Its nearly complete!

The first earth bag hut will be move in ready by the end of the coming week!

The soon-to-be new residents.
Emma has been part of the ministry for many years--he and his family "followed" us to Kitgum from Entebbe.

Please join us in prayer as we weekly walk by faith.

Trusting the Lord to provide for the next phase of building.

 Looking down the cistern-45 feet {hand dug} and counting...

A view of the farm {papaya trees} and furrows of beans--planted by our children!

 Inside the house.


Two of the laborers with Ephraim and Ethan.

Composting toilet...in the making.

Raised beds for carrots.

"And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee."  Psalm 90:10

Question:

Will you paint or coat with lime wash the exterior of the homes? If not, how does the earth not wash away in the rains?

LOOK at your fruit trees! and CARROTS! whoop. Glad to see everything coming together.

Always good questions my friend.

The lime was mixed with the mud, however, a "clean" coat will be applied on the outside soon.

Thanks for asking :-)

Blessings,
S

Beautiful! I'll be exploring your blog here for a bit, to try and get to know you somewhat. Your comments on my blog a few days ago really blessed me, and I'd like to bless you in turn.

Keep up your faithful work!
