Vacation Bible School

July 29th, 2013

These summers days are hot and humid. We often have rain in the afternoon, but that didn’t stop as many as 80 children from gathering at Timothy House for VBS! It is a lot of work for our small house church, but the blessing is worth it. Hearing the children practice their memory verses as they walk down the street, or singing the new songs they have learned, make all the effort worth while. It seemed like every age group was well represented. I’m sure we created some good memories and the seeds of God’s word were planted in many hearts.

Our Post for May

May 28th, 2013

Where has the time gone?! June is now upon us. The weather has been wonderful, cool mornings and evenings, but it is getting hot during the days. Hearing of the tornadoes back home reminds us of Indiana weather. Here you forget about the weather because it goes months sometimes without a cloud in the sky. Sometimes there is a little wind, but that’s about it. It is a little smokey today as there are wildfires in the mountains around here.

The Blessing of Work and Easter/Spring Break

April 5th, 2013

When a young person faces a mountain of dirt, he or she has two options.

1) It’s too big. I’ll never move it, so I won’t even start.
2) Stick the shovel in. Work hard and in time, the mountain disappears.

Those that take the first option fail to achieve anything significant in the entire life. Those that choose the second option benefit the following ways:

1) They learn and grow stronger and are then ready for bigger and better jobs
2) They see how much can be accomplished with hard work over time
3) They decide to study so that they don’t have to push a shovel their whole life

The boys hard at work leveling out a large mound of dirt.  They were learning good work ethic and had the satisfaction of completing a difficult job.

February Pictures

February 18th, 2013

We just had to climb this tree for a picture after a Sunday afternoon picnic.  It was kind of cold and cloudy out but what do you expect in early February.

This was our first costume party!  Bob especially enjoyed being Zacharias.  He played the role well.  He didn't talk for the first half of the party until he couldn't stand it and started talking!  (Joy dressed up as his wife Elisabeth-pregnant with John.)

La Borrega (the sheep) and La Estufa (the stove)

January 13th, 2013

The TH children will have some extra daily chores to do for a while thanks to 2 new additions. They will need to gather food (grass) for the sheep and also gather wood (leña) for the new homemade wood burning stove.

The Sheep

img_1100
We visited Casa Vida y Esperanza (House of Life and Hope) so that the TH children could see all the animals.

img_1101
Here is Daniel and Jesus. They liked the sheep so much that we brought one home with us! We brought her home in our van. She was tied up, so we asked her how she was getting along and she said “baa-aaaad!”

img_1102
The children watch as our friend “Limon” lassos a pregnant sheep, so we hope to have a little lamb soon!

The Stove

img_1114
The temperature was in the teens (Yes! It got down to 16 at night!) and we still had hot water in the bathroom, thanks to our home made solar water heating system. But the house was getting pretty chilly without heat, so we made a wood stove out of some metal we had.

During the day, the boys take long walks in the desert wilderness to gather mesquite wood to burn. This way they learn to appreciate a warm home!

img_1117
As you can see, it is a big hit! It warms the whole room. We can cook and warm water on top of it. It cooks a tortillia in about 5 seconds!

img_1120
Our house mom, Lucy, was especially thankful. She said so about 50 times!

img_1121
The stove design includes baffles inside to direct the hot gases over the cooking surface and sides, thus making the stove more efficient. The chimney passes through the second story, and I plan to build a small heat exchanger there so that the hot smoke heats the second floor too.
