We are expecting a bus load of people to help after 10am because in Nepal life begins at 10am.
We are expecting to be off line for a couple of days due to the change in location and the need to set up the Internet and Wifi in the new place.
Going from one floor to four floors is a bit of a leap of faith but there is every indication that we will need the extra space to accommodate the growing number of teams who have expressed interest in coming later this year. We pray that the extra use will defray the extra cost.
The Bottom floor of the new Guesthouse will be the Vocational Training facility and will also provide a cafe for guests.
A Young couple from the church will be married soon and will move into one room to be the caretakers.
There is enough ground to enable the Sychar ladies to cultivate vegetables. The Half-way house is only 5 minutes walk away.
The Vocation Training has already commenced at the half-way house and Tusal hostel and the equipment from both these venues will be moved during February.
It is an exciting new phase for the ministry and one which we believe will bear much fruit leading into sustainable Micro businesses.
The new facility will be called 'Transformation Guesthouse' and the likewise the Voc. Ed Centre will be "Transformation Vocation Training Centre" Raju has really caught onto the concept of Transformation.
