“I went to get take out. I looked and noticed there was no plastic silverware. I asked the lady for silverware and she told me that she could sell me a set.”
This is the story my husband used to explain to me how he felt about the orphanage moving. He continued.
“Plastic silverware is just something you shouldn’t have to ask for. It should just come along with the meal. This is how it is with the house for the orphanage. We started the orphanage under the impression that we were being led by God. He has a place for the kids. I am sure of it. It is like the plastic silverware, it comes along with the deal.”
We have been looking at many places. We are confident that God has a home for the kids. We just need to keep looking and keep our faith up. Thank you for praying with us.
As I mentioned before these last couple of months have been tough times for us in The House of Dreams Orphanage. We have found ourselves looking for a new location for the home because the owner of the building we are in sold the property. We have seen a decrease in financial support in a crucial time. Also we have received the announcement from the government that in a few months they will begin to start cancelling the agreements with many countries for international adoptions. These have been trying times to say the least, but in the middle of these times there are always good things that we have been able to focus on.
Today while I was walking by our Christian school I saw Roberto, one of the children from our orphanage, playing. It has been several months since Roberto received an operation to straighten his eyes. The doctors had said that if he did not get it adjusted he might go blind. So through a lot of prayer, communicating the need and a ton of hoping we had a few partners step up and agree to help us get his eye surgery. As I looked at his eyes today I could not help but to be struck by how good they looked.
The truth of the matter is that lately just about every day has been a struggle, but times like these give us encouragement that we are actually able to make a difference. A difference at least in the eyes of one little dreamer. Thanks again to every one of you that has stepped forward and helped the orphanage project. You make a greater difference than you will ever know.
Bye bye house.
Another move? Really!?
Yes. We are moving the orphanage, once again. We would prefer to stay where we are, but the landlord has sold the property. Needless to say, this came as a surprise to us. We will be moving the first week of November.
Please pray with us through this transition. We believe that this is going to work out for good as we trust God.
- Pray that we would have wisdom about where to move. It might be time to buy a place. We need to hear God clearly about this. We desire to be led only by Him.
- Pray that the financial provision is abundant.
- Pray that the transition is smooth for the children.
- Pray that we have a good sized team to help with the move.
Thank you for helping us in this fashion. Your prayers make a big difference. We will keep you posted as moving day approaches.
Getting extra help in the House of Dreams is always wonderful, especially when it comes by way of energetic volunteers. We have a new couple helping out in the orphanage for the duration of three months. So far they have worked three days a week for just about a month. They are still loving it. This is a good sign!
Romon and Melinda Gore have been married for two years. They have aspirations for full time missions. This time of service is a step in that direction. We are grateful for the help they are providing.
Melinda is enjoying her time with the babies. Romon has been hanging out with the little men providing some much needed male influence.
