Alleluia! Plans for the New Faith House Orphanage have officially begun! It was so exciting to watch men with their fancy rulers and big posters sit down together and begin drawing site plans! It was even more exciting to watch them as they went to the Lord, before every meeting, to make sure they were following what God wants for Future Generations International Missions and not what we all think will work.
Chase and the men worked from sun up, to sun down measuring, taping off the land, drawing and hashing out different ways to set up the four acres of land. The land will be home to the Faith House Orphanage, New Perspectives Church Jacmel, a guest house, missionary housing, multi-purpose kitchen, transition home, school, and lots of love! 😉
Of course at least one unique thing had to happen measuring the land, a cow decided Chases 200 foot tape measure would be a yummy snack! haha… Cannot make this stuff up! Never a dull moment!
The plans are still in the works, but to have the first visual drawing of the layout and buildings is such a blessing! It is all coming to fruition and I am excited to have a front row seat to watch as my husband uses his gifts and talents to bless others while building relationships with his workers to point them to Christ. The end goal of all of this is to tell people about Jesus. Still one of our biggest hurdles is the language. Chase has done exceptional in learning, but he is still concerned as each day creeps closer to employing his workers. It is important that he is able to communicate without error with his employees. Please continue to lift our family up as we continue to learn the language.
And a BIG thank you to the men that took time out of their busy schedule to utilize their talents to bless us and this organization. Your work will be a ginormous blessing to so many for years and years to come!
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. -1 Peter 4:10
