(scroll down for progress on the WINNER HOME FOR AT-RISK GIRLS)
Matthew 19:14 – But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Better put, babies with babies. The reason I say this is that most of these PureHeartBabies’ mommies are babies themselves. And their mommies were still babies when they had them.
A visiting missionary reprimanded me. She told me that I was wrong in helping unwed moms because I was rewarding their bad behavior. I asked her what she would suggest that I would do? She could not tell me anything reasonable. Glad she was just passing through.
Lately I have had the same conversation with animal lovers. I have two dogs. I have had pets all my life. But when someone tells me I should be feeding the stray dogs as well as the hungry children, something is off.
A. I am only a little old man, I can only do so much, hahaha
B. We are here for the children, the money we have goes to the kids.
C. If they want the stray dogs to be fed, they are more than welcome to feed them. hahaha
Arguments like this, though, show a state of our heart, and how far we have actually fallen. I am not down here for feed dogs. I am not down here to teach the moms about birth control. Well, actually I am, because I am teaching them about righteousness, to get married before having babies, stuff like that. But the bottom line is, the babies are here. Sadly people seem to care less and less about babies. I am flabbergasted that mommies let their little girls and boys come to the feeding lines naked, with their little ribs sticking out. My heart grieves for these kids at night. Literally, my heart breaks so bad for these kids that I have to get out of bed and pray. I have no idea how people can not be concerned for them. Especially in the night.
Lamentations 2:19 Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of every street.
We are trying to figure out a way to rescue some of them.
Thank you for helping us to help them.

—–PROGRESS ON THE WINNER HOME—–
WELL, WE COMPLETED STEP TWO! NOW WE HAVE THE STORAGE-WAREHOUSE FIGURED OUT, NEXT PHASE, STEP 3 WILL BE THE FUNNEST (SP?) FIXING UP THE ROOMS FOR THE KIDS. THAT STILL DOESN’T MEAN THAT IT’S A GREEN LIGHT THOUGH.
It’s all about finances. The will is there (both ours and the Lord’s as expressed in His written Word). However, we need a drastic increase in funds (over and above our already existing ministry expenses, which is a lot!) to make the necessary additions and improvements BEFORE we can even present it to the government. If we are destitute, the government would be crazy to let us bring in kids to live with us, and I don’t blame them.
We will need more staff (minimum 2 full time employees more) to do this (by law and for Winnie’s and my legal protection). We also need to show (1) sufficient income perpetually, avg over the past three months, about double what we are bringing in now. (2) An adequate vehicle. (3) A Nice quarters for the children to live in.
We need to ‘sell’ this dream to the skeptical government WHO WILL DO A RIGID INSPECTION. Some of these types of ‘homes’ in the past have made for bad reputations. The government has good reasons to be cautious. The philosophy ‘bring in the kids and the money will follow’ is reckless, dangerous, exploitive and presumptuous. Good for movies on television, not for real life on the mission field though.
Our goal WAS to have kids living here by my birthday in June 21, but it’s NOT realistic. That was my date, but maybe not God’s. That’s the day I am officially retired according by social security standards. Lord willing I will be getting $1,290 a month, so that will really help PureHeart to step up the game. Retirement is a worldly term to me, not a Christian term. I will take the retirement money to help, not stop this labor of love.
We need large donations of money, materials and labor to get the home ready. We also need a different vehicle, and a steady increase in donations to provide for 5 or six more people (basically another young family).
STEP 1 is COMPLETED! Praise God!
STEP 2 is COMPLETED! Praise God!
*Before we progress we have a lot of minor repairs and painting to do. If you know of any handymen who want to come down let us know.*
Step 3. Making into a large dormitory (or two small dorms) for the girls.
4. We just found out by government that we will need a larger vehicle. Our 14 year old tucscon is on it ‘s last leg, and won’t legally hold Winnie and I and 5 girls. So we have to have a van.
Once all of that is done we are ready to bring in the little girl toddlers. Pray with us in the selection process of which little girls we will bring in. It will take time and we need to raise a lot to of money to do this (est overall expenses will be a little over 17,100 dollars PLUS 15,000 for a good used van, and also keeping on paying our 4000+ p/m basic operating expenses which will increase with housing 6-7 more people when the construction is completed) That needs to be another $1000 a month permanently. (so we need a steady month donation base of $5,000 a month)
Thats what the Lord we believe showed us, but we are always open to opinions and advice! Like I said, we could be wrong, but that’s the feeling that we get.
thank you once again!

Mateo 19:14 – Pero Jesús dijo: no les impidáis venir a mí los bebés; porque de los tales es el reino de los cielos.
Mejor dicho, bebés con bebés.
Un misionero visitante me reprendió. Ella me dijo que estaba equivocada en ayudar a las madres solteras porque estaba recompensandolas por su mal comportamiento. Le pregunté qué sugeriría que hiciera, ella no podía decirme nada razonable. Me alegro de que ella estaba paseando solamente.
Últimamente he tenido la misma conversación con los amantes de los animales. Tengo dos perros. He tenido mascotas toda mi vida. Pero cuando alguien me dice que debería estar alimentando a los perros callejeros, así como a los niños hambrientos, algo está mal.
A. Soy solo un viejito, no puedo hacer tanto, jajaja
B. Estamos aquí por los niños, el dinero que tenemos va a los niños.
C. Si quieren que los perros callejeros sean alimentados, son más que bienvenidos a alimentarlos. jajaja
Argumentos como este, sin embargo, muestran un estado de nuestros corazónes, y hasta qué punto hemos caído realmente. No estoy aquí para alimentar perros. No estoy aquí para enseñar a las mamás sobre el control de la natalidad. Bueno, en realidad lo soy, porque les estoy enseñando acerca del pecado, a casarse antes de tener bebés, cosas así. Pero la conclusión es que los bebés están aquí. Lamentablemente las personas parecen preocuparse cada vez menos por los bebés. Estoy con la boca abierta cuando las mamás dejan que sus hijas y niños vienan desnudos a las líneas de alimentación. Mi corazón se aflige por esto en la noche. Literalmente, mi corazón se rompe por estos niños tanto que tengo que levantarme de la cama y orar. No tengo idea de cómo la gente no puede preocuparse por ellos. Especialmente en la noche.
Lamentaciones 2:19 Levántate, grita en la noche: al comienzo de las vigilidades, derrama tu corazón como agua delante de la faz del Señor: levanta tus manos hacia él para la vida de tus niños pequeños, que se desmayan por el hambre. la cima de cada calle
Estamos tratando de encontrar una manera de rescatar a algunos de ellos.
Gracias por ayudarnos a ayudarlos.
