Electricity at last...

Three years and three months later we are excited to share with you the great news that the village we live in, Las Lomitas, now has electricity.  We are officially connected to the national electrical grid.
There are only a few houses out of the 61 in our village that have yet to be connected.  No one is wasting time.  Many of you have followed this story over the past few years.  It has had it´s ups and downs, but it is all worth it now.  We think 3 years is a long time to wait, but many people have lived in Las Lomitas their whole lives without electricity.  The project has been in process for 8 years now.  Needless to say, everyone is excited and we all feel like it is a completely different village.  Please keep the pros and cons that electricity brings in your prayers.  Pray for us to be good examples and walk along side of our friends as they experience this new life.

Here are a few photos for you to see the changes that have taken place in our home...

Our favorite item - hot water in the shower!
Lights in every room and outside on the porch and carport!
Light switches!
Our second favorite item, a FRIG! (we have had the gas stove for a while now)
Breaker box in the shed.
We can charge our phones and other items!
