Special Report - Flooding @ El Moral
Hurricane Alex was more of a rainmaker than wind storm, but it left its mark on Northern Mexico just as it did in central Mexico. Flooding was extensive. A description of the flood is posted in weblog format in the "Partner Login" which is a link to the website www.bobkingministries.org.
I set the weblog site up to require a password to slow down mischief makers on the web.
Pictures of the flood damage and clean-up are posted in the flood gallery.
Many of you have asked how you may help. THANK YOU! Here are some suggestions:
This is only a start. Thanks for standing with us and believing God to supply all our need. One of our board members sent me the following email message: "Sister Betty, we stand with you in faith in the power of agreement concerning all that you are facing presently, believing God for His divine protection and provision for all you need. We declare that the evil one must repay seven-fold for what he has stolen and destroyed." Amen. Be encouraged in your heart and know that God will turn this for your good!" Thank you, Brother Randy. We agree! God bless you, dear partners. I love you dearly. Betty
Ways You Can Support A Project
It is ALWAYS busy around the children's homes!
It seems the work is never fully done, and there are lists of projects either currently underway or planned for the future.
We finished the parsonage! Felipe and his family occupied it April 25, 2010. The picture below is the ribbon cutting ceremony.
The project began with a construction plan that was underwritten as a memorial for Chris Niberger who gave his life for his country while serving in Iraq. The Niberger family with the assistance of Trinity United Methodist Church of Gainesville FL provided seed funding for a Master Plan that will organize our construction and maintenance projects.
We are grateful to all that supported this project. The date for open house is narrowing to between August and October 2010.
The Children and staff enjoy the new house, though they are having to learn how to act in such a nice place.
They will get used to it...
There are two main ways that you can support Hungry Kids International projects:
1) Lend your financial support
2) Lead or join a work team
If you are interested in either one of these opportunities to serve the children, please contact us and we can help match you with the right project!
