# 185 our story

The children ate tamales or turkey at midnight & then set off fireworks. So they had breakfast in their dorms A dozen or so teens ate in our home at midnight. Some of the kids went to bed at 4am. I wore ear plugs so slept through it all.

Dottie, Bob and I had Christmas dinner with Tony & Lily’s home.

We celebrated our 10thyear in Guatemala. We received three new children with one named Jonathon. That gives us 6 Jonathons.  March 1, 1999: Wayne, Steve, Ray and Curtis finished all of the electrical in the multi-purpose building so we can nor install all the commercial items such as stoves, walk-in fridge, dish washer, clothes washers and dryers.

I can hardly believe what God has done in these last 10 years. Our dream was to come to Guatemala and take in 20 to 25 children and give them a good life with an opportunity to know Jesus, get an education, be cared for physically & love them. Now we are at 300 children on campus and people from all over the USA are helping us financially as well as the hundreds who come with their trade skills to help.

March 11thI had a word with Bill Clinton as he is here for a meeting with all of the Presidents of the Americas. 16th: The electric company has agreed to install three phase as well as proving another transformer.

17th: Last night thieves cut the razor wire on the top of the cement block fence behind the kitchen and stole a welding machine, electric saws and drills and other items.

19th: The pastor of First Baptist in Bunkie, La. which is my home town have been here a week. They are Dennis and Lori and have been married only two months. He was a missionary in Peru for 11 years. He preached for me Sunday.

23rd: Our daughter, Becky, had a baby girl last night whom she named Hannah. The most difficult part of being a missionary is that we miss being with our family for times like this.
