Eagle's Nest has been caring for children for 14 yrs. + the 21 years in Xela, and we have always ask the Lord to supply the need. The need has always been met and extra blessing, but the last few month the support for the home has dropped. We are having a hard time keeping up.
Lowering staff, and more hours for others, and cutting corners where we can and still the finances or not coming in.
We know that God is faithful and testing our faith at this time, but if you don't know the need, you can't help.
Maybe your church or Sunday School class or Connection group could have a special push for funds to cover the daily needs at the home.
Felis and Pedro are giving of there time and money to make sure the children have all the opportunities as children with families, but there is a limit to what they can do. Larry and I will be going back Aug-Oct to help while Felis and Pedro take their family for a needed rest. Please pray for them.
We have invited a Guatemalan couple to come to help and we pray that their coming will be a blessing. The cost will be covered by a matching grant, but we all must do our part to reach the grant Cost $7000. The salary for the couple and their 2 children will be $800 a month.
I just posted a week ago about the Dishwasher, and it seemed like a luxury item and not much money came to cover that cost, so that now will wait.
The Daily need is what is the greatest need now. It cost $11,000 to run the home for a month. Can you imagine what it cost to house and care for the children crossing the border everyday? I wish we could help. We know that Eagle's Nest has been faithful to the children God has given us, and He will provide.
Please Help !
At this time we have 47 children and 33 go to school it day.
