Greetings to all of you back home . Click on the "Breaking News" link above for a short video update. If you have watched the video than you know that we have gone forward with the purchase of the ranch! We are thankful for all of you that have made this happen through prayer and financial support. You guys are the ones that have mede this happen. Thank You so much!
We are really really excited because our home church, WMBC is sending us a team to begin construction on one of the buildings on site. They are running a fundraiser for this project right now are will be accepting and receipting funds for the project until March 2, 2014.
Here is a memo from our church:
GO Fundraiser - Feb. 16 & 23
God has provided 57 acres of land for Brian & Clarissa Krahn's orphanage
(Ancla de Amor) in Mexico! Our goal is to raise $40,000 to go towards
several building projects, including renovating and expanding an existing
house, roof replacement, and expanding the washroom facilities. We will
collect financial donations in the foyer on Feb. 16 and have a special
offering during our worship services on Feb. 23. Financial donations will be
accepted until Mar. 2. Please make cheques out to WMBC and designate them to
"Mexico Orphanage". We will also be accepting donations of needed household
items and tools (check your mailbox for a list). The goal is to fill a cargo
trailer, which will be hauled down to Mexico. Join us in helping Brian and
Clarissa make this vision a reality!
We want anyone who is interested in supporting Ancla de Amor to have an opportunity to do so. This is a community project and so WMBC is happy to receipt your donations for this ministry even if you do not attend there. As the memo notes there is also a list of items that we need and WMBC is already loading a cargo trailer to send down here to help us get this ministry up and running. Donations items can also be dropped off at our church and they will make sure that they get down here.
Thank you all for getting us this far! We can already see how Ancla de Amor is going to have a tremendous impact here in Sonora. We already have 3 children in our care with another two possible arriving today. We urgently need to get to our new location and get it up and running. Until the construction project is complete we will have to turn down children and that is not something we want to do. God has brought us to this point and we know that He will continue to provide. If you feel led to give in any of the ways indicated above we personally thank you. Its not for our personal gain, it is for the children that we are responsible for. There are also other ways to get involved. We need teams to come down, we also need child sponsors. Maybe you would like to lead a team down for a work project? Email me! Or maybe you would like to sponsor one of our children through Children of Hope? We can make that happen too! There are so many awesome ways to get involve to help change a life of a child.
If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
God Bless and love from Mexico
Brian & Clarissa
