January 4, 2018 - A few month back, I mentioned an idea that groups or churches might want to do to help us with the Safe Home. The idea was to have a house warming party. Here is what we wrote:
Safe House Warming Parties:
What we are thinking is that your group would pick a time to gather and when you do, everyone brings a gift (that is cash or check in a box or envelope with a picture from a local store) of something you want to see the home have (don’t buy the gift, the picture is just to show the folks at the party). Everyone exchanges gifts and each one opens one to show the group what we are giving to the Safe House. We envision stories of what we are doing being shared and maybe even someone from the team skyping in to be part of the Party. And of course refreshments can be shared and some time spent praying for this project.
We just had our WMI meeting with a 'shower' for the safe house there.
$20 - bed pillows, $35 - area rug, $50 – microwave, $50 - pillows and blanket, $20 - crock pot, $25 - flowers for the yard, $75 – towels and 2 gifts for 'most needed' of $20 and $30 for a total of $325.
This is not a large church but they were able to help us as we prepare to get the home ready to open. Why not consider doing this with your church. If you need help or have questions email us. We will get you what you need to make it happen.
This week continue to pray for the Construction progress on the Safe home.
Pray for the new livelihood group that is now sewing thing for us to sell - watch for them in future emails.
Praise God for His provision and blessing -we were able to meet our Budget and have a bit of a surplus for this year!
