DR House Fully Funded!
Thanks to the Home Team!
Big news to report: the house we are building in the Dominican Republic is now FULLY FUNDED! 
Thanks to one large and many small donations in the past week, we now have enough funds on hand to complete the house so that Leidy's family can begin to live in it sometime in June. The concrete block walls have been erected, and the remaining steps are to dig the septic pit, install the wooden roof beams and metal roofing sheets, run the electrical and plumbing tubing, fill the sub-floor with dirt and concrete rubble and then pour a smooth concrete floor on top of that, install the doors and windows, install the electrical wires and plumbing pipes -- and that's it. Some of this remaining work will be done by villagers in the next month, and our missioners will work on the rest while we are there. We arrive on June 12 -- one month from today. Thanks so much to everyone on the Home Team who made it possible for this house construction project to move along so quickly and so smoothly. 
We received 14 new photos of the house last week, and they are in this album with all of the older ones if you would like to take a look:
