I feel bad when I write something that confuses people. A few months ago I said that we were building a church in a village & could do that for $5,000. Someone who read that was upset because they thought another missionary was not being truthful when they said it cost more. You need to realize that the churches each of us build are very different depending on size, location, etc. I just finished one that cost us over $20,000. So please forgive the confusion.
Today it cost us $4,400 just for spiral notebooks for elementary & high school to begin the new school year. Everything here has gone up more than 12% over last year. But that does not move God Aleluya!!
