Orphanage update Nov. 15

Sent on November 15

Dear friends and family,

All is still going well. The main purpose of this e-mail is to inform you that Blair and I will be leaving Dar es Salaam tomorrow, November 16. We will be going on a 5 day safari and then leaving for egypt on the 22 of November. So no updates will be coming for about a week. Progress on the orphanage will not slow down in the least, though. While we are in Egypt, we will be maintaining communication with the volunteer from Maine that introduced us to the orphanage in the first place. She is a member of the church, a very trustworthy young lady, and she has been with us every second of the way concerning this project. When more materials are needed, we will wire her the needed money. Again, no cold cash will be given to the orphanage, as we want to make sure every dollar is spent appropriately. We are buying enough materials today to get them through the next five days while we are gone. So every possible measure has been taken to insure that, even though we will not be here, the project will continue to go smoothly, and no funds will be lost or inappropriately spent.
I want everybody to know how deeply grateful I am for the incredible support we have recieved, in e-mails, donations, and prayers. I have been profoundly moved by this experienced. I wish you all could see the change that has been made here, not only in buildings and land developement, but also in the lives of the children and the directors of the orphanage. The directors of the orphanage send you all their appreciation. Johnson, the director, told me yesterday that news of this has been spread to many important figures in this region; including those in government, media, and business positions. This kind of publicity will also yield tremendous fruits. Thank you so much for how actively involved you have been in creating a miracle out here. It is an honor to work with you. Take care and I will write again as soon as possible.
