Last Tuesday, our friends Ted and Virginia, took us out to the Smile House project so we could take pictures. The builders are really going to town. They are doing an excellent job and have the front section almost built. They are raising the roof a little more than a meter. You can see this in the pictures. It is always great to see the progress.

We just found out that we have to buy a transformer for electricity and it is needed ASAP. It will cost almost $11,000. The funds for the building hopefully will pay for a roof. If you have any ideas of how we can get funding or if you feel inspired to help, please write to me at or Smile Alliance International at P. O. Box 240 Cle Elum, WA 98922.
