23 Nov A Note from Donna – November 2019
It’s hard to believe we are already in the last couple of months of 2019. This time of year is full of closure and new beginning for us here in western Honduras. Our school year ends mid- November, which means our DESEO program as well as our deaf school, ESPERO are wrapping up and beginning to plan for 2020. We face the challenge of planning for the next year without knowing if we will have the necessary funding for 2020. The demands to add more schools to our DESEO program, to add more grade levels to our deaf school, mean the need for more staff, which means more money. Since we began Mission UpReach, in 2009, we have stepped out on faith, trusting God to provide as we grow. Since we live in a country where needs are endless, it’s hard to find the balance of stepping out in faith to meet needs and accepting the limitations that God has placed on us. We ask for your specific prayers for wisdom and direction as we plan 2020 with vision and faith. We also ask that you pray for God to open hearts to our year-end fundraising plea that historically provides about half of our operational budget each year. And thank you, as always for your loving and generous support.
