The Brackens in Taiwan China
have just purchased a home after 20 years of
missionary work in that nation. It has taken all
they could get together for the down payment, closing
costs, etc. While
there in February of this year, I saw their new home.
It is exactly what they need.
However, they are in need of
funds to finish the inside; building closets, racks,
etc., plus they need additional furniture to complete
their home. When I told them I would try to help
raise the needed funds, they wept because they did not
know how they could manage.
This home will end their packing
and moving every time they return to America to renew
PIM support. I do not know how they have done
all of this through the years - moving and moving and
moving. In some cases they have lived in areas
that were much less convenient than what they had
previously. They have simply had to live
wherever they could find housing upon returning from
The goal is $20,000.00
We together (Pastors and
Friends) raised $22,000.00
and that amount has now been sent to them through
their American bank account.
We exceeded our goal - TO
GOD BE THE GLORY!
While with Brother Boettcher and
Brother Yonts in the Chicago area over this past
weekend (July 14th), Brother Yonts knew of my project
for Taiwan and the Brackens in particular. He
presented it to the church on Sunday morning and in
just minutes $11,000.00 was given. This is one
of the most giving churches I have ever seen in my
travels. Simply wonderful, the spirit of giving
and sacrifice is so 'New Testament!'
My personal thanks again to all
who have given to this worthy project. God's
Richest Blessings upon you financially and in health!
