Chicken Farm

The chicken farm is up and going at Bethel. We got 500 birds from a hatchery in Bamako. We lost 10% in travel from Bamako to Koutiala, but haven't lost any since. If all works well, we will be able to run Bethel Bible on the profits of just the eggs produced from one batch in one year. We have started the vaccination process and just completed the beak trimming. The one picture is of Benjamin learning the beak trimming. So far so good. Thanks for all your support.

Back at it in Koutiala

Well, its been an interesting move back to Koutiala, but God has been faithful in meeting our needs. It all started by the South African Air loosing one of our bags that was loaded at the gate of the D.C. airport. Thankfully, we just got news that they found it and we will be getting it this Thursday. Then when we got back to our Apt., both our stove and fridge broke. We still don't have the parts for either one of these. Hopefully within a couple of weeks we can get them working. Next, my motorcycle would start or run, but I spent a little time working on it (which is a joy for me to work on motorcycles). Last Friday, Daniel got bit by a dog here on the compound and now we have to figure what we are going to do with the dog. It has been a challenging two week start.
Please keep praying for us as we are settling in and working out what God has for us to do. We thank all of you for your support.
