It Get's Better!!! For two
years we have been faced with the need to build sufficient dormitories for our
Mae La Noi Children's Home. 100 children, mostly teenagers by now, are cramped
in a facility never intended to be a children's dormitory. The project was put
on hold because of the economic crunch. After much thought and prayer, we
decided to launch this project in 2010. I reasoned with the Lord, "In
spite of the economic conditions, these kids need room to live!" Our
numbers were even increasing at this home as several of the children rescued in
2009 ended up being placed there. It was not a "small deal" to
consider as the project has a $180,000.00 price tag on it. One week after
making the decision to "go for it" we were contacted by a party
wanting to invest in an orphanage in Thailand. This was a total stranger from Korea referred to us by a friend in Thailand. I am glad that God knows our address!
We Are Already Two Thirds of the Way There....
After researching our
ministry and flying in from Korea to see the work first hand, our "new friend" was impressed with the
project and has invested $102,000.00 towards the completion. We have $18,000.00
in savings bringing us to $120,000.00 of the total amount needed for this
project. We need to raise the additional $60,000.00 within six months. This project
will include two buildings with dorms rooms for the children, staff housing, toilets
and showers. Total living space 9,000 sq. ft... It will also enable us to meet
the government regulation for foundations to provide separate buildings for the
boys and the girls. Upon completion, we will have room to expand to 240
children at this facility.
checked my email this morning just to be sure.... No news yet that the 60K had come in! We are
in "Faith and Patience Mode" on this one!
We pray these testimonies have been an inspiration for you to believe
God in spite of circumstances. We also invite you to prayerfully consider helping us
with the Dormitory Project. Together we will see this project completed for the
Glory of God.
Thank you for helping us to help the children.
Bless You Richly!
