Just a breif update on our special prayer request (page 3 of the Oct-Nov 2009 Newsletter)…
The talks with the government over the past two days have gone extremely well! There has been a real openness to discuss the proposals of setting up group homes, reintegrating children with their families and also with the training of staff. There appears to be a real need right now in these areas, and the Dominican government is very open to working together with us. Praise God for this open door!
Now after these preliminary talks, lawyers are drawing up documents to be signed and more talks will need to take place before everything is finalized, but we are very thankful for the positive outcome so far!
Thank you for your prayers, and your continued prayers for the work that lies ahead in setting up these projects. May God be glorified in all that we do!
A more formal update will come in our future newsletters.
