We were so blessed to have two of our board members visiting last week, Kelly Brittan and Jeanne Ramirez. Kelly stayed at our home and was such a big help with the boys. She also worked with the staff and parents at the daycare and left some incredible resources. Jeanne and her husband Joel brought their group to the daycare on Friday and we had a blast celebrating some birthdays and doing crafts together. Jeanne also left some incredible supplies for the daycare and our home. Thank you, Kelly and Jeanne, for your dedication and support!
David Ramirez, recent graduate of FFHM’s Bible Institute, has been with us for the last few days in the daycare and will stay with us for the next two weeks. He will then move on to Mexico City to do a year-long service with a youth group there. He’s been such a blessing, especially to Sabino, a 16-year-old blind boy at the daycare who is learning piano. Thank you so much, David, and you will be in our prayers as you serve God in Mexico City.
We are so excited to announce that we received a very generous donation from Jill Shockley and her family and we were able to purchase a bus with a lift to pick up children for daycare! What an amazing answer to prayer! This 22-passenger bus will allow us to reach more children with special needs in our community.
- Please continue to pray for Deborah as she speaks to churches, small groups, and individuals in Washington State during the next few weeks. We are so grateful to Pastor Gary Miles from CrossPoint Church in Lynden, Washington for flying Deborah up. Pray that she continues to meet people who are interested in partnering and praying for Eternal Anchor. If you are in western Washington and would like to meet Deborah, please let us know.
- As our daycare continues to grow, pray for the staff and resources necessary to meet the needs of all the kids and families we work with. Pray especially for physical therapy equipment to be donated. If you are in the Tacoma/Seattle, WA area or the Sacramento, CA area and have supplies you would like to donate in the next few weeks, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please pray for God’s continued provision for Eternal Anchor. Pray that we receive the funds needed to hire full time Mexican staff to join us in the daycare and the home.
