To God be the glory!

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20

We have ENOUGH! MORE than enough!!! In just a few HOURS–God has used YOU…HIS PEOPLE…to provide! We needed $530 for the nets + a bit more to pay for the driver and gas…and $1,700 has been raised!

The $1,100.00+ what we needed for nets that God so abundantly and AMAZINGLY poured in through HIS PEOPLE…will go toward the teenage girls of Korah to support them so they will stay in school. We will be purchasing 10 pads for each girl so she can wash out the used ones every other day during that not so fun week of the month. (I know this doesn’t sound fun–but NOT having anything to wear at all…is really not fun!) Statistics in these areas show that attendance for girls drops by 40% when they don’t have these—and it’s just 8% when they do. AND…I don’t blame them!!! We will be purchasing as many pre-made as we can to get these to them asap—and what we do not have money for…we may be asking some of you to help make them (similar to the Red Tent Project) OR we may just need a bit more to fund the premade. Give us a few days and we’ll let you know. We are also cooresponding with Sumer to see if they have ANYTHING else they need (blankets, etc).

NOW…a word to our donors. YOU ALL ARE AWESOME, CRAZY and AMAZING!!! I am blown away!!! Thank you for allowing God to use you in a mighty way in just a few hours today!!! These verses are for you guys…

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.” Proverbs 18:10

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

“Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3

“The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears.” Psalm 18:2-6

“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16

“Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called.” 1 Timothy 6:12

“Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it.” Ezra 10:4

For those of you who WANTED to give but didn’t read this in time…NO worries. In a few days we’ll have an update on the pads situation for the girls and how YOU can help!

Wow! Just read both posts. Was eager to see what you were up to and how to help, but I’ll look forward to a future opportunity. What an awesome testimony to God’s providence and others’ obedience to His leading… What a mighty God we serve and what a privilege to be part of a serving kingdom! So encouraging to see how God is using you…

INCREDIBLE! I am so excited that extra money was raised and will go to help girls who might otherwise drop out of school. That was an issue that had never crossed my mind until I read about it in your post. OY!

Thank you for organizing this! I just finished reading your posts and was all set to donate until I saw you’d met your goal. Yes, please keep us updated as I would love to help if more funds are needed.
We are sponsoring a 9yr old girl from Korah and I’d been wishing there was more I could do to maker her school year a success. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
