Just over 6 weeks ago Bethesda made a down payment on a piece of property! The land is about 3 miles from our current location, right on the main road and is much bigger than what we have now. We have paid approx 40% of the total cost of the property and have until May to pay the rest. However we are praying that we will be able to pay of the remainder of the property by the end of the year.
We have a great team working on property including two architects who are working on building plans and EMI (engineering missions international). We are so thankful for these people and how God has provided them to join our team.
We have two fundraising teams going, one in the US and one in Canada. Somehow I have managed to be on both of them! We are planning events, Christmas mailings, trips for Dr Rodney and lots more on social media. We do need some more personnel on these teams if your interested in getting involved please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Or if you could hold an event for us to raise awareness and support for Bethesda and the project to move please get in touch. We will give you all the information you need to hold an event.
We are sending out monthly prayer updates, this is such a big project and needs to happen in a very short time period that we want to make sure the whole project is covered in prayer. If you would like to be added to the monthly prayer updates, again please send me your email address. Once a month we will be having a special day of prayer and will be asking people to sign up for 30 minute intervals so we can make sure the whole day is dedicated to praying for the project to build a new bethesda. This first day will be on 18th December. Keep checking our facebook page for details of how to sign up. https://web.facebook.com/BethesdaMedicalCenterHaiti/
Finally we completed our first video, explaining the work of Bethesda and our plans moving forward.
So were moving forward and its all good.
