The complex above is our longterm goal. The final product will look markedly different that the one displayed. I for one am glad for that as most of our building materials will now be donated bamboo and amican – much warmer and cultural in nature than the tin boxes previously proposed. God has a tender way of molding our will to His and causing us to to depend on Him.
A big thank you to all those who have supported Street Kids and prayed with us over the years.
God has done great things for us. He has filled our mouths with laughter and our hearts with praise. We are very aware of God’s presence. There is no denying His great grace and favor poured out on us. He is opening doors and changing hearts as He makes us more like Him each day. (More about that later.)
For now, we are in great need of prayer! The landlord, along with one of buyers for the property we are renting gave us less than four weeks to move with little or no regard for the welfare of the kids. Many of you know that the process of obtaining title to our own property has been a long and arduous task.
The most important item for prayer is to finally obtain our title. Please pray God will grant us favor as we move forward, taking a more aggressive stance. Beyond the title, there are still some great mountains to scale, however. Please also pray for God’s favor concerning all the legalities; that He go before us and behind us clearing every obstacle that hinders the building project’s completion. We ask that God be with us as we apply for electric and water connections, permits, et cetera; and for great favor with our new neighbors, the Mayor and the Barangay Captain and that He lead us to partner with the right people for the tasks at hand.
Though the tone of this letter may sound grave, we are more than confident God will complete what he has begun. God is greater than the highest mountain peak.
We also wanted to give special thanks for you; and, that we are honored to partner with you in advancing His Kingdom these several years.
WE DECLARE WITH ALL OUR HEARTS: OUR GOD IS HOLY. HE IS JUST. HE IS SOVEREIGN. AND, HE HAS NOT FORSAKEN US.
P.S. By the way, Now is a good time to plan a building missions trip! See you then.
P.S.S. This prayer need seems to always get put on the back burner: Please pray God will raise up a licensed social worker who has a heart for missions to serve us.
