     We Have Lost Our Funding

Tim & Barbara Downs
Dear Pastor,
A few weeks ago, we sent out a plea for help with some unexpected personal expenses.  A few have responded to this need and we deeply appreciate this.  However, that need must take a backseat to this current issue.  For the last 10 years, The Global Orphan Project has been the majority sponsor of The Bethesda Home in Toumodi, Ivory Coast.  They have decided to cease this funding and gave us 90 days to replace this money; we have 53 days left.

We currently have 32 children in our care that are at great risk.  Would you please pray about helping with this critical need.  God has given me peace about this, but the danger is very real.
There are currently 5 young people studying at University that would never have had the opportunity to attend school at all.  In addition to their academic success, they are leaders and teachers in their home church.  All of them putting their trust in Christ while being cared for at The Bethesda Home.
Something for your consideration:  You may already be involved with Manna Worldwide and have a burden for children.  Maybe you could add The Bethesda Home to your Manna projects.  Manna sponsors our Feeding Center in Yamoussoukro and we love the men and women that make up this work.

At the moment, we are $1510 per month short of our goal of $2000 per month.

Please contact me at: if you would like more information.

$25/month will feed a child

Who doesn't love children???  To see them sleeping on cardboard by the side of the market or drinking from the drainage ditches is a heartbreaking thing. The Bethesda Home has made a difference in the temporal and eternal life of many children

$60/mo will provide total care

The war that began in Ivory Coast in 2002 was the catalyst that God used to push us into this ministry.  We have never regretted it and consider it an honor to be associated with these children.
