See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
Dear Faith House Supporters-
One year ago, I left a full-time job to become the first Executive Director of Faith House. As I look back over this past year, it is hard to believe that everything that happened encompassed only one year. At times, it has felt like 5 years in one! As the year came to a close, we were blessed with a beautiful home which we are preparing to welcome young mothers and babies. It was amazing to see this purchase come together- the Lord truly called so many people forward to bring this to pass in so many ways! From our generous donors who raised 100% of the purchase price, to numerous professionals who donated necessary services, to all the volunteers who have come together to clean out the house and begin to prepare it for this life-saving ministry. From our home inspector to our title company, from our pest control company to our septic company, from many church youth groups to our plumber and insurance agent: we are so grateful to all of you who have embraced this mission and joined together to bring this work to this critical juncture. Renovations will be beginning soon on the kitchen, and so many people have purchased items large and small from our wish list to furnish the house. Please see faithhouseny.org/howtohelp to how you can contribute to make the house a home.
As we prepare to open, I invite you to further invest in this ministry by becoming a monthly donor. As you know, Faith House does not receive any government support. We are completely dependent on the sacrificial giving of those who believe in this work- who believe that no one should be homeless and pregnant, that babies deserve to be born into a safe and nurturing environment, and that women will not choose abortion when they have practical alternatives to meet their needs. In our current political landscape in New York, it is more important than ever that we offer pregnant women the real, concrete help they need to choose life, both during pregnancy and after their babies are born.
Currently 50 dedicated people support Faith House every month. Walking by faith, continuing to give month in and month out, before they could see any fruit from the seeds they have sown. These are the people that truly amaze me- we would not be where we are without you. Opening our doors will require a real leap of faith from all of you who have been praying to see Faith House open. To meet our expenses will require $9000 per month from committed individuals, churches and businesses. Can I count on you to join this special group of donors? Your dedicated monthly investment in the women and children who will have their lives transformed through the Lord's work in Faith House will bear fruit for generations to come. Please join this courageous group of donors by making a monthly pledge through our website today.
We are encouraged every day by knowing you believe in this work and are making the vision a reality! Thank you so much for your continued prayers and generous support!
