Update

My hands are pretty full right now with work.  I have 2 engines apart a cylinder that is from a 207 in Africa in need of repairs and I am still painted whatever is needed whenever it is needed.
 Andy and I have begun the process of getting all the individual pieces of the Lance 540 engine ready for assembly.  This entails, inspecting, cleaning, painting and measuring.  We would have begun the assembly by now but the engine bearings have not arrived yet, though they should be here soon.  Andy is an apprentice with Missionary Aviation Fellowship U.K. and is from Scotland.  He should be finished with his apprenticeship next fall.
 Chuck, Geoff and I worked yesterday and today getting the stripes painted on these various pieces of the MAF 206.  Next, the fuselage  will be rolled in and masked for paint.  The paint scheme we are doing is the new MAF International paint scheme and will be the new standard that all the MAF planes will be painted to.
Last weekend we went to the Roscoe Village candle lighting ceremony.  We sang carols, heard stories and drank cider.  The weather was very pleasant for being outside.

Thanks for checking in on us and that you for praying,  Josh
