Praising God for Pillows!

We are excited about how God is answering our prayers and bringing greatly-needed improvement at Harvest Ministry’s Guma Na Yesu “Keep With Jesus” Children’s Center.

Thank you so much for LOVING ORPHANS with us. We are so grateful for every prayer and every gift that has been helping with this mission goal. Here are a few pictures showing a bit of the blessings from this month’s project: –PILLOWS FOR KIDDOS!

The pillow blessings begin . . .

Going to pick up the first batch of pillows . . .

a truck-full of love . . .

What a blessing!

Presenting pillows at Guma Na Yesu’s Kingdom Vocational Secondary School

Look at all the smiles. . .

Even the teachers got a pillow. May God bless them all for their ministry!

These kids are special and chosen!

HARVEST MINISTRY: Hallelujaaaaaaaah!!!! How exciting and wonderful. As each of these precious and awesome young people (and teachers) lay down their heads at night, may they each know that GOD cares for them so much, that they are LOVED, and that they are each CHOSEN one-by-one to be a blessing in the kingdom of God. Step-by-Step we’re moving forward. WE LOVE YOU ALL!!! — Harvest Ministry, Jon & Ann

GUMA NA YESU CHILDREN’S CENTER: Amen! Thanks Jon and Ann [and to everyone who gave to Harvest Ministry for these pillows]. All the children [the youth at GumaNaYesu’s Secondary School] were very happy to receive these, knowing they are loved and cared for. God is great. Blessings to you all. We love you so much !!! –Naboth & Alice

Thank you so much!

Thank you for your continued love and prayers for these children. This is just the first step. We’re continuing to work on PILLOWS for all the younger children.

Please keep praying!

Seeking God . . . more than anything

EXCERPT from a new article on Visionary Womanhood:

“Oh, I want to be “single-hearted” for the Lord, with my entire soul (my mind, my will, and my emotions) staying steadfastly on God, and not going off on some “crazy-wild-goose-chase” of distraction from God’s peace and God’s best. I want to STAY single-hearted in that place of stillness with Him, where my spirit is clear and uncluttered . . . so I can know His perfect will . . . and I can know Him.” — Ann Dunagan

Come join Ann at VISIONARY WOMANHOOD as she’s encouraging women with a new article: “Blessed are the Single-hearted” about seeking God more than anything, even more than His fruit, His help, and His gifts (with powerful missionary quotes from Amy Carmichael and Hudson Taylor about prayer, seeking God, and abiding in Christ).

Pillows for Kiddos!

Goal Progress for Pillows & Power: 100%

Exciting News:

PHASE 1 of this GOAL is COMPLETE!!!
PHASE 2 of this GOAL is COMPLETE!!!
We now have POWER at Guma-Na-Yesu!

WooHoo!!! Glory to God!

Thank you to everyone who gave and prayed!

PHASE 1: We are excited to report that Harvest Ministry has received enough special mission support to completely pay for the POWER (electricity hook-up to benefit all the younger children at Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center) plus pillows for all of the older kids who are living at the secondary school.

PHASE 2: Praise God! The PILLOW-PROVISION for all of the younger children has now come in. The provision has been wired to Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center . . . and as soon as this support is processed, the blessings of pillows will be distributed to all the children.


What’s next . . . BEDS!!!

PHASE 3: Once all this POWER & PILLOW goal is met . . . will be believing God for hundreds of BUNK BEDS. This next project will be a HUGE need (at $40/child and over 500 children) . . . but we’re excited about the blessing it will be and the difference this will make!

Please keep praying!!! (And we’re not just saying that. We know that PRAYER SUPPORT makes a powerful difference. If you can PRAY for us, specifically, we would be so grateful.)

Can you Pray with us for Pillows & Power?


There are needs at Guma Na Yesu . . . that are on our hearts.

The kids at Guma Na Yesu “Keep with Jesus” Children’s Center, such as brother and sister, David and Mackline (those cute little kiddos who are singing in the video above), are in a good, safe place. They have their basic needs met, unlike the sad and desperate situations where many of these kids (nearly all who are orphans) were before.

God is really doing so many GOOD things . . .

Good reports . . .

The children at Guma Na Yesu now have food to eat, blankets to keep them warm, and mattresses to sleep on (on the ground). They have clothing (uniforms, play clothes, pajamas, and church clothes), loving care, Christian education, and excellent spiritual training with real-life kingdom-advancing discipleship — including daily prayer, worship, Bible training, and even opportunities to participate in local (African) mission outreaches.

But our heart longs to do more . . .


Goal: A Pillow for Every Kiddo . . . & Power!

Specifically, the children at Guma Na Yesu do not have any pillows or beds, and there is no power. We have a goal to make some improvements, beginning with bringing in electricity, and then providing a personal PILLOW for every child. We want these kids to to know that Jesus loves them, cares for them, and wants them to have a sweet sleep.

With so many children, even simple improvements can be a huge need, but we know it’s not a big deal for God. Could you please pray with us, specifically, for God to help us to provide a pillow for every child and youth living at at the Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center — including all the primary school children and youth — which is a total of 700 children (and pillows!!!)
TOTAL PILLOW GOAL — 700 pillows –remaining need: $0

Praise Report of God’s Provision!

An additional GOAL is to bring in electricity to Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center. Recently, electricity was brought-in to a nearby property, so the cost of “hooking-in” is now only $2,000. This will greatly improve life at Guma Na Yesu.
TOTAL ELECTRICITY GOAL — $2,000
(PRAISE GOD! — This need has just been sponsored!!!)

 


Goal Progress . . .

TOTAL for our current Guma Na Yesu ORPHAN GOALS

(for 700 pillows and electricity) = $7/pillow
Remaining need: $0

 

Please pray with us!
This is an exciting and worthwhile goal!

 


WooHoo!!! Our PILLOW & POWER goal has been met!
