Thanks to those who, despite the economy woes in the USA, have placed the less fortunate people above themselves and continue to support Nazareth House Apostolate - the school we are building in Kabala, Sierra Leone is getting closer and closer to completion. We have received over half of the final $3K in funds needed to complete this construction project. Everything and anything you can contribute (no matter how small or big) pushes this great work to its finalization resulting in children receiving life changing education sheltered from the heavy rains in an adequate, safe structure. Rainy Season is in its infant stages presently, rest assured "the water is coming"! Donations are being accepted payable to Nazareth House Apostolate through paypal on our website (see side bar of this blog for link) and by USPS at 2216 Goldsmith Lane, Louisville, KY 40218. Please help to finish this building before the hard, unending rains come within a few short weeks. We are so close!
