I am working on a new page & blog that will highlight various projects you can help with through prayer and special one time gifts. Some of these “projects” are reoccurring such as yearly paper work to keep us here. These types of things eat away at our monthly regular support.
There are other projects we would like to do at our ministry location but at present our monthly support does not allow us to proceed. We will only proceed as funds are given to these particular projects.
1. Paper work & Move.
With our recent move from Sulawesi to Papua, we have incurred a deficit of about $1,800. In August we will have to have more paper work done. We are not sure how much that will be. Once that is done, we should be able to put some aside each month to cover next years paper work.
2. Down Stairs.
Many of you have seen pictures of the house we live in. It is on stilts and has a car port and laundry room “down stairs. We have one bathroom and limited “hanging out” room. We would like to dig and level out the rest of the underneath of the house and then put in a concrete floor. Eventually we would like to brick in that section, make a “Prophets” room, and a place the kids can have friends over and just hang out. We realize all this would have to be done in stages. I will add more info as well as pictures in the near future.
3. Volley Ball Set Up
We figure it will be about $100 for a volley ball set up. This will include the net, good ball, 1 bag of cement, sand, stones, two used tires (free hopefully) and a long pipe cut in two for the volley ball polls. The break down is like this.
1. Volley Ball Net Rp 125,000 = $ 15
2. 1 bag of cement Rp 75,000 = $ 9
3. Sand/Rock Rp 40,000 = $ 5
4. Long Pipe Rp 200,000 = $ 24
5. Good Ball Rp 400,000 = $ 48
These prices are approximate with the continuing fluctuation in the dollar vs rupiah.
If you, your church, small group, Sunday School etc. want to help with this click on “give” tab. This will be a special gift for “Volley Ball Set Up” for the Discipleship Program in Papua. Please note that with the gift.
Thank you for your participation. As funds come in we will keep you up on the progress.
