JUST MERCY bought a large garden plot and began planting to help provide food for the mission and people of the surrounding area. Besides vegetables we have planted 40 lime trees, 10 grapefruit trees, 20 sweet orange trees, 10 “cherry” trees (different than ours), AND 288 banana trees!! The food is so desperately needed! A solar dehydrator was built in the shop for a young man who is trying to start a business drying mangoes. The first prototype of a fish habitat was built with the goal of trying to increase the fish population in the bay that has been so depleted. Another trip to Janou was made and we saw more roofs being installed! Bill made another visit to the school at Chapelle. The weekly food distributions to the old folks continue. So do the confrontations with darkness!
