My little helper Balla

It has been a long time since my last post. At the end of June, I had an accident with a 6" jointer and lost the top portion of my index finger. Three other fingers just had the sides taken off but they are still there. Typing has been a little more difficult not having the index finger to use but I am learning to do without.

These last few weeks I have had a little helper named Balla. Actually, he is everyone's helper. You will find him walking around anyone with white skin. He is a patient at the hospital and is undergoing chemo treatments. He is a cute little guy that is not afraid of anything. In these pictures, I was drawing out a new plumbing system for the pediatric building and Balla just had to help me carry around my ruler.

Keep praying for us as we try to finish out the construction of the 2nd and 3rd buildings. We hope to have them done by the first of the year. Thanks for all your prayers and support.

Balla is such a cute little helper! It's so hard to believe they're treating cancer in Koutiala, but I actually saw it happening while I was there this spring.
I have to admit it makes my heart smile to see the mobile phone sticking out of your pocket! I know there have been a few issues with it here and there, but it's good to see that the project God sent us for is still being used on a daily basis!
