During the last six months the Lord has richly blessed the work of Mission Possible in Bogota, Colombia and as I present this successful report I would like to share with you Psalm 115 V 1:
“Not to us, O Lord, not to us.
But to your name be the glory,
Because of your love and faithfulness”
Project 1 – Hope House for Boys
These are examples of how your support has helped transform the lives of boys such as Brian and Jeff. Both have trusted the Lord and you can see for yourself how their lives have changed from hopelessness and despair to an attitide of confidence and well being. Brian and Jeff are just two of the many boys in Hope House who have come to a saving faith in God.
During the last six months a young Christian man called Andres, who previously lived in Hope House from the age of six, has given up his secular career in the army in order to help Luz Ma manage the Home for Boys. This is an answer to prayer as he also provides security 24 hours per day.
Project 2 – Hope House for Girls
Despite having come from very poor homes and having had traumatic experiences in their early childhood, with the help of the new Psychologist the girls are making excellent progress. The standard of love, care and the quality of the home is such a blessing for these little girls. The very capable additional voluntary staff, pictured above, are a result of Luz Ma’s enthusiasm and considerable management skills. One of the tasks of the new staff is teaching English language in both Hope Houses.
I thank God for prayers answered and the excellent progress in this Home.
Project 3 – Juan Rey Church/Feeding Centre
When we visited the newly constructed Church/Feeding Centre in January of this year, I discovered that Laura, aged 12, was very lonely and did not want to participate in any activities. It transpired that she was blind and therefore unable to take part in the various programmes which were organised for the children.
After talking to Laura and Blanca, who is the main leader of the project in Juan Rey, I learned that Laura’s eyesight could be restored but it would cost approximately £5,000 for the necessary treatment. As soon as Sadie and I returned from our trip at the end of January, we raised awareness of Laura’s plight and within the next two months we had the necessary funding to pay for her treatment. I am delighted to report that during the summer Laura has had her initial treatment and with the help of glasses, she can now see. I was also encouraged to find that the first book she was learning to read was the Holy Bible.
After many years of attacks from Satan, the Church/Feeding Centre is officially open and fully operational. Every weekend there is a Family Service where the gospel is preached by Pastor Julio Cesar and his team of Pastors. Many children from the area now enjoy a nutritious meal on a daily basis. They are told Bible stories and shown much of Gods love.
I end this report by quoting a statement made by one of the project leaders in our Foundation in Bogota.
“I want to say to you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you for all your help, your prayers and your love”
May I take this opportunity to thank you in anticipation for your continued support as we donate £5,000 per month to rescue and feed many more little children who are referred to as:
THE LAST, THE LOST AND THE LEAST
