UPDATED NEEDS – Winter 2012
We thought our roller-coaster of monthly support was finished – but seems like God CONTINUES to have FAITH tests lined up
Starting in April we dropped down $380/month as other supporters had to cut back on their current donations.
My brother reminded me that God is my biggest supporter and He’ll provide! That He has a plan for us! Holding on tightly to that as we try to provide for our family of 10.
Anything you can help with -a one-time gift – or even a small donation of 10.00/month can make a difference in the lives of those whom He called to serve in Haiti.
NEEDS FOR MOVING OUT TO THE MOLE
With our move out west our life will be very different. It’s involves us starting all over again from scratch.
We are completely saying good-bye to our home in St. Louis du Nord. We will be starting from scratch. We will need many things – like plumbing supplies, electrical supplies, toilets, sinks, tile, etc. Anything you can do to help with our building costs would be a huge blessing.
We paid for our home in St. Louis by fundraising for it BEFORE we moved to Haiti. As wedding gifts we asked for donations to be made to the mission. We lived with my parents the first year we were married so that we could use our rent money to build our home. Now imagine leaving that with your 7 children and not really having another place to call home – or the funds to start from scratch. (About 30,000.00)
It is difficult for us to fund-raise for ourselves when we feel such a burden for the people we came to serve. How can I ask for help for medical insurance when I see hundreds of children near death’s door, lined up outside the mission’s clinic? How can I ask for extra to help my family when my neighbor’s family have only the hope of making it through today? So I never like to vocally speak on behalf of ourselves when the needs of Haiti are so much greater. However, I feel like God has laid it on my heart to just simply put the need out there and see how God uses His people to meet it.
If you would like more information on how you can help our family or if you would like us to come and speak at your church – we would love to do that and share our story along with the ministry that keeps us walking by Faith.
