Gerson and Vonny
It was a great evening when these two person came to us and broke the news that they have done their best on their studies and succeeded . Praise The Lord .
Gerson was telling us that he will be sword as a doctor on October 14th 20016 while Vonny will be having her graduation on October 19th 2016. The great news were certainly making us so happy and surely up lifting the morals of those who wants to do well in school. Peggy and I were so boosted too upon doing more and better for the brighter future of the CHILDREN . Praise The Lord for All being made good.
Gerson parents were passed away when he was 4 years old . He came to us when he was just finished the primary school. His older brother told us that he and the rest of his family were unable to support Gerson’s further study and it was said to be so difficult to even just having the daily needs to be satisfied . For that reason Gerson join the Roslin orphanage.
It was through the thick and thin and the togetherness we made it to this glorious day.
We are so thankful for The Lord”s blessings and Peggy’s efforts since the year 2000 on managing Roslin 24 hours a day without any substitute ( while I am flying and while our three children were in school)
At the sworn day
Posing with those who are staying at the Roslin living lab and especially my father in law , Cornelis lakusa , who was the person teaching the Roslin kids about math , chemistry and all science subjects since 2002 till 2011 . He is 86 now and been non active since few years ago.

Peggy was with Vonny during her graduation ceremony. She did well as she is in the top ten . We are so happy that a much brighter future will be with her as she has something to cling on. If 8 years ago she was unable to dream big things , she is now able to do so , Praise The Lord indeed. We are so blessed as the efforts are boosted with the good result and much better future for Vonny are enhanced.
LIFE IS GOOD , PLEASE BE IN IT
The Lucas family
It was so great to have The Lucas family at Roslin from June 18th to June 25th 2016. All the way from Salem , Oregon , USA , The lucas family came to Roslin. On this trip , Mr Dennis Mathew Lucas came to Roslin accompanied by Mrs Tammy Marie Lucas , daughter Abigail Corrie Lucas , Elisabeth Grace Lucas and Olivia Eve Lucas . What a solid first class team indeed.
It was such a wonderful visit as they were adding up the needed man power to do so many things of at the orphanage and other Roslin’s venues, including the hardy routines of the day to day things at Roslin , some land clearing, paving the path at the orphanage and removing rocks.
Thank you very much to The Lucas family , with your participations the rocky soil at Roslin’s home stay has been made into a fantastic plating area and the colour has been changed with so much greenery.
The pictures below is the before and after the land clearing
from rock soil into a productive soil within 2 months
One of the most difficult part is to relocate these rocks
Tilting the soil must be done manually as the tractors will be damaged by the hidden rocks
By doing things together we can achieve more
Rice husks for making the special media for planting
All must work including Peggy
Some of the rocks are too big and we cannot remove them
TOGETHER WITH ALL CHILDREN ARE ALWAYS READY TO DO THE HARD WORK
PLANTING IS SO EXCITING
WE CAN HAVE NEW HOPES DAILY AND EAGERLY WANTED TO SEE NEW THINGS AS THE DAY IS PROGRESSING
LIFE IS GOOD , BE IN IT
