A Fresh Coat

We are painting the youth center this week, trying to add a more youthful feel to the pale yellow walls and dark green doors/windows. I’ve been calling it a Sprite can. We ended up going with one dark orange orange wall and the others in different shades of gray, and it’s made a huge difference. Our painting has been the talk of the neighborhood, with folks dropping by each day to check it out.


  1. What a great picture of the kids so attentively watching! :) Looking forward to seeing the end results. I'm sure you'll get some new people in just to see what's going on and then maybe they'll keep coming back! Who painted the nice picture? Have a great weekend!

  2. Actually, it was Marion and Jamie Lee who donated that picture. I wrote a blog post about them last month, I think. They are an INCREDIBLE couple in Ciudad del Este, who do that sort of stuff as part of their ministry....

  3. Lookin' good Christie! It's amazing what a little splash of color will do to a wall!
