For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.
Just a little update to the ministry here in Rwanda. Some of you may not have heard, but we moved to the village we are working in on May 1st and started house sitting for our fellow missionaries from Canada, while they went back to Canada to give birth to their first child.
Update on the two classrooms - with money donated we were able to finish a much needed outdoor 6 hole toilet, one complete classroom and half of a second classroom. Thank you very much to all who contributed towards this project. The finished classroom is in use and very well liked.
Also April 20th the sewing school moved into a new five room building that gives us the needed space for our classroom, production, office, a store and a potential classroom for short seminars. It has been such a blessing to us. We are still praying for monthly support to keep it running. In about three months we need to have a $1000.00 a month in place to keep the school running in this location.
Our present sewing students are doing very well. They are sewing the best yet, this is due to a change in the way we are teaching.
We are hoping that production will start soon. Diane will make the graduation gowns for our graduation celebrations in September.
June 20 we bought land to build a home, 2.19 plots, they are 600 sq Meters per lot. We hope to start building soon, we need to move out of the home where we are house sitting sometime in September.
We want to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us over the passed three years. Without you, we would not have seen the Lord at work in so many lives. You are a big part of our ministry here in Rwanda. Thanks.
Praise the Lord with us as the work goes forward here in Ryabega, Rwanda, Africa.
Love in Christ,
Peter and Diane Salmond
