Praising God as the RESTORATION moves forwardAugust 29, 2019 by Don Rogers
The fire is over and the Boy’s Dorm (Launch House) was damaged beyond belief BUT the hearts and spirits of the children and the staff are strong!
Thank you for your prayers AND for the gifts that so many of you have given! What a blessing. We have now been able to buy the boys new clothes so they can return to school, the children and parents have had times of counseling, and the review of what is needed to reconstruct the dorm is well underway.
Many of you have asked about the costs and we now see that an estimated $75,000 is needed to provide counseling and restore the clothing, school supplies, uniforms, textbooks, food that was in the storeroom, the building itself, and rewire other rooms to make them safer. NOW – we are SO GRATEFUL for the generosity and compassion of family and friends who have, as of today, donated $48,000!
This is a miracle of love and the ELI community is so touched and amazed by this demonstration of God’s love and your care. We will continue to keep you posted. Giving Thanks to God today!
“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.
You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”
