Friends & Family,
It’s that time again. We are counting down until we fly out to Swaziland. We host a team of 14 people on November 4th. This trip will be similar to our last team trip as we will be ministering to the women, celebrating our graduating preschool students, visiting the children’s home and having a birthday celebration for all of the kids. We will also be visiting the new church sight, which is under construction, and have plans to help with the building project as well as get the feeding site operating. We are excited for the new opportunity to celebrate Bulandzeni’s first Christmas party. We are expecting between 200 and 300 children in attendance.
We are looking for cell phones for our rural pastors as well as a camera and video camera to receive more of the updates that we need. Please let us know if you can contribute to this need.
Currently, we need $500 monthly to operate the new feeding site and preschool. For $10.00 per month, you could feed 5 children. Please prayerfully consider this small sacrifice. If we all do our little part, it becomes the biggest blessing for these needy communities and has proven to draw people to Jesus.
A future need that we struggle to meet each year is that all school fees are due in January. This is always difficult because it falls after the holidays. We need a total of $2000.00 to cover all school fees for the entire school year for every one of our children in the orphan home. Without an education, our kids have no hope.
This Christmas would you consider giving the gift of education to a child in need? If we have 20 sponsors contribute $100 each, we can meet this vital need of an education!
In His Service,
