09 Oct A Note From Donna
This time of year gets busy for us as we wrap up our school year activities. Our DESEO program will be finishing up at the end of October with our school values program as well as basketball. Our ESPERO school for the deaf will end their school year as well and will graduate its first class of 9th graders. The young men in our Moses Project will also complete their academic school year but will be staying on the farm until the end of November to allow for continued farm training as well as Biblical studies. The months leading to the end of the year will be filled with planning, recruiting, and setting goals for next year’s continued effort to impact lives and move them towards a deeper relationship with their Creator. As we mention in our year end campaign launch video (see QR code above), we feel the reality of being on the front line very intensely these days. Perhaps we are weary, worn down by life’s challenges, but we believe the weariness brings us into a more dependent relationship with the Father. Ironically, or perhaps providentially, facing challenges and disappointments are reminders that self-reliance is dangerous. We are also reminded that “success” from the world’s standards is not the same as success in God’s standards. God calls us to persevere, worship Him despite the losses, and fully depend on Him to give the increase. Please pray for our family, and for each person who is either working for the mission or are being reached by our efforts. And thank you for your consideration as we launch our annual campaign.
