Bethany Team Returns to Las Mananitas
By Rod and Sherry Boyd

Bethany at Las MananitasBethany Christian Assembly, Everett, WA, played an important part last year in starting the second story of the secondary school building at Las Mananitas. Last year’s team laid half of the perimeter block around the lower two-thirds of the second story and contributed to roofing that section. The team returned in June to continue the perimeter blocking around the upper one-third of the building and to finish the science section, completing the interior walls and electrical work.

Bethany at Las MananitasHalf of the Bethany team, led by Dr. Pat Rees, also ministered in medical clinics during the first week. These clinics were offered in remote, poor areas, where people would not normally have medical care available. The facilities were borrowed—a local church or a half-finished home. At times team members themselves served as privacy curtains. The second week the ladies that made up the medical team joined the construction effort.

Bethany at Las MananitasThe team’s work in the science area was very important. The science area will provide two science labs as well as a combination office/storage area. The science lab, which currently shares a classroom with the typing room, will be moved to one of the new labs upstairs. The typing room will move to the other upstairs room temporarily. The secondary computer lab will be expanded to prepare for a new high school career focus in Business Technology. The high school currently offers only science. Young people must choose a career focus when they start 10th grade.

Bethany at Las MananitasBethany’s generous construction offering, combined with the previous offerings, allowed us to finish the entire roof over the secondary school building. A team from Calvary Temple Seattle will arrive soon to finish the perimeter blocking. No additional teams are anticipated. However, much work remains to be done. The library and office area floors must be poured and electrical installed. Windows must be installed in this area also. Lights, windows and hanging ceiling must be installed in the science area. Block dividers need to be installed in most of the second story. We need $10,000 for this next phase that needs to be completed within the next few months. If you are able to help, please send your offerings to:

The team connected with students and teachers. Members of the team participated in English classes. Students visited the team upstairs at the construction site. Associate Pastor Virgil Brown preached a simple message at the farewell service where the team and the national workers said their good-byes.

Thank you, Bethany Christian Assembly, Everett, WA, for your ongoing investment in the lives of children and young people at Las Mananitas.
