April 2016

The new soccer league season started six weeks ago.  Due to the politics of the soccer league here, Team Colorado has only played two games.  Team Colorado has won both games that we have played.  Both were tough fought wins.  The teams in the 18 and under division are really good.

 

We were able to get all the dirt from the last landslide against the school dug out.  The Chet’s Creek team (that is scheduled to come in June), sent funds for us to hire a local contractor to pour the foundation for the wall.  The team plans to build the wall on the north side of the school in June.  Huge answer to prayer, and lots of praising God!!!

 

Two volunteers (Robert and ‘G’) came and built the tower for the water tank.  Both Robert and G are construction contractors, so thank you God for putting it on their hearts to use their skills to help us.  The C4C Board took a step of faith and approved the purchase of materials and a tank.  Hector, some of the court teens and I poured the foundation for the tower.  Then Robert and G came and built it.  They came back a few days and connected the tank to the school water lines.

 

Okay, I have yet another surprise that God orchestrated.  Our new aide at school (Amanda), also volunteers with the island Bomberos (fire department).  She told Jamie to write a letter to the Bomberos and they would come fill the water tank for us.  Jamie wrote a letter and a few days later the fire truck came and they filled our water tank; for FREE!!  I love how God works His miracles.

 

We can now actually flush the toilet at school and it will automatically refill; all by itself!  We can then turn on the faucet and wash our hands!

 

We continually praise God for all of you who support what God has us doing here in Roatan.  Thank you all very much.

 

The classes at Casa de Luz are still going great.  Jamie and Ivonne have trained our new aide.  Amanda still has a lot to learn but we believe she is prepared to help Ivonne with the classes while we are sharing what God is doing in Roatan with our friends in the States.

 

Jamie has spent several nights preparing lesson plans for Ivonne and Amanda to teach while we are in the States.  We really appreciate Ivonne’s willingness to help us and also for Amanda who is doing her best to learn the job.

Have a great week – Ron and Jamie
