Over the next year we were able to find enough funding to purchase land, and then to put in a well . Next we put in a septic system and latrines for the future school to keep that well clean—vital in a country where water-borne diseases are a killer. And then, as funds starting running low, we put in a temporary school that at least had a solid roof that didn’t leak. Just after that tin-roof structure was finished, we stood inside it in front of the children and promised them that concrete walls and real classrooms were next. As always, we didn’t know how we’d get the funds, but we knew that good Lord would provide.
