It's been awhile! We are currently in the States for a visit and will return Dec. 31. I have been blessed in that my former employer had some work for me, so I was able to work for about seven weeks as a contractor and raise some living expenses for the home. We were even more blessed in that Paula needed surgery and her former doctor (Dr. Michael White) performed it without charging. Needless to say, American health insurance is not in the budget for most volunteers. :-) We are so looking forward to returning. We desperately want to see the boys. We are also looking forward to implementing our plans next year that I hope will set us on a path of financial independence (depending only upon the Lord). We have three not so little little piggies that are about to give birth to roughly 30 little piggies before March. By the end of the year, we hope to be raising, processing and selling over 400 piggies per year. That will certainly go a long way in paying the expenses of the home. The Lord is good. He provided a place that has great potential if we are faithful, diligent stewards. We are also growing corn and soybeans to feed the pigs. In a few years, the 120 fruit and avocado trees we planted this year also ought to help fund the home, more homes, more children and eventually a school.
