The farming coop continues its work on the cistern which will store water for irrigation. In addition to the cistern, construction began on a special area of land for cultivating seedlings. Project management professional Kaka provides instruction on business, agriculture, and cooperative processes. Finally, the tutoring and medical clinic efforts continue.
Pedro and Kessia hosted a team of 8 young adults doing missions work with a focus of evangelism. As a result, unexpected doors opened in the communities as home visits happened. The tutoring, guitar lessons, and literacy classes continue to grow. Enjoy the pictures and video windows into the communities!
