Prayer and Horizon

"Prayer does not prepare us for the greater work; prayer is the greater work." 
— Oswald Chambers

It was a busy week at Grace Babies' Home as work continued inside and out. Dave and Heather Peddie, dear friends of Lionel and Helen Liebrecht, visited us from Canada. The Peddies’ are prayer warriors and came all the way from Calgary to spend a few days praying over the land and buildings. We spent two days preparing for and praying over the entire GCH and GBH property. Using wooden stakes with over 25 verses that we had chosen to pray over the ministry written on them, we cleansed and claimed the land. The stakes were placed at every corner and every gate of the property. It was a powerful time of prayer and fellowship. On Friday, Dave Rosenberg arrived at the YUGO office from the bay area. He brought 4 refrigerators, 2 microwaves, a dryer and 2 washing machines that were all donated to GBH. We were also blessed to have Horizon Christian Fellowship here on Saturday to keep the drywall work going. We are 99% finished with hanging drywall.

CALL TO ACTION

PRAYER- We have a few leads for stucco. Pray that they will work out.

SHARE - E-mail this blog to 3 people and ask them to sign-up to receive updates.

This week we were visited by the Friesen family who came all the way from Vancouver to work on the Baby Home. The whole family pitched in helping clean, organize and prep the upstairs drywall for texturing. Richard helped install all of the bathroom fan/lights and began installing electrical outlets and switches. Also, fellow YUGO missionaries Ron Struska and Tom Coles began the texturing process upstairs.

SHARE - Please share the blog with friends and family. 

GIVE - Would you consider sponsoring a baby for $40 per month?

Drywall, Drywall, and More Drywall

The time of cutting, lifting and screwing drywall in the Baby Home has almost come to an end. Thanks to another hard working group from Grace Chapel of Indio, all of the remaining downstairs drywall, minus two bathrooms, has been hung and about half of it has been taped. This week we will begin texturing the upstairs as well as installing all of the electrical fixtures and switches.

CALL TO ACTION

PRAY - Continue to pray for the crew that will stucco the building. God has selected them but has yet to reveal to us who they are and when they are coming.

SHARE - Please continue to share this blog with anyone that you would like to see blessed by the ministry of Grace Babies’ Home.

GIVE - $40 a month will help provide the necessary funding for Grace Babies’ Home to continue following God’s command to care for the fatherless.

Westgate New Year's Team

Westgate Church just finished up with their annual New Year’s work trip. They began hanging drywall downstairs as well as taping and mudding the remaining drywall upstairs. The entire front room downstairs was drywalled and the first coat of tape and mud was applied. In addition, we had a crew helping chase a few window leaks that showed up after the heavy rains last week. Also, Dean and Jane Richert put in a full day's work sanding drywall. Praise the Lord for sending these faithful servants!

CALL TO ACTION

PRAY - Pray for God to orchestrate all the necessary people, equipment and materials to stucco the building as soon as possible.

SHARE - Encourage your friends and family to pray for this project by using the “share” button.

GIVE - As the project nears completion, help us prepare for their arrival by sponsoring a baby. Use the “Give” button to contribute to the operational funding of the home. Your $40 monthly gift will help feed, clothe and care for the needs of an orphaned baby.
