God has a plan.

Dear Prayer Warriors,
I haven’t gotten an update out for over a week as you can probably imagine I have been quite busy. I have received notes of encouragement from a few of you, it is great to know even when I don’t have time to send out these updates that you are all praying for all of us here at Casa de Fe.

Craig, Celeste and family are here and settling in to their new environment, as you can imagine it is quite a change for them but they are following and looking to God for each step.

Yesterday I took Craig’s parents to the airport in Quito expecting that when I returned there would be a new little boy, Boris, at the house. While we were still on our way to Quito Ines called and said that Boris would not be coming right now but maybe next week. Well when I got home at 8:30 pm I was surprised with the addition of not 1 but 2 little boys. Luis, 3 and Dennis 19 months, brothers who were found living in a 3 x 3 meter room, naked, their food left on the floor for them to eat and only a sheet to cover them while they slept on the cold bare floor. There mother left them alone from 7 am to 10 pm while she went to work. They were very dirty when they arrived but were both cleaned up sleeping in beds dressed in pajamas and clean blankets when I got home. This is what your prayers make possible. God bless you.

So this puts us up to 23 children. We are moving some things around today to fit everyone in but we really need to get going on the construction. After talking to my board of directors and Craig we have decided to start on the Multi-use building as that is a large building with a kitchen and 4 small apartments on the upper floor and with the completion of this building we could move all the kids to the property together and out of rented and very crowded facilities. We need teams and money. I hate to put that so bluntly but I think it is good for you to know how to pray. I believe that God is saying to me "Trust me I have a great plan and want only the best for you my children"

Marlin is doing great and I haven’t had any children in the hospital for almost a month. Please keep her in your prayers.

God bless you all I would love to hear from you.
