Help from Simon and Gracio
The kids have been praying for years to be able to build good dorms for them to sleep in. We do not yet have enough money to complete the first one but we have enough to at least begin construction! Everyone is overjoyed about this! The reason why this is even possible is because Simon in Chimoio allowed us to borrow his truck for hauling construction supplies while Gracio had the truck up here in Nampula for two weeks. Gracio’s help transporting materials has helped us tremendously and allowed us to pay for sand, rock and cement instead of spending all our money on truck rental fees. Gracio has been amazing as he has worked many days hauling loads of materials back and forth to the orphanage from 4am to 10pm. Gracio also used the truck to transport the entire orphanage to church, over three miles away, on Sunday.
