our quality time remembered (73k image)
It was a great gathering indeed last night at our place in Singapore. 16 of Singaporean university students were making a trip to our orphanage and doing their school projects both inside the orphanage and out side. At the orphanage we did some eductional matters with both the orphans and the school children of the vilagers. It was a great experience for every one and a time that I personally can treasure it for life. The fellowship that we were having was great and the bonding is solid until this time.
We wish that we can do it again some time soon. We were having a simple BBQ night by the swimming pool last night. No music or anything fancy but our conversation were really making us so happy.
I shared the happy moment with my wife and she was envious when I told her what has been happening last night. Peggy is in Timor doing all the hard work for us , managing the orphanage as usual. ,We made a big change with our plan on how to build the rooms extention for the orphanage children. We are palnning to build a 20x6 Meters room each for the boys and the girl beside the class room . The class room will be made smaller on its width , instead of 10x10 , we will be building it as a 6x10 meters.
I will be going to the orphange after arriving from my LA flight which is on April 8th. I wil be there till the 30th. Any of you who are willing to come please let me know. At the moment I will be having our condominium's manager Edward Lim with us for 1 week in Timor during my stay . Some more friends are still needing their confirmation for their leave and to be able to come with me next month.
The little orphans are progressing well with their English language training and thier schooling matters. Time and care are what we have for them and it is up to them to excell well or not in school or any educational matters. with our constant guidance and care we are sure that we can do it.

I will be going to the orphanage from April 9th for 3 weeks. It won't be a nice and easy trip but there will be some works that we have to do it and the best we could. We will do the ground breaking for the newly proposed rooms for the orphans and a common room . Within 3 weeks we can only do the foundation , some up wards structures and making the doors and windows. The doors and windowns must be made prior to the installation. You may have some hands on both on the foundation works or some carpentering matter. You can also help us to mix the cement etc ( basically we will do every thing from scratch). If the weather is too hot during the day , we might be doing it during the night in exchange for th etime lost during the day time. If you are coming for the painting job , it will be after 4 or even 5 months time. we are planning to make 5 by 6 or 6 by 6M for each rooms and a 10 by 10 M for the common room. If you want to help out on looking after the children its ok too. If you want to cook for me , I will be more than happy to eat your cooking. These 2 rooms are quite urgently to be made as the children are rather growing faster by days. From a baby to 4 or 5 years old the growth is quite slow but from there on the growth will be faster as the children are becoming more active and able to eat more . I hope that we can get the building finished sooner that what we have planned it. Lets make our hands dirty and make some sweat for this up coming projects.

vitaminafterbreakfast (127k image)
Indeed health is our prime concern , especially during every rainy season where flu is prone to spread out at this region. Everyday after breakfast and a glass of milk my father in law is doing his routine task of giving the orphans vitamin. We are hoping that a complete diet with this extra vitamin daily will be able to guarantee a good growth for our orphans. Anyway this particular vitamin being given was a gift from aunty Jeanne Pattikawa from Los Angeles. She gave it to me when I was there during my night stop. Thank you the aunty Jeanne ( your gift is really reaching them and helping them to grow healthy). Some other vitamins are given too like vitamin C etc.
The orphanage is blessed with a good harvest of corn now. The corn are so sweet as if we barbeque them right after being harvested from it's tree. I wish I have the picture to show you All (I was just being told by my father in law). I wish that I can be there and helping them to harvest the corn. Even though I am currently in New York I can imagine seeing the little ones eating our own corn freshly. I am glad that we plant them timely and the blessing of being given enough rain is enabling us to have a good harvest. Praise The Lord .
