We could not believe the amount of money raised in just 3 days to help build the main orphanage at Fort Jacques! Drum Roll please....$278,673.00 USD! This should build the cistern under the orphanage and get the first story raised.
None of us including Family Christian stores had any idea of what amount could be raised in 3 days time. We are just so thankful that so much money is coming to GLA to build the baby orphanage and neonatal intensive care unit!
I pushed through twitter and Facebook posts for people to donate through the Family Christian site because they were matching all donations. What a wonderful opportunity to double each and every gift!
Everyone here at God's Littlest Angels wants to send a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who bought items from Family Christian whether in stores or online and those who sent a donation through their website. I did not know when John and I had a vision to build an orphanage for the kids at GLA if I would live to see it built, but I think it's going to happen and it's going to happen soon!
We hope to break ground on the Baby Orphanage the first week of February 2014. We have faith that God will provide the rest of the funds to finish the orphanage when it is needed.
Again THANK YOU to everyone who took part in this weekend event. Each and every dollar is appreciated!
