Had a great trustees meeting and AGM tonight. Very upbeat and lots to be thankful for. Tracey and I are very blessed to have such a good team of friends who are trustees, supporting us. Good to have Suzanne along too from Kingdom Faith. She is considering joining as a trustee too.
We shared about how our children are doing great in our homes and in school and it was lovely to watch a video of the girls singing to us.
But there were a few urgent needs flagged up –
1. We really need to raise £4,000 to increase the security at our girl’s home.
2. We need £1,500 for lockers and extra beds. This is due to an increase from 17 to 31 girls in a short space of time.
3. All our buildings (apart from our new Girls Home) desperately need repainting inside and out. The quote for painting is £3,500.
4. We urgently need finances for 17 children, mostly girl’s aged between 5 and 9 that do not yet have a UK Sponsor. We have never turned a child away. It costs Stepping Stones £40 per month to fully care for each child in one of our homes so as you can see, not having all the children sponsored is a big drain on our limited resources. But, as always we know that God provides every need according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4 v 19.
