Last year a few weeks before Christmas the House of Dreams Orphanage was in an all too familiar situation. We needed to find a new facility for the kids. The landlord told us that he had sold the building we were renting and we needed to move by the first of January. Not cool when an orphanage is homeless but unfortunately this had happened before.
Over the last 5 years the orphanage facility has been in 4 locations because of rent cost increases, selling of the home we were in or simply because the owner did not want orphans in their property. As you can imagine our biggest prayer is to own a facility that the children can call home.
Since January 1st we have been in the process of negotiations on a piece of property for the House of Dreams orphanage and Christ Nation Christian School (4,494 square meters). The total price is $390,000. The bank has agreed to sell the property to us if we paid 30% down ($117,000). At this point we have paid $70,000. We only need to raise $47,000 before July 1st and The House of Dreams Orphanage will be well on the way to owning a home.
Because we need to make final payment before the 1st of July we are asking all of our supporting churches and friends if they can help us.
Will you give a significant gift toward the acquisition of this land?
We greatly appreciate any assistance you are able to give. Our greatest need right now is that the children in The House of Dream Orphanage have a permanent home.
Please see the instructions below on how to give.
Thank you again for helping us make dreams come true in the House of Dreams Orphanage.
