We went over and worked in the church cleaning for a while. Then later in the day we took a wheelchair up to a man in the nearby village of Sesinci. This family is very poor, I mean poorer than you can ever imagine. They get about $50.00 a month on which to live. Even here, that is nothing. The roof of their home on one side has caved in and they had to just shut the door and move out of that room. The man has had one leg cut off and had a wheelchair that was very narrow. He had to remove the arms and then his thighs sat on the wheels which didn't allow him to move the wheels to roll around. When we gave him the wheelchair, he was like a little boy with a new toy and so excited. It makes us wish that the church could repair their house, but the humanitarian funds only pay for projects that benefit a group. We may try to figure out a way to do something as a district to help fix the roof.

He's a teacher and a very good man

It was comical because the sidewalk was half mud
