We Need Your Help! This Mountain is Ready to MOVE!

Friends we need your help!!  

 If you need to catch up with our GO Team projects simply look back at the last post! 
After publishing the last post a very unexpected thing happened which was incredible!

What seemed like a mountain of needs, seemingly impossible in the physical world,
 is suddenly 
- and might I add really close to starting time..... 


Those eyes pierce my soul - yes, honey you're home is coming!

WE will build the home for you precious one!

A friend of aplacecalledsimplicity and IVO sent me us a fb message 
asking if I could talk with her husband.  They had been praying about 
what ministry they should bless with a gift. 
They kept coming back to IVO.   

I had no expectation of what came next!   

The husband shared with me that as they prayed they felt the Lord was leading them 
to make a matching gift donation to IVO.  
A very, very generous gift I might add! 

This has never happened before -
(I thought it only happened on the radio pledge drives)!  

Their generosity has blown me away. 
They've offered a total  gift of $12,500 as a matching gift.  

It breaks down as follows:

The Home for the orphans at "The Home of Praise":   $9000

The Rabbit House: $1,000

Amos is always a hard worker and you can bet he'll be working next to me again!

The Special Project: $1,000 

The Legacy Conference:  $1,000

Isn't that amazing?  

This isn't a scheme - it's a gift by someone who has been blessed to be a blessing 
If you've been thinking about donating to any of the above projects, 
then now is the time! 

Everyone In!  

Everyone doing something and this mountain is history!

Together, this summer, let's do the IVO version of an Extreme Home Makeover!   

No amount is too small!

Just think, each donation will be matched.

So if you donate $5.00 to the Projects,
actually $10.00 will be donated.

How cool is that??  

Let's do this together!

You can donate at our website:


there is even a donation button on our Facebook page here

As always, 100% of each donation go directly 
to serve the orphans.

God Bless you,  Together this Mountain can be removed!

IT"S TIME - We Need Your Help!

She's been waiting!

Several years ago we met this wonderful young lady whose name is Praise.  She loves the Lord, loves to sing, and her smile is contagious  She calls me dad and her children call me BIG JAJA.  Now I'm not that big, but I love it anyway.  She loves the Lord and loves the orphans that God has placed in her care.

She cares for and loves 26 children as her own on a little plot of land in the bush of Uganda.  When we built a rain harvesting system we realized the home the children lived in was not safe as it almost gave way with a simple ladder propped against it.  Something had to be done.

At that moment I realized IVO must build a dorm for these precious children.

Like these that Emma is hugging.

The children have been sick so many times that it is difficult to keep track.  We have paid for having jiggers removed from their feet.  And many of the children have had rats bite their feet with one child actually losing a finger. (this is not an exaggeration but a reality that they have had to live with).

 They desperately need a safe  home.   But we need your help! 

International Voice of the Orphan is taking the challenge to build a family home for the children of Praise.  We are taking it on because we believe in Praise and love the children.

However we can't do it without your partnership.  We have donations in hand of around $4000 but we need an additional $20,000 to $25,000 to complete the project.

We will build only as the money comes in and realize it may take over a year to build, but it will get built!

I love holding and hugging and they know it!

Isn't he precious, he was given medical attention by a generous donor and is one of Praise's children!


We will be holding another basketball camp for the boys at A Perfect Injustice but this time inviting others to join as an outreach to the community!  Pray that children receive Christ!


David and Abby have let Emma know they would like to build a rabbit house to begin a business for the older boys.  Cost - roughly $2500 - yes they are big houses, but will provide food and revenue for the boys and the home.  This is an investment that will keep on giving.


We will be holding a Legacy Leadership Conference in Kampala with my denomination.   The denomination has awarded us a $20,000 grant but only as matching funds to raise up and train leaders in Eastern Africa.  If you have a heart for multiplication both in training and in souls, this is the place to invest.  You won't know the exponential return but I guarantee you will see it in heaven!


We will be working on a special project, not quite ready to be announced, but you will love it.  If you'd like to give to the "Special Project" just note it in your contribution.  Needs are about $5000.

God Bless you!

As you can see the needs are enormous.  Please do not ever think your contribution is insignificant!

Everyone doing something and we can take this mountain!
