Below is this week’s report from Pastor Joel. He writes of how God has blessed in the past years. We began this orphanage in final months of 2016, and it is wonderful to review all that the Lord has brought to pass in the time since then. I might add to the list that Joel made, that the children also now have a family in the people of the church. The kids feel blessed to be able to be there.
As far as the water/irrigation system, the concrete of the tower is curing and will soon be ready to have the water tank placed. We thank the Lord that later this week it looks like we will be able to send another bank transfer so that they will be able to purchase the pump and remaining piping.
We are beginning with sprinklers for irrigation. The hydroponic system will be a later development, and you will see in Joel’s letter that there is difficulty in getting the equipment for a drip system. It’s another one of those situations where I’d like to be there, because I would like to do some experiments with a simplified system.
Maybe along with my own hydroponic plot in my own garden this summer, perhaps I will add a drip irrigation as well.
We’ll see. It all takes time.
