Update posted 07.01.2011


So, my site has been down for more than a week, and I was happy to know that someone noticed. Now that that's resolved, I can get back to these updates. I have had an interesting month. One of the neat things that happened is that the president of Hope For The Nations International visited us from Canada for a time of staff training and spiritual encouragement. He's a really nice guy and we don't see him much since HFTN operates so many children's homes and bases throughout Africa and Asia. The founder of our base in Davao also came with him and stayed a while to follow up with individual staff and it was really nice to reminisce about the early days of our ministry; many of our current staff and leaders were teenagers that found a relationship with Jesus through the Bible study he started at House of Jubilee back when it was a maternity clinic. God has been restoring our excitement through this, but I also have new reasons to be excited, as I am now in the process of preparing the study center to open. We have a digital projector already for classes, and a budget that should get us 4 new computers, and we will continue to raise funds until we have a full set of 12 to 15. Once the initial 4 are up and ready to use, we'll open the lab for sponsored students to study on, probably in the next two weeks. It's great to see something coming together after having a vision to do it for so long. Cathy and I are also hoping to do some more fundraising this summer, as we have not met our goals yet but aren't very far from doing so. I've written a new support letter that outlines our ministry, and need to get it into people's hands, so if you can think of someone you'd be willing to give it to, it would be quite a help to us. The letter can be downloaded here.
