We recently bid farewell to 2 more teams from Elmbrook Church who were very helpful in continuing the work started by previous teams, including patient data entry, the preparation of meds for clinic, and wood-working projects. Thus concludes a 2-month season in which 5 teams joined us in ministry here, blessing us with their moral support and their eagerness to assist us in any way possible.

Only days after the final team left, construction on the clinic resumed, and it has not stopped for two weeks now. Our dump truck has made over 40 trips from Jeremie to Gatineau to stock the site with cement, sand, gravel, and rock, enabling the construction crew to work uninterrupted. The rock foundation has been going up quickly, and the crew will soon be pouring the bases of the columns. However, the threat of April showers looms large, so pray that this rainy season would be significantly drier than normal!
