Jannes May Newsletter
Dear friends and partners,
WE ARE In CRISIS MODE and NEED YOUR HELP
It’s the month of May and the temperatures are in the high 30s and low 40s – you would think our contractors would be in slow mode but just the opposite has happened – they have gotten ahead of our ability to pay for the materials and work being done on the hospital.
We need to pour another 20% of our second ground floor, brick laying has started and columns have been poured to extend the first third of the hospital. I revel at the progress and I am excited to be a part of the progress BUT we need to pay the labour and materials and it is not so easy this month. So I am making a Mayday appeal to all of you – what do we need – we need 2000 people to commit to $100 USD donation this month.
I am going to make the appeal even greater – I am going to ask 2000 of you to make this $100 USD donation every month for the next 12 months so that we can complete the building – will you stand with us? I am not asking you alone – I am making that personal commitment – so now we only need 1999 of you to stand with us.
For our women that are hurting – the month of May is truly difficult – the heat weighs heavily on their souls and minds – no relief from the heat inside or outside their bodies. Heng Nut looks at me with despair in her eyes – she is resigned to her fate in life – the fate of inescapable pain and shame brought on by an illness that could be cured – that should be cured. I am unable to speak when I face her – it’s not an easy thing to know that we will be able to help her in time but so little we can do right now. Her children are confused and bewildered with her inability to be mum.
I thank each and every one of you for listening to our pleas – for standing with is. The challenge is great – the crisis is now. I Invite you to watch this video clip yet again - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYrZQoVXkwc&feature=youtu.be
I invite each of you to talk with your friends and families – encourage others to stand with us. If we can do this then the hospital construction will be completed by the end of 2016 – and we can begin the process of bringing comfort and strength to so many who are worn out in this May heat.
I thank my God for this crisis – I thank him for each of you,
