If you received our most recent newsletter, you read about the school in Daboto. (If you didn’t read it, you can see it here) I had so many pictures from Daboto that won’t all fit in a newsletter, so I thought I’d share them here. We are so excited and so blessed to be a part of this project, even if it’s just a small part!
Every single piece of wood, every piece of furniture, every tool that is offloading from Nathan’s airplane is carried by-hand to the work site, all the way down the airstrip, then down a narrow little path…it’s not close. But there are plenty of helping hands to do the work!
Another project that we didn’t mention in the newsletter is this little clinic. Siloam is a rather large medical group (is that the right term?) There are several Siloam Hospitals in Indonesia. It is, in fact, where Nathan was treated many, many years ago when he was having severe Crohn’s problems. These clinic employs several workers that run this little clinic, treating patients and passing out medicine. Of course, if there are any major medical issues that cannot be handled at the clinic, a med-evac will still be called.
I just love seeing all of these faces! Can you even begin to wrap your brain around the amazingness that this little school, in this little village is the time first ever, in the history of time, Moi kids have received a formal education? Because I sure can’t.
This is the teacher dorm and the solor panels that power it and the school. No power company in the middle of the jungle! I believe that the teacher dorm is now complete and the teacher will be moving in soon.
And, of course, we can’t say goodbye without a picture of an airplane and a grass airstrip, right?
