God has asked me to be a positive male role model
Many of the boys I work with don't know who their fathers are. They have had no role models in their lives. We build things to help other missionaries, schools and churches.... Sometimes we just make really cool wooden cars for the kids to play with. Each day the boys and I talk about problems in their lives, they get some good food and a hot shower at the end of the day. I give them some pocket money for their help, this gives them money for the bus, helps them with school fees and supplies. This past week one of the boys Elvin used part of his money to buy medicine for his sick mom. I call them carpentry classes but it is much much more. We are building missionaries. The beautiful furniture that you see is all hand made by the boys and me. We ask for our clients to pay for materials and we ask for a gift to our ministry upon delivery. These gifts fall way short of the necessary costs of our ministry, it is your sacrifice and help that makes this all possible.
