Greetings from Todd Ellingson in Rwanda for August 2010

We are very excited that the nursery walls are almost done. Construction started again after a generous donor gave us a gift a month ago. The new nursery is located attached to the girl's dorm. The current nursery is in the boy's dorm and is crowded with eight children and three mamas.

The boys play marbles almost every day.
