PET MO-Columbia update 1/30/12

*** Production Report: Goal: 2012 in 2012. 40 a week. Goal to date: > 160.
Production 166. Thanks to Roger and his great shop crew.

*** A story/report: Seven or so years ago a couple gave the donation
($30,000 then) that made it possible for 20 families who were living in
dirt-floored hovels in Nicaragua to build themselves new homes in a new
village– a program of Rainbow Network, a PET Partner. Three years after
it was built I visited the village and saw a lovely village developing.
They had obvious pride in the care of their homes. Gardens and orchards
had developed, Families now lived in pride, comfort and dignity.

Today I received a report from a person who recently visited that
village. He wrote to the donor and sent photos: “This village is the one
your family funded. It is one of the most well established ones I was able
to visit, and the work you have helped start is evident. The government is
also stepping up and building a community center in the village.” He
reports additions are being built onto homes, and that one lady operates a
small store out of her home. “She is so thankful to be a part of Rainbow.”

The homeowners are paying the cost of their homes at $5 to $10 a month,
and that money will go to build more homes.

***************************************

*** Two boxes of lower chain guards arrived from Matt Stanton in IL. Matt
is another of those faithful donors who regularly provides needed parts.

*** Steve Baima just called in to say that he will this afternoon pick up
a load of painted parts at Orschlens, in Moberly. Orschelns is a major
production center that free of charge powder paints tens of thousands
of parts for us each year.

*** PET is looking for a local person to write simple assembly
instructions for the Pull PET. You will also need to take a few pictures
to include in the instructions. If you are interested, you can contact
Susan Williams at susanwilliamspet@gmail.com
