Samuel Project Update

Copied from our newsletter:

  We have shared a bit about a new initiative we are concentrating on in Slovakia.  The goal is, in partnership with a newly-formed local non-profit called Jekh Drom (One Way), to establish a private preschool.  Last month, a small team from CBF-Heartland came to Slovakia and as part of their trip, visited the village and Roma settlement where this preschool will be.  It was an incredible opportunity at just the right time.  Not only were we able to hear an update on how the non-profit was formed, their goals, and the challenges they are encountering, we were also able to tour a couple of properties which are available for purchase to house the school.
   There was unanimous agreement among us that the best property is a home located very near the settlement.  The home is sufficiently large enough to house the preschool and hygiene center and includes an additional piece of land Jekh Drom could utilize in the future.  We need your help to purchase the home.  The cost, still under negotiation, will be about $45,000.  Can you or your church help with this purchase?  We already have raised approximately $8,000 but we need your help.  Please consider a one-time gift to Samuel Project #89757 and help transform the story of the children of Vazec.  Contact us and we’ll be glad to answer any questions you might have.
   As you give, we also ask for your prayers for the Samuel Project, the social workers involved, and the non-profit Jekh Drom.  The social workers report intense and hateful resistance from some in the community who are not interested in doing anything to address the extreme poverty in Vazec.  Pray for strength, peace, and God’s favor to be on Daniela, Martina, and Richard.
