Now Look What You Did!

I was so excited to get an update with pictures in my inbox regarding the progress on Grace’s new baby home in Tijuana, Mexico.  God spoke directly to my heart when we were working at the orphanage last December.  He told me to donate 100%  of ad revenue from my blog to help in the construction of this new abandoned baby home.  I am so excited to show you the progress!

Here is what it looked like when we were there right before Christmas:

And here is the progress:

The first floor is completely finished, and they have begun framing the second floor!  You can see the main orphanage to the left.

Here is an artist’s rendering of what the baby home will look like when complete:

Isn’t that cool?  God is on the move!  Thank you guys for being a part of this with me.  I’m not sure when the project will be complete, but my secret prayer is that it will be done this summer.  I would love to go down with Kahuna and the kids and help care for the babies.  That would be amazing!

That is awesome!!! Congratulations!! it's great to see it come together huh? One of our local pastors just traveled to Mexico this past week to visit an orphanage and see what work they can prepare for when they return this summer. I'm enjoying seeing the adventures through both of your stories.

HOW AWESOME.
I wanted to let you know some big news. My blog has moved to www.itssoverycheri.com
Please come over and RE-SIGN UP to follow me at the new site. Google does not allow you to take your followers. If you have already found the new site-sorry for the confusion. (Some don;t have links set up so I can't see their blog, plus going back and forth between the 2 blogs...) I am trying to go back and forth between the old blog and the new, while I am getting through all my followers. I am super close to closing down my old blog.
I also have a new give-a-way that started yesterday.
