Thank you for your beautiful and informative Christmas edition of Mission Outreach Newsletter #54. You highlight very good things happening in so many parts of the world through the work of yourselves and your generous benefactors. Thank you.
Please find attached a brief updated report on our project for disadvantaged women and children, including a few photos. Your help in this work is so very much appreciated. Although there are the inevitable ups and downs with such a project, overall the work continues to make good progress and already there are many people knocking on our door seeking accommodation and child day care as they see the facility coming nearer to completion. Hopefully, this should be achieved in January, God willing if we can meet our remaining financial obligations for the final stages of the works while we continue with our efforts to source the last funding required.
We are very appreciative of the support you have given us to date and I know I feel like Abraham in his bargaining for the 50, 40, etc just ones in Sodom, that "I am bold indeed to ask" but if there is any further allocation you may be able to assist us with towards the final works of the project then we would be extremely grateful.
Thanks so much for all your continued outreach in so many ways.
