UPDATE on “El Hogar Prometido – The Promised Home.”
Dear Covenant Partner,
We rejoice in the goodness of the Lord as we just found out that 90% of all of our paperwork has been approved for the orphanage that we will have on campus: The Promised Home. The last 10% of our approval comes with the furnishing of The Promised Home for 30 children. Phase I: Buying the appliances and bigger items like high chairs, baby beds, playpens, washers, and dryers etc. One of our partners sent in the finances to complete Phase I. To God be praised and our hearts are still rejoicing. Phase II and III will be the smaller items like equipping the kitchen with dishes, silverware, pots and pans, diapers, bottles, sheets, blankets, tables and chairs for the babies/children. The CNA (adoption department) in Guatemala City came on the 13th of September and approved the last 10% with the furniture that we had bought. One or two more documents need to be signed and shortly we should be receiving children. We are excited, to say the least, as we see another part of our vision unfold. To God be praised!
We will be adding staff to help take care of the babies/children: Cooks, cleaning help, a secretary, social worker, educator, nutritionist, and pediatrician, which are all required by the CNA department to run the orphanage. We will need covenant partners and we ask that you pray about helping in any way that you can. No gift is too small. We bless you in the name of Jesus.
In His Amazing Love,
Marion Z. Wright
SHOEBOX UPDATE FROM THE US HEADQUARTERS
On August 22nd, we loaded container #1 bound for our campus in Guatemala.
Yesterday, September 15th, we loaded container #2. Both containers were packed to full capacity!
Once they arrive in Guatemala, they will be off-loaded at our hangar and prepared for distribution during our Operation Shoebox mission trip December 2nd - 10th. During our 2015 Operation Shoebox mission trip, over 17,000 children were touched through this outreach and 7,212 made the decision to make Jesus the Lord of their lives. I look forward to being able to share our 2016 report towards the end of this year. A "big" THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed to this outreach this year.
