Koraput Education Project

About 5 minutes from my home, School District #91 is building a new elementary school. It is supposed to cost around $10 million and will be the most innovative and progressive school in the district. Yet, I doubt it will accomplish more than a bamboo Free Tuition school in Koraput India. Recently Pastor Singh announced that two of our students were able to pass the 10th grade exams because of the teacher’s efforts. Their names are Joseph Mahanandia and Gopana Mahanandia. With this exciting news came a dilemma. We were informed that it would cost $300 for the two of them to enroll in a college program and, by the way, they needed to enroll two days from the date of our e-mail. Because a couple of you have contributed ahead for the year, we had that much extra that we could send. If we sent that money, however, it would leave us short at the end of the year. I contacted Gordon Carter from Charity Anywhere. He brought me back to reality with one simple statement: “Proceed with faith. The Lord will make sure we have enough money when we need it.” That day he forwarded the money for our college-bound grads. The students were excited and all of the survivors rejoiced at their opportunity. Other students decided they would work hard to pass their 10th grade exams. Incidentally, my sister’s neighborhood decided rather than to give neighborhood gifts for Christmas, they all would contribute to our education fund. Some of the $300 has already been recovered. Thanks to each of you, a small school in Koraput is accomplishing what a $10 million school will do. Here are the pictures the pastor has sent.

Report on work in Ecuador for 2011

Dr. Zambrano just called and reported that they served over 51,000 people last year with the dental and medical team he has.  34,000 were under the contract with Petro Ecuador Oil Company and 17,000 elsewhere.  What a great work he has done with such a limited budget. Dr. Zambrano and his family plans to be here in the USA on Feb. 4-18.  We are always looking for funds and donors to continue this great work.  If you know of anyone that would consider helping and want to meet Dr. Zambrano, let me know.  He will be staying in Bountiful. BE GOOD AND DO GOOD. Gordon Carter

Mexico Trip

A group of around 30 people drove down to Tijuana Mexico over the Christmas break to do some construction projects for some needy families. Clint Carter took his flip video along and took some short video clips of some of the activities. We would like to thank all of those families, and students for giving of their time and money to help on this project. We hope that all that were involved found the experience fun and rewarding.

Trip to Pavones, Costa Rica

Trip to Pavones, Costa Rica The volunteers of www.helpbuildschoolsaroundtheworld.org have bought tickets and are gearing up to leave November 15th 2011 to the small town Pavones, Costa Rica.

Here are some things the Homeschool program needs:

1. Computer Printer. 2. Homeschool Books for 6 more students. 3. Donations to help pay for the teacher.

Goodbye Guatemala

Just a quick note to let you all know that we are leaving Guatemala this morning. We are both exhausted but the work here was very rewarding. We can’t wait to tell you about it. We had some complications and had to stay a few extra days.

We had a very hard working group this trip. They are continuing on for the next week to lay tile at the daycare in Questaltanago. We will be in touch with you later.

Safe in Guatemala

The group left this morning and went to Lake Atitlan. They spent some time at an orphanage this morning then went to the lake. It will be really beautiful there. They are staying there tonight then heading to Guatemala City tomorrow. We will meet up with them there.

The day care building is built very well and Dan Nielsen painted this beautiful mural on the outside wall. Great party with the village children last night. Some playground equipment was delivered a couple of days ago and the children have gone nuts.

We have had some incredible experiences. The scenery is spectacular. It was quite warm in Senahu but here we are quite cold. In fact I have worn my jacket all day. Please continue your prayers for us. The rain has not been as bad as it could be and has held off while we have been working. We stayed at this beautiful coffee plantation house one night at the top of the mountains. The rain came and thunder and lightning came in right after we got there. It was spectacular!!!! Very nice accommodations there!

We gave out incaperina to the people in the village near by. There were twin one month olds that we so worrisome. I know there was one child that I might of saved because I was there. I was helping with the incaperina delivery and this little 5 month girl came. But she had not gained weight in 2 months and Yvonne was telling her mother that she couldn´t be on the program any more because she was probably not getting the food. I reached over and touched the child´s arm she was burning with fever. I told Yvonne that this child was sick. The mother said she had been sick but she couldn´t get the medicine. We had her stay back to see the healthcare worker. Money was made available so she could get the medicine and of course she is still able to get the incaperina. There were some tender moments.

We went to Sumac Shampay which was a mountain pools made from a river stream. The river was dirty of course but these pools were blue and beautiful. I could imagine in my mind that the Waters of Mormon looked like this area. Amazing. We may try to fly to Tekal this week. We are planning to meet with church leaders on Wed. Just by coincidence the area humanitarian leader over all Central America was in Senahu while we were there. We want to talk to him about Humanitarian opportunities in the vilages there. The lady, Yvonne; really scared us to death with all the tales she told us, but we have felt quite safe everywhere. We were stopped by the police on one road but as soon as we showed our passport entry mark they waved us on. Lots of drug traffic in the area around Coban. Love to all of you. I have a TON of things in my heart that I cannot write at this time. It is extremely tender.

Again..continue your prayers for us. Susan
