Blanketed with LOVE!

While back in the US in July, a small country church (Cassels Alliance Church of Manchester, PA) asked if we could make a special delivery of blankets to the children of the Hope House, here in Libreville. They were blankets provided by the efforts of children that participated in the "Vacation Bible School" of their church. So, after receiving the blankets via shipping container recently, we were able to make the delivery. The kids loved them!

The Hope House (Maison d'Esperance) is a home for at-risk children.

Please Pray for Pastor Israel and Mama Nathalie, who are the directors.

The kids are living in a great, temporary location, for the time being. However, rent is prohibitively too much without outside contributions. Current assistance runs out in December. Pray for more funds to come in to help keep them from moving into a less-expensive, smaller home, right in the middle of the school year.

Currently, 28 children call Hope House their home. There are 19 boys and 9 girls ranging in age from 19 months to 15 years old.
