Praise God! - a lot of great work has been done at CDLA over the past few months. These picture show the initial stages of the next big project: building the concrete and steel "podium" that will serve as the ceiling of the ground level and the floor of the second (or middle) level. The second and third levels will be a wood frame design that will be built on top of the podium. The other pix are of the new parking area/bb court above the new storage bunker and down the hill from the security house. Contact us if you'd like to bring down a team after the sheltering! - Andy Wilson ... See MoreSee Less

Praise God! Over the past several months we've made dramatic progress in the construction of the CDLA Children's Home. For team members from the various churches that are partnering with us: we've finished the 17' x 54' storage bunker (downhill from the security house), the 36' x 54' parking pad above it (and driveway access) and the stairs and retaining walls to the NE of the main structure. Next up: the concrete and steel 'podium' that will be the roof of the bottom level and the floor of the middle level. New partners are welcome! ... See MoreSee Less

Pouring the cement parking pad and prepped for pouring the driveway.Pouring cement for the parking pad in the "back yard". A driveway will soon be poured so the current residents can park next to their home.
This will be the main parking for staff and visitors. It is conveniently located near the entrance to the kitchen of the orphanage. ... See MoreSee Less

Somebody forgot to turn on the AC today, but we're still making good progress! The drainpipe has been rerouted, the permanent steps have been poured down to the tool garage, and once we finish the block on the Eastern wall, we'll backfill and pour the basketball court/parking lot and driveway in the next 2-3 weeks. Anybody want to come down and help move that pile of ruble at the bottom of the stairs, hit me up! Could use your help. ... See MoreSee Less

A huge thank you to the team from La Jolla Pres!!A team from La Jolla Presbyterian Church came for the day to serve at Casa de Los Angeles orphanage. They moved a lot of dirt, dug trenches for pipes, and more! Great job! Thank you so much for serving in this way! ... See MoreSee Less
Hey Friends of Casa de Los Angeles,
Hope all is well. Here are some firmer details for the super easy, super fun, one-day orphanage build trip.
We’re going to go down to Rosarito for the day on Saturday, June 29th and do some work to move this project along. Specifically, we are going to be jack-hammering some rock to make a walkway from the main orphanage building site to the new giant tool garage we just finished; and clearing and grading the hill in preparation for a driveway down to the coming basketball court.
Here’s the schedule we’re thinking:
7am Meet at La Jolla Pres
8am Ron Struska’s house in Rosarito, MX (there’s a possibility that some Mexican friends will meet us there)
8:30am Get to the CDLA site
12:30pm Lunch at the site
4:30/5pm stop working
5:30pm best taco’s you’ve ever had
±7pm get to the border
±9:30pm get back to La Jolla
Cost is buy your own tacos for dinner - maybe $5
and if you are able to kick in $20 for gas/insurance/van rental that would be awesome, but not a deal breaker.
It is going to be a wonderful day of fun, taco’s and Kingdom building work. I’m personally looking forward to working with you. If you’d like to invite family or friends that’s awesome, but if you could let me know who’s coming it would be super helpful with transportation.
