Friday in Photos

The majority of our day was spent preparing for the team that arrives tomorrow at lunchtime. The kids and I cleaned and got bedrooms ready. Troy worked around the property on various things. It was pay day so everyone was upbeat. The employees here get paid the last Friday of each month. Troy is doing much better with converting their pay and figuring out their wage correctly. Everyone is paid in cash. No need to drive to the bank to make a deposit.

Paige is busy with a math marathon. She is ahead of schedule on all of her subjects except Math. Without TV and the many distractions we were accustomed to having it has been easy for her to focus on her work. It is not her fault that she is behing a little in math. Her Math teacher left the country without her and then was a little busy, but now they seem to have found their groove. Math in the morning, math at night.

Britt had a light day today. Three total first-aide customers. The last guy of the day (not this photo) was crying so hard, we felt bad for him. This little guy is Jeff and his mom is Giselle, one of the teachers here.
There has been a really fun construction project happening here all week. We have fun photos to share but want to wait until after the founder of Lifeline arrives tomorrow and sees it for himself first ... it is a surprise.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
