In the Spring we put into motion some great and exciting things for the future. Our friends Brad and Meg from Love Light and Melody partnered with EMI to do some big time planning. Architects, Engineers, designers and dreamers got together to begin a Master Plan for Ileana’s School at Club Esperanza.
They came from all over the world and we spent the week taking measurements, sharing stories from our past working together in La Chureca and the dreams for the future of Ileana’s School. The restrictions of our property and the urban setting we are in came with its challenges. There are so many things that go into creating a master plan that addresses every factor from the roof down to the sewage.
The final product from that week of hard work was an initial design and a full understanding of the dynamics of our property that we have to work with. Now, over these next months EMI will be developing the Master plan for Ileana’s School. There is still a lot of work to do…
So, please be in prayer for this! Pray for the perfect timing of all permissions, for the perfect final design that will meet the needs of the 300 children and their families that we serve every day, and for the funding to build once all the plans are ready!
We are so thankful for all the hard work and time spend down in our little community right outside the Managua dump. There is so much hardship in this neighborhood but Jesus’s light and Joy shines from Ileana’s School! We praise the Lord for that!
Every one of these beautiful smiling faces is a Child of God who is loved…beautifully and wonderfully made! We know God has put us here for His purposes and we will keep fighting hard for these kiddos. Thank you for praying with us and praying for us…and thank you for your financial support. It is a great work to do together!!!
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” -Ephesians 3:20-21
