The old schoolhouse where the Bible is now taught.
This woodstove in the hallway is the only source of heat for the whole building. Needless to say, the rooms are not warm at all.
This is the “drinking fountain”, or should I say “drinking bucket”? Two reusable cups are for all the boys.
Outhouse. Yep, no indoor facilities.
One of the fixed-up rooms. Notice the insufficient number of desks (some of them have boards instead of desk tops) and many boys being in their coats because of the cold.
The other fixed-up classroom is packed, too. It’s not warm either.
This room could seat 20+ boys if fixed up.
It even has desk frames for 16 students. They just need desk tops.
Sashko and Yurko’s class: 18 boys cramped into a tiny SS classroom at the local Baptist church (Sashko in the foreground in glasses and Yurko center back reading over his test).
Lunchtime in the fellowship hall of the local Baptist church.
Yura challenging a combined class to get involved in Bible translation in the main auditorium of the local Baptist church.
