What is in a wall?Rich Stigall
In 2012, we wrote about loving hedges and walls.
Last month, we once again asked you to help meet the basic, on-going needs of orphaned and abandoned children through our Different December tradition.
Today, we see another example of how important your willingness to meet these basic health and safety needs really is.
Recently, the Haitian government declared that Pastor Mongerard’s community at Darivager (southern Haiti) needed a perimeter wall. A wall to protect assets. A wall to define boundaries. A wall to keep children safe. If they did not build the wall, the government might close the children’s homes as early as February.
Thanks to the investment from a church in our GO family, that’s not going to happen. What is in a wall? In this case, their closed gate will help keep the doors open.
Thanks to your generous response to our Different December tradition, in 2014, we can help our partners comply with government requirements so that they have the opportunity to care for children. And, we can continue to help meet those daily needs, like medicines, screens, latrines, kitchens, and walls, that improves the quality of care.
