Westgate and Trinity End of Summer

This past weekend we welcomed the crew from Westgate Church and Trinity Church. Many familiar faces returned and we got to know some new ones. The crew installed all the flooring and most of the baseboards in the downstairs and the apartment, finished all of the bathroom plumbing downstairs, and finished most of the outside entrance porch and ramp. Our toddler bathroom is now complete and the bathing room is almost finished. In addition, all of back splash tile work in the laundry, bathing, upstairs and downstairs kitchens was completed. We also took delivery of over 40 baby quilts hand made by the Westgate quilting group.

CALL TO ACTION

PRAY –
Pray that the Lord sends us just the right people with the right skill sets to get all the little finish projects done.

SHARE – Use the “share this blog” buttons on the right side of this blog to share what God is doing at GBH with your friends and family.

GIVE – Help fund the operational costs of caring for our babies by sponsoring a baby for $40 monthly.

MacIntosh and Hansche Families

This week the MacIntosh and the Hansche families visited us from British Columbia, Canada. They worked diligently putting the finishing touches on all the cabinetry in the upstairs apartment and downstairs in the kitchen, bathing room and laundry room. They installed sinks, toilets, ceiling fans and pantry doors in the apartment. It was a true joy to get to know these two families with their sweet children. 

CALL TO ACTION 

PRAY
Pray that we can get all the materials and supplies ready for a team of 16 contractors coming next week. Pray that they are protected, productive, and blessed during their stay. 

SHARE
Forward this blog to your friends and family and ask them to prayerfully consider sponsoring a baby.


GIVE If you feel called to support this ministry with your finances, your $40 monthly partnership will help feed, clothe and care for the needs of an orphaned baby while contributing to the monthly operations of the home. To begin your monthly sponsorship, click here.

Neighborhood Bible Church Round Two

This past week we were visited by the second team this summer from Neighborhood Bible Church. They worked tirelessly in the upstairs apartment installing cabinets and countertops in the kitchen and bathroom, installing ceiling fans and can-light trim kits as well as all of the electrical switches and outlets. When they left there were lights, power and a kitchen.

CALL TO ACTION

PRAY -
Please pray for the process of receiving our first babies. There are hoops to jump through, people to meet and approvals to get.

SHARE - Please check out our Facebook page and be sure to “Like” it.

GIVE - As we begin the process of preparing for the babies that God has chosen to live here, would you be willing to help us prepare the way by Sponsoring a Baby?

You Shall Write Them On The Doorposts Of Your House

Once the walls were painted, we were eager to adorn them with God's Word. Our friend from Grace Chapel Indio, Kym McCoy, used her expertise to design and install Scripture on the walls in the nurseries, the toddler area, the infant area, the bathing room and the kitchen. Kym and Karina (also from GCI) labored for two days making our walls testify to the true Builder of this home. It is interesting that most of the Scripture on the painted walls is the same Scripture that was prayed over and written in sidewalk chalk on the framing under the drywall. 

CALL TO ACTION

PRAY - As we are winding down on construction, pray that the Lord sends us laborers specific to the tasks that are left.

SHARE - Talk about the ministry of GBH with one friend today. Share the link to this blog with them.

GIVE - We have currently raised 10% of our monthly operating budget. Pray about becoming a financial partner by sponsoring a baby for $40 a month.
