Have you ever made your request known to God with a hint of doubt, fear or worry? Have you ever prayed, believing God would answer, yet you were concerned about the naysayers, complainers and doubters? If not keep living, as Grandma would say.
In all honesty, these are just two, of many thoughts, that lingered in the back of our minds as we attempted (for over a year) to raise funds to Rebuild the Nursery, in Isiolo. But God! As usual, he showed himself mighty and strong. Once again, he reiterated our two ministry scriptures.
- you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. Isaish 58:12b
2. so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it. Isaiah 41:20
With these two words of confirmation etched in our hearts, we appreciate those who prayed for the success of the fundraiser! THANK YOU! We are especially thankful for the 23 individuals who GAVE, for the sake of the children, in Isiolo! THANK YOU!
With a final goal of $3,000, a total of $3,370 was donated, in slightly under two months! You could say we are tickled pink, or purple, since one of us doesn't like pink. LOL!
Demolition begins TODAY! The contractor is set to tear down the old building today. By Wednesday, he will restore the foundation and prepare to REBUILD. Ain't that good news!! The "plan" is to have the building completed on Friday, Dec. 4th. We solicit your prayers for:
- a successful demolition, without injury to the workers
- the safety of all involved during the rebuild
- the rebuild to be completed on schedule, within the agreed upon budget
- a standard of excellence in all things
Special thanks to Ron and Juanita Lewis. God touched their hearts to launch the fundraiser, after reading about the need for a new nursery, for the safety of the children and all for His glory! THANK YOU!
Stay tuned for updates and photos of the completed building!
