The aftershocks have slowed down… in frequency & in strength… but last night (1am) we had a 4.5 aftershock that shock the bed enough to get our attention. They’re so infrequent now that I’m not used to them anymore and last nights spooked me & I couldn’t get back to sleep. I laid awake thinking about the sponsorship letters the kids are writing (that will get mailed to the sponsors with the July newsletter). Even though Renel & I have been sleeping in our house for a few months, Pastor Luc & the kids are still sleeping outside in tents. The Children’s Home is the only building on our compound that wasn’t seriously damaged and the kids could move back into it as soon as they get the “word” from Pastor Luc. The kids are writing about the earthquake in their sponsor letters and almost every single one of them says they’re not ready to move back inside… they are afraid of another big earthquake. I’ve been trying to encourage them to feel safe inside but last nights aftershock will make it a lot harder.

On another note, Renel hung the signs my brother painted yesterday…

Today, we finished taking pictures of the donated dresses…

Some of the boys were jealous…

MEI School (in Abbotsford) has been partnering with H2H for several years and does a lot of fundraising for us. They are having a “celebration” tomorrow to finish off this years fundraising and they asked me to do a video to show at their assembly. Eliyou is starring in the video and he’s so cute that I wanted to share it with you too… especially since so many of you deserve a huge thank you too for all that you’ve done to support us since the earthquake… THANK YOU… from Eliyou and all of the other kids here!!!
