House Painting Day

This has been a week of firsts for the team here. Today we painted our first house to be painted on the Hill. Earlier in the week, we took some paint samples to each family and let them pick the color they want their house painted. Ms. Martha picked Salmon. Since she is our oldest resident, we decided to start with hers.

First thing this morning, the team went up to Ms Martha’s house with supplies in tow. First they posed for a picture with Ms Martha in front of her unpainted house. Next, they wrote sweet messages to her before painting. Next, they let Ms. Martha apply the first roll of paint to her house, then they got to work! In no time, the whole house was painted and they started working on the trim. Look at what a difference a little color makes!! This Hill will transform in the weeks to come as we continue painting houses on the Hill.

God is blessing this village tremendously, and we are so very thankful that He constantly sends his people to be used in His blessings. What a wonderful two weeks we have had! Hallelujah!
