I give a lots of thanks to my God for everything, I have never thought that one day I could manager a big project like that, it’s a blessing from God, proud of you Husby family💪🏻💪🏻👨❤️👨👨❤️👨
I give thanks that God connected him to me, and with many hands, through Jesus, this continues to move forward!
Quick little videos of the children learning
Neema, our pre school teacher wrote this to me: “Do you remember that baby girl? She was the one who cried most of the time, and I carried her while I taught. Now I am proud of her. She is very bright!” She is the girl in this fist video. What a difference 3 months has made!
Up to date list of itemized costs
Emmanuel sends me itemized bookkeeping all done on paper. I put the expenses on a spread sheet. My son, Erik, helped me organize it. This list includes everything from the start of the project in Sept. 2017 to this April 2018. This includes a school building with 4 large 24 x 24 feet rooms fully finished inside and outside, a washroom for girls and boys, a water tower, a cistern, trees and shrubs planted, a play set, desks, school bus, legal paperwork to government, paying the teachers, buying books and supplies, food for children and teachers.
The roof framing is done on building number 2
Wood framing is complete on our second school building. Baring any rain, metal roof will be next! It amazes me how fast they work. The wood was purchased April 10th and the framing was completed on the 15th, with a few rain days in-between.
This is the book work Emanuel does for me. This is a detailed list of items needed and purchased for the new wood roofing frame you see.
