IT’S CELEBRATION TIME IN DONO-MANGA

A special time of thanksgiving and celebration is planned next week in Dono-Manga.  Rambi reports, “There is excitement everywhere in the villages where the wells are being drilled.  Some could not believe that this is happening in their life time because they have never dreamed or imagined they would ever be able to drink from a clean water source. They have continued to give gratitude to God and souls are being won to Christ. A very big time of thanksgiving is being organized for next week to show their appreciation to God for the various projects that are being carried out by Hope Springs and to celebrate the return of Lazarus and Sabasten who recently graduated from the Jos School of Biblical Studies and returned to join in the work.

Pierre said that many people from surrounding villages that have been studying with various ministers, who have expressed a desire to make Jesus their Lord, will be baptized on that day. It is going to be a carnival. Top government officials are also expected to attend.”

Great progress is being made in drilling the wells. With the new equipment now in service they plan to complete the remaining 8 of the 20 previously scheduled wells and the newly funded 15 wells by the end of June before the heavy rains begin in July.

Rambi also reported that great progress is being made toward the completion of the Orphanage Farm Compound. Eight men are working full-time on this project. The goal is to have everything completed by the end of June.

If you have not read a recap of all that has happened in Dono-Manga over the last 2+ years then be sure to read, TODAY HAS BEEN A DAY FILLED WITH REFLECTION AND PRAYERS OF THANKSGIVING

God is at work among His people to lift up Christ through the message preached accompanied by a compassionate touch. “And he (Jesus) went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people.” Matt. 4:23. This is our model as we reach out to a world that desperately needs the message of Christ.

Orphanage Plans To Include A Farm Compound

$20,000 doesn’t go far in the U.S. anymore, but it will do wonders in Dono-Manga, Chad. It will provide a home for 41 orphans, a drip irrigation farm, a small poultry house, a small goat barn, a catfish tank, and a block wall around the entire compound.  Most important of all it will provide an environment where children without a mom or dad can get off the streets and be protected, cared for and raised to know about a Father in heaven that loves them more than they could ever know.

In keeping with Hope Springs’s vision to help people help themselves the addition of a farm compound to our orphanage plans will provide the training in agricultural and animal husbandry skills that will provide for the present needs of these children and the skills they will need to make it on their own when they are old enough to leave.

We anticipate that it will take only 2 to 5 years for this orphanage to become self sustaining. Think about it! A $20,000 investment is less than $500 per child. Individual sponsorship per child will be $100 per month for only 3 to 4 years. (Monthly donations of any amount will be accepted and combined with others gifts if you cannot provide full sponsorship for a child).

We need to begin construction as soon as possible. Dono-Manga is located in a remote area of the nation of Chad 60 miles off the nearest paved road. When the rainy season begins in June of this year connecting dirt roads will wash out and become impassable. This means that there will be little or no traffic in or out of Dono-Manga from June until the middle of October after the rains have ended and there has been sufficient time to repair the roads. If we act quickly there will be time to secure building materials and complete the orphanage before the rains begin.

Just imagine being able to go to bed at night, your own bed, with a full tummy. This is something these children have only dreamed about, but that can become a reality with your help. If God has blessed you with the desire and ability to help, send your gifts to Hope Springs International, 118 Wessington Place, Hendersonville, TN 37075, or you can donate online at our website: http://www.hopespringsint.com/

We may not be able to change the world, but we can change the world of theses 41 kids.
