Newsletter December 2013

I’ve uploaded our latest Newsletter. Please go to “Newsletters” to read our December News. Or click here http://destinyhouse.org.za/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Newsletter-December-2013.pdf

In the last few months we placed two little boys in families! As I write this today, one of our little girls is reunited with her father. We are so pleased to see this happen!

We firmly believe that families are the best place for a child to grow up. Although we try to create as much of a family structure at Destiny House as possible, nothing can compare with being in a small family unit. We’ve seen such amazing change in our boys Caleb and Mongezi as they have bonded with their (new) families.

The school holidays have started! We have quite a few exciting activities and parties planned! Please pray for our children that they will have a great time.

Newsletter September 2013

I’ve just uploaded our September Newsletter under the tab “Newsletters”. Enjoy!

Yesterday we welcomed the WA ladies from Mtubatuba to Destiny House. The children spent a lovely time with the ladies decorating cupcakes and reading books together!

What a blessing to be part of a community that wants to be involved with the orphans and vulnerable children! A big Thank You to the WA ladies!

Sponsor a Brick!

Employees of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife come to give their gifts to Destiny House

It’s amazing to see that gifts have started to stream in for our “Sponsor a Brick” Campaign.

High school students in Australia are selling African animal print cupcakes. Another Australian initiative involves selling re-usable Christmas gift bags (see the Bags2Bricks link on our Facebook page). So far they have raised money for 2530 bricks!

Locally, gifts have come into our bank account after presentations and we have received money from flyers in local shops. Two days ago, we had a wonderful time at a yearly function of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, the organization that looks after the nature reserves in this area. When we shared the story of Destiny House, people were visibly touched and gave generously while praying and singing. We received R6000, which is the equivalent of 1200 bricks!

We are very grateful for people’s financial support, but even more so for the lasting impact it has on people’s hearts. The more people care about looking after orphaned and abandoned children, the more children will be reached and the more lives will be changed!

 

 

Update on Building Project

Time for a little update on our Building Project!

The building plans have been finalized and are now with the Mayor of Mtubatuba. She has kindly offered to pay the application fees for the plans to be approved. We are currently still waiting for the approval. Please pray for this to come through quickly!

Once the plans have been approved we will be able to start building quite soon. An NGO called “Why Not Africa?” has offered to manage the building process for us and is even sponsoring the entire roof! In the meantime our ‘Sponsor a brick’ campaign is gaining publicity in Mtubatuba. We have held presentations in schools and women’s groups and more and more businesses are spreading our flyers.

We would greatly appreciate any support you can give us. We obviously need funds and material to build, but we also will need volunteers to roll up their sleeves and join us for work parties. We will keep you updated on the progress and the dates for the work parties!

We would love for this project to become something that brings the community of Mtubatuba together. Where young and old, rich and poor and different churches and businesses work together to make a difference in Mtubatuba!
