Newest Hope Project!

Baby boy and mama were released from the Maternity Center yesterday!

Thanks to education and encouragement from the midwives there,
especially Melinda (pictured above),
mom is successfully breastfeeding and baby boy is gaining weight!

Arriving home was bittersweet for Momma.

She was so happy to see her other children and family members.

Yet at the same time, saddened to see the storm damage to the house she lived in again.

And remember, this tree hit her in the back!
She has a broken tail bone but doctor's say will heal fine.

Invest Hope is interested in helping this family rebuild their home.
Helping. Not completely doing.
There are no men living in the house but they have cousins and nephews and friends willing to help.

Would you like to help us with funding this Hope Project?

Honestly their house was not well built in the first place. They constantly experienced leaks and had several large holes in the walls where rodents could come in pretty easy.

There are 2 adult women, an elderly grandmother and a handful of children, including Baby boy in this household.

We are using this building project as a tool to show the love of our heavenly father to them and the Hope they have if they give their lives to him!

Donations for this Hope Project can be sent to:
