Many of you feel you can’t give monthly but you can give from time to time. These projects are opportunities for you, your youth group, Sunday School class or any other small group to participate by giving to various projects.
Because we don’t have the means to take from our monthly support to put towards these projects we will only proceed as the Lord provides through His people, people just like you.
Ask the Lord for creative ways you can get involved as well as get others involved. Car washes, bake sales, softball tournaments, collecting & recycling cans are various ideas you can use. Don’t stop there, let your creativity flow.
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.
4. Nicho and Jararing’s children’s school needs
Would you please pray about helping out with our new co-workers kids’ school needs? The initial cost is about $90. It may not seem like much to you and I, but for them it is beyond their means. Click on the picture and it will take you to our other project ministry blog for more details.
