Thank you so much to everyone who made our trip possible.  Whether you prayed, gave financially, or shared our story with your friends, you have made a difference!

Our missions team spent 2 weeks partnering with the ministry of New Hope Center .  We worked on renovating a home for aged-out orphan boys to call home while they are attending trade school at the New Hope dairy farm.  The New Hope team said our work was a great encouragement and put new wind in their sails to keep them going in their ministry.  

Your support has blessed…

…my dad and I: by helping us to get there and knowing you are behind us all the way

…New Hope staff: by encouraging them and sending them the help they needed

…orphans and house parents: who will live in a home that should be updated and livable by the start of school in September

…aged out orphans: who we met and encouraged in their lives as they study at a government trade school

…the village of NP: who got to see what can be accomplished when believers work together for the orphan

God is doing great things in this ministry and with the Trade School in the village!  They are in the process of purchasing a 3rd group home for more students and have dreams and plans of expanding the trade school to offer more programs and reach more orphans.

Thank you from us, from them, and from all those who will be touched by this ministry in the future!

If you have missed any of my posts along the way or are just joining our story now and want to hear how this trip came about, here is the full list of blogs about our trip.  I am amazed at how God put everything together for us in just 3 months!
