|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!|
AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!
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!
AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!!
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.
AND THAT'S NOT ALL!!!
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!
AND THAT'S NOT ALL:
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!
