Payton Missionary House Tour

Hello again!

As I promised in my last blog post, The Abaana’s Hope Guest House Tour, here is the tour of the third missionary home. The future home of the Payton family!

Everyday these homes change, it is a joy to watch the progress knowing what these houses will mean for the future of Abaana’s Hope and the missionary families. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

Abaana’s Hope Guest House Tour

Greetings Everyone!

We hope you enjoy this {rough} tour of the Abaana’s Hope Guest House. I will be posting a tour of the third missionary home within the next day, so stay tuned to view the Payton’s House!

Chase and I took this video several days ago and in the time it took me to edit and post this video, the house now has a roof! Pictures to follow soon!

Thank you again to everyone who has donated to make this guest house a reality! If you have been on an AH mission team you already realize the value of not having to drive back and forth to town everyday. If you have not been on a team to serve at AH, come join the fun and you will get to see what it is all about. I promise, you will quickly learn what a blessing this guest house is going to be to our friends at AH and to all team members. Also, thank you for your continued prayers as we minister to our workers and for their safety as they complete these houses.


Inside the Abaana’s Hope Chicken House

Our Abaana’s Hope Farm Manger, Winnie, is excited to share our chicken house is being renovated! It is turning into a new home for about 200 laying hens!

Please ignore my amateur videographer skills with my super professional Iphone 4s! 😉

From Winnie-“Hello, I am Winnie, the farm manger at Abaana’s Hope. Right now, we are in the poultry house and we are constructing a brooder. We will keep the chicks in the brooder for one month. We are going to keep them in the brooder [here] until the chicks have well developed wings. Then we can remove them from the brooder. So, right now we are creating a brooder to create enough warmth and the suitable amount of temperature that the chicks might need.

On the ground [here it] is the bedding for the chicken, made of rice. This is a rice house.

We are going to put 200 chicks in this house. They will produce 6 trays of eggs a day. This will meet the needs of the community.

Inside our brooder [here] we are going to provide a source of heat and a drinker for drinking water. Also, we are going to spread the newspaper inside the brooder. So that we can put the food for the chicken. The chicks will feed from the brooder here and at the same time they will be drinking water. And also we shall be providing heat, suitable temperature until they have grown their wings.”

Don’t you just love her accent! 🙂 In the past few years we have learned the community likes to eat eggs, but hardly anyone sells eggs. Everyone prefers to raise chickens, rather than use their eggs for eating. We are excited to provide the community with an actual egg supplier, and I am so thankful we will not have to drive 45 minutes into town to get eggs!
