grant that has made this possible!
Construction at the special needs school is lookin’ good! The Sierra Leoneans who work alongside Tom are always encouraged by team members, and we can’t wait for May/June as we host the GoSendMe Global bunch from Texas! There may be a couple of slots left for team members, so let me know if you would like info!!
All of our family in Texas are doing well, and I look forward to lots of hugs before I make my way back to Sweet Salone! We believe it will likely be 2018 before we head to the USA again, so I hope to store up plenty of hugs and kisses to hold me over!
THANK YOU so much for your prayers for us and those we serve! We could not do what we do without you!! And to our supporters, our deepest gratitude for your sacrifice!
Our love in Christ Jesus! It’s all for the Kingdom!
Beck … (and Tom)
