It's a beautiful New Year’s Day

Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day..."

Happy New Year to all my WorldHope Corps friends!

I hope you're not working on New Year's Day and that you will relax and have some fun!

I wanted to share this post of appreciation at the beginning of this new and beautiful day. 

Most of all, I just want to tell you how much I appreciate you: your gifts and graces, love and support, long-time friendship, and good work in behalf of WorldHope Corps in 2017.

Just two months ago, the cupboards were bare; we had accounts payable and unfunded projects. You responded to the need, made donations and spread the word. Today, all our debts are paid, last year's projects paid for, and we're whole again!  And most (though not all) of our projects are funded for 2018!

Our Water Store in Uganda is back in business, pumping out clean, filtered water for over 5,000 people, and its funded for 2018.   We have another village well to drill in Malawi----#66!  The Shalom Farmers in Uganda are praying for a good harvest this Spring, free of draught and infestation. Our Mosquito Net distribution fund has $3,000 for more nets. And Dennis Singini's salary (as Program Director of WorldHope Corps Malawi) is secure for 2018!

We still need to raise more funds for Mosquito Nets ($7k), Hope Scholarships ($3k), Women's Empowerment/HIV/AIDS training in Malawi($6k); as well as a second round of community development training for Bethany Nursery School in Palestine ($3k).  And I believe we shall.

Here's the link to our Mission Giving Catalog for 2018 to review and share with others:  https://www.northwindinstitute.org/worldhopecorps
Take a look and see if there is another project that warms your heart that you might want to sponsor at some point in the New Year. 

And be sure to keep on singing....

Have a happy and blessed New Year, my friends!
