Linda and some of the kids were able to go to Port-au-Prince this past weekend to received the award we talked about in the last blog. It was a really special time for all of them and we are so thankful it all went well from the travel to the awards ceremony to being able to spend some time with our kids who are there going to school.
There is a new edition of the House of Hope print newsletter going out to our partners far and wide this week. This year's newsletter features a really neat story from the past. To read it, follow this link: House of Hope Newsletter
As you know, with the end of the year coming up there are always extra expenses for us and the need to bring in more support. This letter encourages all of our supporters to see the way their support has helped us bring hope to so many children and youth over the years and encourages people to continue to help us do this. Please pray with us as the letter goes out that God would use it to supply all of our needs.
We have an exciting matching donation program going on this year with our partnering organization Extreme Response. From now until the end of the year, all gifts given to the House of Hope through Extreme Response will be matched by a generous donor. These matched funds will be used for various Extreme Response projects they have going on. It is a great way to have your gifts go ever further. In order to take part in this matching program, just send a gift to Extreme Response and mark it "for the House of Hope matching funds". Donations can be given here.
We appreciate you all and the part you play in this ministry. Have a great week!
