Ernest Plea

       Greetings to all of our friends & family. As our time here comes to a close, as you may imagine, we are leaving a huge piece of our hearts in Nepal. We are so privileged to have been able to spend this precious time with these precious children & the dear people of God here. We take comfort in knowing that one glorious Day, ALL of God’s family will be together FOREVER. 

      I am convinced that along with the Bible school, on equal par is to raise awareness, and funds for this children’s home. Our wonderful home church family at Jacksonville Christian Fellowship is like the little engine that could, in regard to financial giving. I am reminded of a scripture in II Corinthians 8:5, ” ……they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will.” We know that our Lord is pleased with such sacrifices. As the scripture says “They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God.” Colossians 1:22. We are SO proud! We thank Bro. Cary & Bro. Steve & Bro. Luke and all those that are a part of their congregations for their regular giving and their love & concern. When we arrived here we saw the many needs firsthand. We personally know the price of food & shelter, not forgetting water. To fill the baptistery alone is $35 U.S.! I remind you of this to say how much we praise God for ALL of His people who have joined in the many, many one time gifts that have lifted a huge burden off of the leadership here. Thank you for trusting us to give you an accurate assessment.  We have never met some of you met face to face, but you have been obedient to God & He will bless you. Amen.

Our appeal & plea to you is in regard to the ongoing, regular needs of New Life Children’s Haven. The cost per child for food, shelter, medical care (i.e. vacinations, illness, injury), and education is $70 U.S. Concerning education, school uniforms are required by the government. For twenty-four, this can be a major expenditure. The government  changed the regulation concerning the color of the shirts for a private school, so as of two weeks ago, a new unforseen need has arisen. The total regular giving covers only about half of the needs here. As you can imagine, there is a constant struggle for survival. All I can say is that the grace of God is all that has sustained this place. God has summoned us from the other side of the planet to be an answer to the prayers of these dear children and our dear Sister Pramita, Pastor Tika & Durga and all those that love them. Our prayer is that you will commit to the monthly care of a child. EVERY penny goes to their care. EVERY ONE. These children have been rescued by faith. They trust God for their next meal. Please pray and ask God what He would have you do.

Love in Christ,
