FIRST WEEK OF THE NEW YEAR
Our one goal this week was to complete the Teen Boy’s Dorm, so they could be settled in before school starts Jan. 14th.
Rains caused a few setbacks with the painting, but all will be finished tomorrow.
The metal chimney is hung in the kitchen and the 6 screen doors are being made.
On Monday, the boys will clean the new site and pack up the old dorm for the move on Tuesday morning.
This is a 2 year project coming to completion.
PTL! The complex is BEAUTIFUL and the boys are very excited about their new home.
It’s a relief to have it finally finished.
Wood is scarce and expensive, so we opted to make their study room and dining room tables from concrete.
With teenage boys, the more INDESTRUCTABLE, the better.
21 NEW ROCKET STOVES IN PROGRESS
Each of our widows houses is receiving the new “Rocket Stove” for more fuel efficiency and faster cooking with less smoke.
Now that the bricklayers have completed the dorm, they are busy installing a Rocket stove in each of our widow’s homes.
90 GOATS AND MORE ON THE WAY!
The 65 females have been busy this year, producing 24 babies. Thirteen boys and 11 girls at present count.
The females were very young when purchased in June, so all have now had their 1st babies and are pregnant with their 2nd.
Yesterday, our 6 goat herders wrangled goats for 2 hours so they could be dewormed.
Worms are the biggest killer of goats (blood suckers that cause severe anemia), so a good deworming program is the key to health.
It’s a 2 hour job as each goat has to be weighed (using a girth tape measure), and the right amount of dewormer drawn up into a metal tip oral syringe, as goats have VERY powerful jaws. (You must know where to put your thumb when inserting the syringe, or lose it).
I’ve learned much this year while studying “goat raising” and from the experiences of treating the sick ones.
The program will flourish in 2013 as all the females have the capability of producing 2 or more offspring/year.
Thank you for helping us get this program “up and running” to give starter herds to orphans who want to raise goats for a living.
The rains are pouring down almost daily. All the fields are planted and now we pray for God’s blessings for the crops to give a maximum harvest.
Ten more days and I’ll be leaving Moz. (16th) for a Christian retreat in the mountains of South Africa.
Time for this bunny to take a week off to “rest and refresh” with God in His beautiful creation.
