To move from a low point to a high point. Like I said at the beginning of our years blogs, we are full of exciting news and want to release it to you all bit by bit.
As many of you who follow our ministry here will know, we are still trying to complete our payment of the hotel to help provide a secure HOME for each of the children who come into our care. As we we have said in the past, “how do you eat a whole Elephant? One piece at a time!” Many of you have helped bit by bit towards the payment of the hotel through individual donations, various fundraisers and generous company donations.
Today, we are so pleased to say we have had a huge chunk of our hotel payment taken off our hands with a very generous donation of $100 000 (US$). This donation came through a very generous donation through one of our long term volunteers family foundation in Michigan. The Granger Foundation are a local family run foundation who help the great Michigan State in various ways through grants. After a visit from Amanda, our Attachment Co-coordinator, they heard about the Centre and our issue of paying off the hotel. They suggested she try apply through the Foundation for a grant.
Few days before Christmas, we received the exciting news that the grant had been approved and the money was transferred across.
THANK YOU LORD for your Faithfulness and Grace. This has brought our total from $245 000 to $145 000 to pay off the hotel.
Thank you all for your prayers and support. To the Granger Foundation, we can’t Thank You all enough and are so grateful to you all for relieving us a huge amount from this great burden weighting heavy on our minds. Thank you all and may the Lord bless you and your families for this.
