In Joshua 1 the Children of Israel have gathered at the river Jordan. The land promised to them was just on the other side of the river. They could see the land, but they did not have access to the land. The hope of the promise continued to sustain them.
Five years ago, Project 1418 and our church started to build a place for children who had no mothers or fathers. We have partnered with Reaching 360 to help complete this place which will be called home. A home called The Farm where displaced children would be loved and nurtured. A place where Christ was preeminent. A place to be educated, to understand the power of unity, and the strength of community. Frederick Douglass said it this way: "it is easier to build a strong child than to repair broken men". We want to take these children who are true orphans and put them in a home where they will be loved and nurtured. Many of the children became orphans from the 2010 earthquake. We will be taking pictures and getting bios on each of the children during this trip so YOU can bridge with them.
2018 has brought us to our Jordan River. God said for us to build and we have hoped and acted in line with His leading. We are on the cusp of finishing the home for children in the Caye area. Just like the Children of Israel, we stand looking at the promise, yet the finish to the promise is still one trip away. With the God's grace, we will finish the home for orphaned children in June of this year. We will take a team of dedicated workers to finish the task, but we need your help. Please consider partnering with us financially. One last obstacle, one last trip so these precious children can occupy.
