gullyCropsHinrik and Gully, who lead the work of ABC in Burkina Faso, have arrived in Iceland to spend Christmas with family and friends. It has been a busy time in Burkina Faso - projects are moving in the right direction.

The new dining hall and the new school building where officially opened this semester. These two buildings where built for money donated by the company Atorka Group in Iceland. Past spring a very successful water drilling took place. Now there is water being pumped up next to the dining hall. The next important project is to have a wall around the property to stop trespassing of others. Sometimes people drive whole herds of cows across. This year the school staff had permission to grow vegetables on the school property and that has been a success.

The children in the school are vibrant and joyful. A nurse comes for a visit to attend to wounds that many of the children had. School outfits will soon be ready for all of the children.
