One year ago I received the news that our little boy, Habakkuk,died of cholera in his village, Kpeletayama, in Liberia. He was 2 1/2 yrs old and we planned on adopting him. Today, because of the love and support of friends, there is a clean water well in that village.This
summer, no children are dying of water contamination diseases. So, our sorrow is obvious, I still ache for the little boy I never knew, and yet, I have joy that his life changed a village. His life brought hope to his community; 500 people in his village and surrounding areas benefit from this well. Habakkuk's Well has an inscription dedicating it in memory of Habakkuk. However, no one in the village can read it since everyone is illiterate. But, this "village with nothing" now has a future. Plans are being made to bring a school to the village. First, a "real" house needs to be built since not many educated people are willing to live in a mud and thatch house. The house will cost about $3500. Next, we will raise support to pay the teacher and purchase curriculum. School will be outside under a pole and leave structure.

Please write Kpeletayama village school
in the memo. Also please pray for us as we consider more options regarding adoption. Liberia continues to be close. There is no way of knowing how long it will remained closed. We currently sponsor two boys, Michael and Varney, that we would very much like to adopt. We continue to pray for God's will for our boys. And, it may be for them to be our kids that grow up in Liberia. In light of that, we are open to other adoption options. If another match was found, such as through WI special needs/foster care adoption, we would seriously consider it. This process has been so painful for me, as some of you know. Pray for wisdom and peace for our family as we look for what God has ahead for us. Thank you for your love and interest in our journey, Peggy Varney and Michael
