Here we are at my home for the next week (above). This is the Radio Station (below) about 1 1/2 hours from Santa Cruz - it is near the town of Pailon. Jake & Dorothy Fehr mission is running this radio station to bring the Gospel to the Mennonite and Spanish people with both Spanish and German speaking programs. I believe Dorothy does an hour on Sunday afternoon with an English program as well. I was so blessed being here. It was a beautiful place to stay - the grounds were gorgeous. There was a mission team from Manitoba staying here at the same time that I was. They were helping Dave Janzen build a new church for the Mennonites that leave the colonies. Some land had been purchased where homes will be built with Habitat for Humanity for Mennonite families that leave the colonies as well.
Here is the current church that Dave & Lisa Janzen have started for those Mennonites that leave the colonies. They have had exciting growth in the church and are looking forward to having the new church built.
Below is the school where the Mennonite children attend. Each building is a classroom where they are educated - they also learn Spanish in these classes. It is simple and they are so happy. Lisa took me here before I ventured out to the colonies. I loved to see the children working and playing in their black and white uniforms. They were so precious! :-)
