what's happening at Strong Missions?

Well since April 11th there has been no work groups here at Strong Missions- not until May 31st anyways, when West Univ. UMC from Houston, TX will be arriving here in Carrillos.

Despite this gap of having no missions groups working with us, there still is much going on around here. Wilbur, Wilmer, and Wagner are here at the house Monday thru Saturday getting the house ready for the large number of people and groups that will be coming to work all during the June, July, and into the first couple of weeks in August.

Current Work Projects at the house include: a canvas awning over the open air area of the front porch of the main house is being installed. Outdoor bathrooms and showers are also being built on the side of the first house. All of this is to help better accommodate the people of the groups to come during the rainy season here in Costa Rica- which starts during the summer months of the continental U.S.
Work at the local Pentecostal Church is also being done. A small wall is under construction to help the church in its operation of a feeding program that it does.

Some updated photos and videos have been posted to the Flickr account.
