New video, news and more great news!!!

Hope For Dube Bute from Kurt Neale on Vimeo.

Please take the few minutes to watch the incredible video that Kurt made of our time in Dube Bute.  He is so talented and he shot the entire thing on his iPhone!  We are so thankful for the way that he captured the story and emotions of our time spent there.  Makes my heart just long to be back there with them.

The Lord has rained down blessing far beyond our wildest expectations for the people of Dube Bute!! We are SO close to being done with the first phase of the project and are getting ready to roll out MORE for them.  More classrooms, more clean water and a library!!!  All because so many of you have already brought them HOPE.

Many more are just beginning sub-campaigns as well as various ways to contribute to these people and we are very grateful.  They are so deserving and your efforts are greatly needed.  It has been very humbling to watch the BODY step up, use gifts and talents to help people halfway across the globe.

We still need these projects to continue to bring HOPE.  I can't wait to share a few with you soon.

I will recap a truly powerful evening we had to bring HOPE to those in Dube Bute tomorrow.  I am still so in awe of the way that He used the musical talent of Grace London and Eyasu's story to move in the hearts of others.  I will break down where we are financially and what the new needs will be- I have NO DOUBT that it will come as well and the village of Dube Bute will experience total transformation!  Praise God.

I'm amazed at what the Lord has done in just a few short years of tugging on your hearts to adopt. What a beautiful picture this video paints of how He can use submitted and obedient hearts. You are my heroes.
