Quote of the Day: You have to have support to accomplish anything. We have the One Book Foundation. Me
We are supported by the One Book Foundation based in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It is a non-profit, 501 3c organization so that people who contribute to our work can get a tax deduction. It is also a board of very dedicated and wonderful people from across Arkansas, many of whom have been here and gotten their hands dirty in the African soil. On Saturday, they had a meeting and agreed to send money to buy 100 Bibles, 100 mosquito nets, three sewing machines, three bicycles, and to buy some land for the Lamadi church building. This is fantastic news because this will expand the Kingdom quite a bit and make many people here happy. It will keep some alive and bring the Word of God to many more. In addition, because we are now feeding thirty orphan children and fifteen young students here every day, the board agreed to fund the building of a much bigger kitchen which we will begin next week. We can't say thank you often enough or loud enough for the work of our board. They lift us up in prayer, raise funds for us, and manage the funds we receive--all with no pay or other recompense. They are a great group, and we are so grateful for their love, trust, and support. There will be pictures of all of the above as we get them and distribute them. Thank you, board. God bless you all.
