Dec 8th Wed

We have met with the Lahu, (Agapon is the chief, that's him in the above picture) and the engineer for the water project.  All is going well.  Tomorrow we will be going to the Rotary meeting to present the details to them.  They, the village,are really excited to have clean water to each of their houses, and very grateful too.

The community center is very nice and Mom and Linda are looking forward to setting up a teaching program for sewing.

 

We are going to Chiang Mai for 4 months.  One of the things we are going to do is oversee the drilling of a well, filtration system and supplying the homes with running water for a Lahu hilltribe village just outside of Chiang Mai.  Now that they have a community center (last year's project) we can consider getting involved in other ways too. 

Keep checking this spot for updates which we will be doing regularly.

 We have set up a blog so check us out at http://www.travellingsoles.blogspot.com

Hope you all have a great winter. We may not miss the freezing cold winter but we will certainly miss your warm friendship.

Linda and Gary Soles
