It is truly certain that no ministry can be successful without a team of people. Committed individuals who give of themselves in love, labor, charity, and of their substance can accomplish much. In the Bible, Luke 8:2-3 gives us insight into some of the many people who served alongside Jesus during His earthly ministry. The Bible notes that these individuals ministered unto Jesus of their substance. We don't know a great deal about the individuals listed in this passage; nevertheless, one significant attribute which God lets us know is that they were fervent laborers who gave very much of themselves and of their substance to God. They helped financially fund the ministry of Christ, and much good came about through all of it!
We want to thank every single individual who ministers to children through Orphan Frontier. We are so grateful to those who come alongside with Orphan Frontier to help us help abused and abandoned children around the world. So many of you diligently spend time in prayer; others volunteer their time and efforts in various projects; and so many of you minister unto orphans of your substance--you generously give of your finances. We want you to know that the giving of your substance is noticed and greatly appreciated. Every dollar, check, and credit card donation that comes in helps fund orphanages all around the world, and much good is coming through all of it! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
One undertaking that has been ongoing for more than a year is the establishment of a new small boys' home in central Ohio. Many people have given of their substance to this home by donating furniture, dishes, blankets, pictures, toys, and many other essentials. Brother Lawrence Bowman just got word this week that the administrator overseeing his paperwork hopes to be able to hand him a state license next month. Please patiently continue to keep this endeavor in your prayers. It will be a great joy to his heart to start caring for needy boys just in time for Christmas. Brother Bowman has expressed that there are a few other items that the boys’ home needs; you can view the list at www.OrphanFrontier.org/needs.
In addition, this much-awaited boys’ home needs a new heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system, especially before the next winter arrives. The cost will be $6,500 to purchase and have a professional install this much-needed system. Would you please help purchase this very urgently needed HVAC system and installation? If you could generously give, any amount would be so helpful and appreciated!
Brother Bowman is also scheduled to travel to the Philippines for about a month before he starts taking in kids at the boys’ home in Ohio. His plans are to serve and help some worthy folks who are compassionately caring for deprived children at their new orphanage. He will also meet with local national pastors and serve alongside them in ministering the Word, in prayer, in evangelism, and in various other ways. We are seeking God in how Orphan Frontier might be of future assistance to this wonderful orphanage. We are urging everyone to please pray for this upcoming trip. He needs to raise $4,000 for all expenses, which include airplane tickets, food, lodging, travel, and disbursements in blessing some local missionaries in their needs.
Everything Orphan Frontier does is funded entirely by the donations of generous individuals such as you. Your tax-deductible contributions provide all funding so that orphans locally and around the world can be given security, education, food, medical care, and much more.
We are truly appreciative of your partnership!!!
