Home Stretch for the Children's Home Building!

It's all hands on deck for a final push to finish.

It's a flurry of activity indoors, outdoors, and all around.  The guys (and Magret when she isn't busy with school and children's ministry work) are painting and working on the septic and grounds.  We had a cave-in (no-one was hurt) with the original septic system that would have been (and eventually will be) big enough to support all of the (future) buildings in that area.  So, they have dug and installed a "plan B" manufactured system that will be adequate for this building and able to be disconnected, emptied, and moved to a different area of the property when the full system is finished.  We are focussing on the projects and furnishings that are necessary for us to get licensed by the Department of Health and registered with the Department of Social Development so that all the paperwork can be submitted by the end of August deadline.  The playground, exterior paint details, and exterior paving will be on the agenda during our Stateside fundraising trip.

Applications and Paperwork

Abby is busily working, with some local help from other children's home directors, to put together all the paperwork for registration with the Department of Social Development.  

Please pray for clarity, attention to detail, and excellent timing as she gathers the needed documents and puts them together in a simple and compelling way.  

Then, please pray for favor and quick approval as they are reviewed by the Department.


Last drops of paint are going on walls, ceilings, and beds.  Curtains are being cleaned and altered.  Next steps will be a deep cleaning job and moving in furniture!

Please pray for amazing deals and/or donations as we work quickly toward furnishing the building in time to be licensed before the deadline for submitting our business plan for registration!

By the way, God has already provided enough free curtains to cover all the windows and a gently used outdoor playground set!


We will be in the States September - November.
Stay tuned for our itinerary of services!
We would love to see you if we are in your area.
