TRUCKING IN THE BEANS.
God is so, so good to us, for we made our quota before other buyers got to the beans.
WEIGHING THE SACKS.
Price went up from last year, but that is to be expected with short supply and BIG demand.
SPRAYING AND SACKING THE BEANS FOR STORAGE.
Our team of 63 men managed the processing and storage in THREE DAYS! Our team really pulled their weight and did a tremendous job
STACKING THE BEANS (EACH SACK WEIGHS 132 LBS. ‚OR
The pics tell it better than I can.
BUSH BUNNY TIDBITS
Bean buying “consumed” us this week, but we still hosted 2 sets of INSPECTORS for our houses. One group on Tuesday, who just drove up without notice.
They loved our work. Then the BIGGY—2 health inspectors who performed the final health inspection for our National Orphanage Licensing.
We passed with only a request for a few minor adjustments (painting boys and girls symbols on the bathrooms doors), and believe it or not (color changes of some of the paint used inside the houses. These men prefer white vs. our cheerful yellow, so we must repaint, (not a great color for young boys with dirty hands).
ON A PERSONAL NOTE:
My Mom, Connie, is back in the hospital, and my Dad, Willard, has been sick with a respiratory infection/allergies this week. Mom has multiple problems and is very weak. Progress will be slow.
Prayer is greatly appreciated for both of them.
Dawn and I are having a great time working and fellowshipping together. She did a great job as Observer/Guard at the Bean Barn these last 2 days. (Dawn flew in from South Africa on Thursday night, after getting her Residency visa). We only had a few men in our group of 63 who tried to “hide” vs. doing their work. Dawn’s “eagle eyes” kept everything running smoothly.
Some of the men who KNEW I couldn’t have seen them sneak behind the barn, began to think I had eyes in the back of my head! I didn’t bother to tell them otherwise. Tee Hee.
Super nice to have a 2nd set of eyes on duty!
