They're back! Our favourite youth group is back! Last year they came to Ancla and completely amazed us at how hard they worked. In 5 short days they erected our first children's home. Guess what they are doing this year? You guessed it, they are erecting the second one! Only catch is, we have to erect the house in 4 days because this week we celebrate good Friday and the group will not be working that day.
We are so impressed with this group. They are all a real blessing to us. Such nice kids. Get this, the youth leader once again asked me not to hand out the WIFI password to the group. How many teens do you know that would volunteer their time knowing that they would have to give up their phones for a week. I can't think of too many. This is just one of the small things that make this group special.
We are pleased that they are here. Sometimes it may seem that all the work all we do is work on these missions trips, but their is great fruit to our labour. Although we are working physically building buildings, we are constructing home where healing and transformation will take place for many years to come. We have already seen huge growth in our children, I can't wait to see how much they will grow once they are in their new home! All these young people have left there hand print at Ancla! Your work and sacrifice allows us to do what we do here!
Off to Work, Ancla's second Children's Home is underway!
As we have shared in the past, At Ancla we are committed to rebuilding a family environment. We believe that by provided a home setting for the children that they will find healing through the love and compassion that they receive. This group of you has come here on a work trip, and yes primarily they are building but from the fruits of their labour we can do a better job at working with the children. Today it may seem like their efforts are all in concrete work and construction materials, but the reality is that the homes that these youth are building will house many children for years to come and inside these walls healing and transformation will be taking place. How amazing is God! That He can use all of us to work according to His will! What an honour to serve Him!
