7/16/2003. Our paid staff has risen to 40 people & this is the month that the law requires double salaries. This will rise to triple salaries at the end of the year. So we grow to the point where we will have nearly 100 paid staff you can see how faithful and good God has been to us. Today is December 4, 2019 and throughout all of these years God has been faithful to meet our needs.
There is a group here with Charlie E, and they installed a new huge electrical panel & will certainly carry the load to the back property.
7/17. Dottie and I flew to Houston where Kenny picked us up. We then went to Baton Rouge to visit my mother & my sister. Immediately we began shopping for Christmas so that we can get things to the port to ship to Guatemala.
7/18. Our son, Tony, is a student at LSU so we visited with him today. Many of you remember the troubles our teens have walking to San Bartolome to school & then back home in the evenings.

One drowned and the other was shot by rival gangs.
7/19. Dottie and I arrived in Gulf Port and immediately drove to see Mike B. where we unloaded the gifts we purchased.

So many people send things to him such as Christmas gifts, building supplies, tools, clothing and dozens of other items.
