The roof is leaking and the wind is howling !

The roof is leaking and the wind is howling.  These are words from Phil Collins back in 1981.  

Vlad has been working with the Tokmok Baby orphanage to figure out what to do because Their roof is leaking and the wind is howling.  Unfortunately it is a little more then just a patch .. that was the last 30 years , now there needs to be a lot more extensive work. But more then just the roof  , there are no eaves troughs on the buildings and there is a lot of repairs every year on the building foundations because of the water.  The quotes just came in and we will need to raise $1700 for the roof repairs and the eaves troughs. 

I know that this is a difficult time to be taking on something like this , but we know that the finances do not dictate the needs , but the needs dictate the finances, and right now we are dictating $1700 !

Over the years we have done many renovations on the buildings there, and a lot of those problems are a result of water damage .  Here are a few before and after photos of the past repairs , if you look you will see all of them have foundation problems.  The cement and mud buildings are porous , then the freezing temperatures cause the water to freeze and cause the bricks to crumble. 

I think the best time to do this would have been last year, but the next best time would be right  NOW..

We are going to go ahead and order the materials to get this started , and pray for the funds to come in quickly.. If you would like to be a part of this blessing, you can donate at the top right side of the blog ... Thank you so much  

Kamala and her coworker did the shopping for the homeless shelter today and will deliver in the morning. 

The coal deliveries went late into the night 

They also went to get the gas stove for Svetly Put orphanage , but the one they wanted was not available any more so they will talk to the orphanage and try again tomorrow.
