So many orphaned children are seeking love and a better tomorrow! We have already saved some of them through our first children’s home, but there are so many more who plead with us everyday to save them from their hopelessness. We save as many as we can, but our space and resources are limited.
Our next big project is a second children’s home…..
So the next undertaking, God-willing, is to start another children’s home. We have almost reached capacity at our current home. We are grateful to house as many as we do; however, there are thousands more orphans without a place to call home. In fact, there are only two children’s homes (ours being the only Christian one) in the entire of the Sibiu state. So, out of the thousands of orphans in the Sibiu state, only around 26 are in homes. The rest are trapped in abusive state-run orphanages (seen in pic with kids at the fence of the state orphanage).
Purchasing a building for the children’s home…..
The first step is to purchase another building for the children’s home. We have been looking around for said home in our area. Based what we have seen, we estimate the start-up cost to be around $100,000 ($30,000 has already been pledged). This would include the property/building itself, legal fees, necessary renovations, and house furnishings. Since the new building will likely need renovations (like the last building for our first children’s home did), we will probably be needing some more building teams from the US come in 2019!
This second children’s home will be a massive undertaking that will take considerable funds, time, and resources. We will be needing a large boost in funding not only for the start-up cost, but also for the operational costs (some $6000/month). We ask for your prayers that God will make the impossible, possible.
We need more on the team…..
For those of you who have helped us come this far – saving as many kids as we have – we are forever grateful. Thank you for being part of the team. In reality though, we need more on the team. There are just so many helpless and suffering children who are crying out for us to save them. We ask that you please pray God will open the doors, speak to people’s hearts, and provide the means so we can expand our reach to save more kids.
