Building our home in the Bush.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are building our home in the rural African Bush. It is located about 16 mile north of the city of Chimoio. We are building it out of used brick and "cob" material. (Sand Clay and Straw). This is the latest picture of what we have accomplished so far. We hope to be able to put the roof on in the month of October, Lord willing. Just before the rains!!!!!

January 2009

It has been awhile since we last wrote in our Blog. It is our up to date news. We have decided to build our homes on the farm that we purchased last March. The farm is called Eden. For the past four months we have been searching for a farm closer than 16 miles to the town of Chimoio. But alas we haven't been able to find a suitable place. So we will be starting to build our homes on the Eden Farm. These are some of the pictures of the farm. So far this growing season we have planted over 1141 Eucalyptus trees as a boarder around the 440 acre farm, 1300 pineapple plants, four acres of corn and will be planting sesame seed and soybean, Lord willing. We are working with our Mozambican brothers and sisters to help them help themselves. Pictures are the site of old well that we will repair and the road to Eden which is being repaired by hand almost daily.
