The Gangs All Here!

4 09 2011

Yesterday we was an amazing example of the sense of community that we so often experience here in Kalinga.
We were at the point in the construction of our new clinic that we needed to pour the cement for the second floor. Now here in Tabuk we don’t have big fancy concrete mixers that are able to pour cement 50 feet above ground- it is all done by hand! Individuals hauling bucket fulls of cement up ladders and onto a platform. Also, it all has to be finished at one time.
So I’m sure you can imagine our delight when a jeep load full of men arrived from the village of Pakak. 18 men volunteered for the day to get all of the cement poured in one shot.

Thank you guys! We couldn’t have done it without you!

Ground Breaking News

28 04 2011

We started construction on the new Abundant Grace of God Maternity Center! I am in amazement at God. When we opened five years ago I never would have dreamed that we’d be able to build our very own clinic. We are so thankful for GDH (Samaritan’s Purse Germany) partnering with us to make this happen. We are still raising money to finish the purchase of the adjacent lot (where we dream of putting a seminar hall). We hope to have the new clinic up and running by Christmas. Keep checking back here for details on how it is all going.

A New Clinic – Could It Be True?

1 04 2011

Since opening in February 2007 we have delivered almost 800 babies free-of-charge. We have outgrown our current location and are planning the building of our very own clinic. We have found a piece of land that is 5 minutes down the road and have put a down payment on it. It is in a beautiful spot just off the main road and surrounded by rice-fields. In an amazing turn of events Samaritan’s Purse Germany who sent Claudia to visit us in November of last year, has agreed to help us with the building costs! Now all we need to do before we can begin construction is to complete the purchase of the land.

The total cost of the 700 square meter lot is $22,000USD. We have already raised $12,000USD. We need another $10,000USD. If you are interested in being a part of this building project please email me directly for more details at gthemidwife@yahoo.com.

I will keep you updated here on how the fund raising is going. Please keep this project in your prayers.
