TREES PLANTED LAST WEEK
HOLES IN THE GROUND TONIGHT
("oh where oh were did my little trees go, oh where oh were did they go?"
PLANTING STARTED last week with fruit trees, bushes and lots of flowers. Tonight when Sondra went back to the farm, someone had gone into fruit tree row and took out two of her fruit trees. This might seem like a simple matter, but when you realize that even leaving the farm for a short time, it opens the door for loss and theft... it is devastating.
TOMORROW we will dig up all the fruit trees and bring them closer to the house. Not a problem, just very sad. The Jeremiah Youth will all go out to the farm with us tomorrow and we will do some work on the land...trimming bushes, clearing heaps of brush, moving dirt and readying the land for more planting.
WE PRAY for the persons who felt they needed to use Sondra's trees as their own in their own place....we pray for a good crop of fruit as they mature and for the new owner to see a new path of behavior in the future.
EAGLES NEST has great potential for Life Skill development. Even tonight one of our college girls is out to the farm with Sondra. They have been working on English, playing the card game "hearts," cooking together and just building a relationship. Sveta will be with Sondra through tomorrow and then back to Tokmok to prepare for school on Monday.
EAGLES NEST needs lots of work and as the work continues we need lots of prayer.
|This will be the chicken house - great place to come into at night and leave eggs|
before heading out in the morning!
|Coal "house" on the left and alley way to the outhouse!|
|When you cannot ride - you push!|
|Our job tomorrow to clean this area along with several other areas.|
|New windows in! Wahoooooo. And next month a new roof.|
|Fence needed for sure. Maybe this would stop the theft losses.|
|This heats the house. Keeps it warm - but is a lot of work.|
|Some of our youth just hanging out inside the house.|
|Back to work burning brush.|
|This is a summer kitchen and will be a wonderful place for BBQ|
making. Doesn't look like much, but has great cazan spots inside.
|Lots of burning.|
|Sveta is a hard worker and so much fun. LJ is resting after getting the|
fire going and brush pulled over. Sondra digging out a tree stump.
|Trees today - who knows tomorrow?|
|Just a view of the farm.|
|Sondra is a hard worker.|
