Praises and Prayer Requests
Well, dear ones, it’s hard to believe we have come to the end of 2018! We have had a couple of light snowfalls already – and it is not yet officially Winter. But, the Lord truly is gracious – the crisp and cold air smells so clean and good.
As we look forward to the approaching of 2019 – we continue to earnestly pray for the Lord to provide a fresh new influx of good male helpers! We also do not want to forget our good female helpers that we still have on board. They need constant prayer as well. Your faithful prayers are so important to us…and, to our staff…and to all the boys and girls that we have ministered to — and that we will be ministering to! Thank you so much for being there for us as you are.
Guess what! We have had given unto us some beautiful granite countertops. However, they have not yet been installed. This is because it takes some special skilled labor to accomplish this job. The countertops have been simply sitting in a corner of our Dining Hall – waiting for the Lord to send to us the ones that can work with them and get them installed for us. Finally, the Lord has sent us someone who can fulfill this task. Whether or not this will get done (like anything else) will be up to the Lord’s moving. Please remember to pray with us in this regard. It will make for a very nice finish where the renovation of our Kitchen is concerned. We will keep you updated.
One other thing – we already know that we will be needing some new plastic mattress covers for many of our beds. What we need is 40 new covers. They cost about $7.00 each. We are praying for the Lord’s leading and provision where this particular need is concerned.
Your faithful support in prayers and gifts is greatly appreciated. The cold weather causes a lot more need for propane gas. We try to keep the wood stove going as much as we can to help cut down on the gas furnace. The Lord knows our needs even before we ask…yet He commands of us to cast all our care upon Him because He cares for us. Praise the Savior!
We hope and pray that you all have a very blessed and joy filled Christmas time of year!
