Moving Closer to School

Feb 18, 2017 | Fundraiser, In The Loop

We are relocating the orphanage!
Yes, we are moving in order to be closer to the school for the children. Distance in Liberia, and distance in America are very different! Roads in Liberia are hard on the passengers and the vehicle.

Greetings, Friends of New Hope Children’s Village!

Often the roads in Liberia are more like paths or dried up river beds, very bumpy, narrow, deep potholes, and very slow to traverse. A few miles can be a difficult journey indeed.

Over the past several years we have done what is necessary and by your generosity and God’s grace have joyously been allowed to take the children to and from their school; but, yes, it comes at a price. By moving the orphanage, we will be able to avoid the daily expense and hardship of commuting such a far distance to their school and to the church that they attend, ‘Voice of Victory’.

Marie is searching for a place even now! We know God has one picked out that will be just wonderful, and all we have to do is find it!

We will incur several expenses and we need your help. I am sorry to always have to ask, but you are our only revenue source. We raise children, not produce. We have no way of funding the orphanage by any means other than faith and trust that God will continue to show us mercy by your generosity.

We anticipate that the move and first year deposit will cost about $4,000. For us, that is a huge sum of money, but God gave us a truck, which seemed impossible. God gave us bunk beds, which is only a dream come true, God has given us you, the ones we have not even met yet, and God has given us his son, the greatest blessing of all!

If you can help, and I we are praying that you can, please do so quickly. You have done so much already, thank you for considering our immediate need.

Always serving,
Myer and Marie Torbor
Glory to God
