We are pleased to announce that our Afterschool program started last November and now we're starting phase 1 of a 3-phase construction process. Phase 1 starts with fundraising for a large project - purchasing land and constructing our first children's home and the office.
We are trusting that God will provide the finances over the next year, as we will be purchasing the land in April 2021. Please let your Churches know about this large project we have planned here in Romania. By the end of the 3-phase project, here's what will be happening on our campus and in the city of Târgu Mureş, Romania:
1. A fully-running afterschool program
2. A food distribution program for families and widows in need
3. A job preparation program for parents who don't have a job
4. 3 children's homes housing a total of 18 children
Beyond the one-time needs, we also will be having monthly expenses to take care of during this time and beyond it. Please also pray that these needs will be met. But, above all, please pray that God uses this ministry to bless those in need and grants salvation to those who are using our programs.
A few years ago, my wife and I felt led to start something, at the time we thought it would be an orphanage (however, orphanages aren't allowed now here in Romania).
Go forward a couple of years, and in 2019 we finally made it happen by starting a Christian non-profit organization here in Romania. Potter's House Ministries was started last year. In November 2019, we started an afterschool program. However, now we are looking for support for purchasing land and building 3 children's homes by 2023.
Would you consider supporting our ministry? We also eventually would like to host mission teams here in Târgu Mureş, România (an office and missionary housing is part of the funds we are raising support for, so eventually you'd be able to stay on the campus for the mission trip). Here are more details about our project plans:
