What’s it going to take??

 In Uncategorized

Many ask “So when will you be opening the foster home?” or “When will you be able to take in children?”.  This has been quite a journey.  It’s through the journey that God is holding us, preparing us, and guiding us to OPENING DAY!  We can’t wait for that day either!!!  We’ve mapped out a list of things that NEED to happen in order to open Casa Rescate.  They are listed in order from what needs to happen first, until opening day.  There are obviously some things that can be switched around, or if they happen sooner, we wouldn’t mind.  This is to help give you, the supporter, an idea of what needs to happen, and us, the local missionaries, a checklist to keep us on track!

While we have prayed and thought through this list, we are sure something/a project will come up that we didn’t plan on.  Please give us grace as we are learning through this whole process!

What’s is going to take to get to OPENING DAY….

While we have thought long and hard while putting this list together, to make sure as to not forget anything, we know that there are glitches, and set backs bound to come up.  We ask that you pray with us as we check these items off!  We ask that you pray for funding to come in as we raise money for different projects, and pray for more short-term teams (this helps cut our costs down).
