...continued from previous post...

Jim and Donna Larson arrived about two weeks ago from Minnesota.  They snowbird in Arizona in the same area that the Schulz's live and so they've become friends and the Larson's decided to join us for about 4 weeks working at KTC.  Jim and Dale have been working on an addition to 12, as well as doing drywall finishing in 5.  The ladies have been keeping the incinerator burning with leaves and sticks and construction waste, as well as doing some painting for me.

Amos and Emma Cole are missionary kids who where born and raised in Japan.  They came up from Tokyo for a couple of days to do some exterior painting for me and were able to finish 3 of the 4 sides of the language school so that we could tear down the scaffolding and have the place look nice for it's opening dedication last week.

Clemens is a man from Germany who has spent some time working here at KTC last year and has returned to help out again for 2 months this time.  He just arrived last week, understands English pretty well, and is a very willing worker to do anything that is asked.

I lose six of my workers in the next two weeks, but they will have put me in good shape to have things finished up before summer.

More updates to come soon.

  1. What a great post, Nate. It's so good for all of us (blog readers) to get a summary of what is going on. Obviously a lot is happening and It appears you feel good about the progress. It's interesting to see how you approach your assignment from a different perspective now. You are no longer Randy's assistant, now you are the project manager in charge of all the workers coming to help. As well you are doing much of the construction work yourself too. That's a big change. It reminds me of the infamous baseball player from the 70's & 80's, Pete Rose. When he got older he became the manager of the Reds, but also put himself in the games as a player... Manager/Player role. Anyway, I pray you have a super weekend and following week preparing for all the summer visitors coming to the camp. - Dad
