Another family has stepped forward to provide the rest of the funds needed for the Hope Springs’ Orphanage and Training Farm project in Dono-Manga, Chad. Praise God!
This means that we will be able to begin construction on all facilities around the 1st. of March giving us sufficient time to complete the project before the heaviest rains of the rainy season begin toward the end of June.
I am convinced that when we listen to learn where God is working, He will show up to provide our needs abundantly. Hope Springs had no plans to begin a work in the nation of Chad when we received that first S.O.S back in February of 2009. But God heard the prayers and pleas of the families who over a six month period had buried 600 of their children who had died from water-borne diseases and treatable childhood illnesses. Three years later 26 wells have been repaired, 16 new wells are being drilled as I write this, a new clinic has been constructed and stocked with drugs, and now we are ready to embark on a project to provide a home and future for 41 orphans. We were also told, on our recent trip to Dono-Manga, that there has been a significant drop in the death rate of children under the age of 5 where wells have been repaired. Add to this the new churches that have been established and almost 70 new Christians who have come to faith in Jesus.
Many of you have and continue to support Hope Springs International. Thank you for being Jesus to many who will be eternally grateful for your sacrificial giving to make this work possible.
