Building A tribal house

by jill sanders

The first step to church planting is actually moving into the tribe and building our house. Our guys have been busy cutting down trees, and now they are actually milling the trees into lumber.

 Jack is cutting 2x3s with the turbo saw from a section of one of the huge pine trees the Wantakians gave us.

The work is hard, but it's going to save a lot of money. For the rest of the stuff like plywood, windows, cabinets, etc., we will have to buy them in country, drive them to our helicopter shuttle point, and chopper them out to Wantakia. Our projected amount to do all of this is $30,077. It seems like a lot of money to raise, but we KNOW the Lord will do it! We are excited to see who He's going to use!  

Please be praying:

  • For safety as our guys use the saw mill

  • For their health (eating tribal food & living in a tribal house in the jungle)

  • For us moms, as we rely on the Lord minute by minute to raise our kids alone while daddy's not home
  • For the entire amount to be raised for our house

Click here to give! And please let us know what specific item you are giving towards...so we can write your name on the item in our home (ex: if you buy a sheet of plywood, we will write your name on it so we can look at it every day!!)

Thanks for reaching the Wantakians with us!
