The MacIntosh Families

We were blessed to get to know the MacIntosh families from British Columbia as they served this past week. Besides serving at the Children's Home, the two families continued putting primer on the Baby Home walkway and stairs. Along with fellow YUGO missionary, Ron Struska, they also helped load the remaining roof panels onto the roof. Both these tedious tasks were accomplished during last week's heat-wave. It was refreshing to see two brothers uniting their wives and children in service to our Lord.


1. We have started on the plumbing and find ourselves in need of plumbers who can work in a mixed environment of PEX pipe and copper pipe. Please pray for willing and able plumbers.

2. We are in the process of moving all of the drywall and insulation across the border. Please pray for the safe arrival of these products.

3. Most of the roof panels have yet to be installed. Please continue to pray for our roof guy, Chuck. Pray that God would open up his schedule to come finish the job. More importantly, pray that God would open Chuck's heart to the love of Jesus.

Vintage Faith Church of Santa Cruz

This week we were blessed to have Vintage Faith Church of Santa Cruz serve at GCH. The team arrived Wednesday afternoon and spent the next three days bonding with the kids while tackling a variety of cleaning and maintenance projects. They also had a small crew working on the plumbing in the Baby Home. The drains are about 90% complete. Part of the plumbing crew also helped load some more of the panels onto the roof before the drizzle (drizzle in July?) forced us off. No matter what was asked of them, this crew worked with total joy as unto the Lord.


Praise God that all the windows are now installed and that someone is coming next week to install the exterior doors. We will then be able to lock the building up and start wiring the house. Also, we have spots open in August for teams to come and continue the work on the Baby Home. Please pray for the Lord to send His workers to fill those spots. If you are interested in being one of those workers, please contact Juan Strutton at

Elevation Church of Santa Cruz

Elevation Church just completed their very first mission trip as a church body. They had a small construction crew working on the Baby Home and several teams doing activities with the kids. The windows are all in. The walkway railing is finished and primed.  Exterior doors have begun to be installed. As their trip came to a close they wanted to bless the Baby Home through prayer and graffiti. Several team members walked through the home and wrote verses, blessings and encouraging words for future workers that will help finish the project.


The roof installation has begun! Please pray that it would continue and that no one would be injured while working up there. Keep our roofing guy Chuck in your prayers. The Lord is not done with him yet. Pray for God to continue showing Himself strong on behalf of Grace Babies' Home.
