Male RAs

School starts back up in a few weeks, and we are in desperate need of at least 2 quality guys to come on staff as RAs in the boys dorms. We have 3 male dorms full of teenage guys needing role models (as well as someone to do their cooking, cleaning, laundry, driving, help with homework, overseeing their chores, having fun with, etc).

Right now each of the dorms only has 1 returning male RA and 1 female RA. While us ladies are perfectly capable to do the work of the job, it would be a disservice to the boys to have a bunch of women raising them. They need men to teach them how to be men!

Please help me spread the word. Right now it's just me and Timmy as RAs for the 28 Men of Maug, and that just isn't gonna cut it! Last year they had 4 RAs and were still running ragged a lot of the time.

If you'd like to know more, send me an email or check out BFA's website

Don't you want to be a part of this? :)

And here's an update on the construction of the dorm. Still a ton or work to be done- maybe more than is finished. Here are some pictures:

The TV Room / My Temporary Bedroom & Workout Room

Michelle has been missing having Sky TV to watch American news. After weeks of fighting for it, the satellite showed up. I thought the name was appropriate.

These are the "stairs" to the top floor

New dishwasher (...cute)

The new kitchen. Check out how HUGE the hood is (the entire suspended unit)!

The scaffolding area will hopefully be a dining room within the next few weeks.

Bathroom full of stuff until the floor is laid everywhere else

And, finally, the difference between watching a puppy (Jersey, Palm dorm pup) and a dog (Maggie, Maug dorm boss):

Hi, My name is...


The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

There is so much work to be done here and very few workers. I just hit the pause button on the overwhelming spiral of events, got some Asia Wok 33a and sang this song a few times. And now Carol and I are going to pray for some more workers.
