Labor pains…

Well, we are almost there! We hoped to open on July 18

, but several factors made it necessary to push back the opening celebration another week. Therefore, July 25
is the big day!

God is so faithful. In our hour of need, we have been lavished with labors! In the past three weeks, we have hosted 4 amazing teams who have helped us immeasurably. We are finishing up on the painting/renovating of the 2 beginning residential houses and the baby house! While Jean (and Frank and Cindy- another awesome missionary couple) have concentrated on the physical projects, myself and Jeffery (an incredible South Africa co-leader) have been busy finishing all the legalities with Social Services, doing home visits, and personally delivering our celebration invite. We spent two full days visiting all the local leaders, magistrates, matrons, principals, etc., sharing our vision and inviting them to join on next Saturday! Click on link to see invite!

Please keep us in prayer as we enter the final week of preparations. We have lots of shopping and decorating to do next week. Most of all, pray for our intensive training/prayer conference we will be having with our staff and house parents on Thursday and Friday! And of course, our big day Saturday- Glory to Jesus!!!
