As the rain continues to hinder our relief efforts, we are able to use that as an opportunity to meet new people in the surrounding communities. Some of these great people have helped us patch roads towards Bonbon, while others have assisted us closer to home.
Our leaders have also met with the mayor of the town of Bonbon in order to better help provide relief and rebuilding in this area. We are excited to see how God uses these relationships in the future!
Te Wouj Community
As the home rebuilding effort continues, we are also looking to reopen Te Wouj School in the near future! Much preparation has to be made, including a temporary structure in which to hold class. We are thankful to our friends at USAID who have braved the high river to assist in building the temporary structure. Please pray that the level and force of the river would fall so that our teachers and students can safely cross to get to school each day.
In addition to a temporary structure next to the old school building, we are beginning to rebuild our school building! We are excited about these plans for a new school and we pray for this new building to equip and empower our elementary students even better than before.
