Message from Jeff:
I volunteered to come here to teach mechanics at an orphanage. My commitment was for one year, so we shall see how things are going come June or so. The work permit is for 2 years, so I may decide to return for a second year. The name of the Orphanage is Eden Valley Foster Care Mission. So much of my time is taken with classes and class preparation. The orphanage was started because the director saw a great need to help provide opportunities for the many children who had lost parents to the AIDS epidemic. Here is a link to a video that describes some about the operation:
