Besides the everyday needs that need to be met month to month at OOCM, we are endeavoring to proceed with the permanent children's home and other out buildings on the OOCM property which will allow us more stability and flexibility to minister to those around us. In many ways the villagers see this building project as a symbol of the stability of the hope they are beginning to embrace. At this present stage of the building project We have the basic structures of two buildings built (brick) and one is roofed (See pictures below). We would like to have three main wings built for the children and for use as a ministry center as well as several other smaller structures.
This has been a stretch of faith on our part to attempt such a project but God has been gracious to provide for this as well. Perhaps some of you reading this will be touched by God to specifically contribute to this project's completion. Once the main wing and the 2 dorm wings are finished and outfitted, OOCM will be able to move in and proceed with other projects on the property like growing food and teaching more life improvement classes to the widows and other villagers. We will also be able to more effectively do outreaches into the surrounding communities as well.
Note: Building #2 needs a roof desperately as we are heading into the rainy season are concerned for the stability of that structure as without a roof on there is a very real danger of weakening the structure. Please prayerfully consider contributing to this immediate need. It will cost about $800.00 USD to have a roof built on that building. The rainy season is days away!!!
