We would ask you to pray for our daughter's papers. Since there was a strike in the judicial system last month, all documents have been delayed for weeks. Our family Christmas is in Argentina this year and if Anahi's birth certificate does not arrive, we will not be able to celebrate with our family.
This certificate is necessary for us to get her passport, which we need for travel for our furlough next summer.
We know that prayers can change this situation and we thank you in advance for praying.
Second, this request is for our ministry.
This year-end we have an immediate need. ICCI (Instituto Cristiano de Capacitacion Integral) will need to pay $4,000 (for various documents and to help pay an intermediary) to become a legal tertiary institution recognized by the MEC (department of education) Paraguayan government. Unfortunately, this important expense will really knock off of our budget for next year. If you would like to help us get our legal status or support one of our students next year with a scholarship, please click the “donate now” button to the right or go here and preference your support under special (other): Paraguay Projects. All your gifts are tax deductible.
We are so very thankful for the way you have supported us this year. If it weren’t for your prayers and support, ICCI would have never been launched. We have been able to identify and train new Christian leaders for practical, ministry service as well as help students learn micro-enterprise skills. We are already receiving calls from students who are on board to come next year. Thank you for allowing us to share with you these needs. We just can’t stop thanking God for His faithfulness and for the privilege it is to serve Him with you!
