Diospi Suyana School – Furniture Production

The school is making progress.  We are less than one month away from the first day of classes.  I have not walked by recently to see how things are progressing, but it seems like every day the buildings change in appearance as the disorganization of construction reveals itself to be part of the plan of God for this school as chaos turns to order.  However, there is still a lot to do.  Please keep us in your prayers, especially the leaders and teachers of the school as they prepare for the upcoming first year of classes.  Please remember our family as Allison will start teaching, and this change in schedule is sure to cause some stress in the beginning as we lose some of the comfort of having Allison at home full-time.  Here is a post from the Diospi Suyana Hospital website.

Furniture production at full speed

A week ago, he arrived in Curahuasi. The next morning, the German carpenter is in the workshop, ready to work. For a month, Mr. Burkhard Jochum will construct furniture voluntarily. Over 400 pieces of furniture ranging in size from very small to very large must be made in the coming weeks for Diospi-Suyana School.

His wife, Carolina, has helped with translation work for the Diospi Suyana website. His father-in-law helps us again and again with political contacts as he is a member of the Congress in Peru. So the whole family is working hard, writing, and communicating for Diospi Suyana. This assuredly is balanced and selfless example.
