For all of you who have helped and been following this journey, I have GREAT news. The first phase of the Children's Village is done and the children moved in TUESDAY!!

Here is a picture of the old orphanage building. All 80 children stayed in this two story house on the side of a mountain with no yard, running water, electricity or beds for each kid.

The play space consisted of the two small hallways surrounding the interior rooms.

Just two days ago, the kiddos saw their new home. Many of them for the first time.
I love the anticipation in this picture!

Some of the kids singing at the inauguration and dedication.

Just taking it all in...

God is good!! So thankful for His provision for these kids.
