Bit by Bit

Update by James Mansaray:  Freetown, Sierra Leone

Each time a donation towards the new NHA Compound comes in, it is sent to Freetown and another piece of the puzzle is created to finish the project.   
Doors and panels are being prepared now in Freetown.  
As the woodwork and trim is progressing, the bigger - most necessary things must wait to be worked on  until the money is in.

We still have to put in the well, final plumbing, wiring for generator hook-up plus more work - all necessary for your NHA Sierra Leone staff to move in.  It will not only be me and my family (your staff) without shelter, it will mean the supplies and the distributions - everything will be halted.   We have so many depending on us BUT as a Team we have proven over and over what we can do - together, nations blended to help the poor.  The important work yet to be done to the NHA Compound cannot be done without your help - we need donations NOW.

You know the work that is being done through Nazareth House.   It only takes a few scrolls backwards on this blog to see the results of your generous donations.  
This Compound is a one time expenditure, but our aid to those that suffer will continue.   It is necessary to finish this NHA Compound quickly so that we can further engage in our work helping those in need.  

Please, please send in an extra donation today.
