It is finished!
Those are great words when talking about most things… except maybe a bowl of ice cream. First of all it’s such a relief to remember that the work is finished for our salvation and Jesus didn’t leave anything for us to do. But he has given us other projects that we can work on for other’s salvation and well being. One of those projects has been two and a half years in the making and is now up and operational for God’s glory, the Mission’s infirmary.
Many churches have made huge contributions to this project.
We are coworkers belonging to God. You are God’s field, God’s building. According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master-builder I laid a foundation, but someone else builds on it. I Corinthian 3:9-10
It has been wonderful to see God being the architect, not only of the infirmary but also the lives of the people He brought to lend their expertise and labor. While they were building for Him, He was building them up. Often times he used people who had no skills, but simply a willing heart to do whatever was needed. What’s amazing is that just hours after the last group finished working on the clinic a team of physicians came down from San Diego and had the opportunity to utilize the facilities for the first time, doing echo cardiograms on the kids, staff, and some neighbors.
Often times groups or individuals who are coming down ask how they can help or what kind of projects they can help with. I’m going to take this opportunity to share vision, needs, and prayer requests as it relates to La Mision Para Ninos, (The Mission for Children). These are not our own personal requests. Any contributions should be directed to www.one27foundation.org.
*Nilse needs a CT scan for a better evaluation for her seizure diagnoses. There are always various other medical tests and expenses.
*More than enough money was raised for Sela to have a new chair built (which will be arriving soon. Update soon to follow.) With the extra money we are having a molded chair for Eddie made, but the Mission will have to make up some difference for that. There is a special fund for that through the One 27 Foundation.
*The commercial grade range for the kitchen is showing its age and is falling apart faster than we can keep up with the repairs.
*One of our staff girls is a dentist and we are planning to convert one of the smaller buildings into a dental office for her to serve the kids of the Mission.
*Please pray for rain! We have been in a drought for the last few years.
*We currently have an opportunity to purchase water rights which are needed in order to drill a well on the Mission’s property. The person selling the rights says we can make payment but those are still significant.
*For the last five years a few of us have all had the same vision and desire to build a chaple on the property. A place dedicated to our various church and devotional services, morning worship and otherwise a quiet place dedicated to waiting on our Lord Jesus the Christ.
*God has been answering our prayers for staff. As Christmas approaches some of them will be returning home. Pray that the Lord will put it on the hearts of brothers and sisters to come join us as we continue to serve Him. There are also two family positions available.
Praise be to our Father in heaven for all of the prayers he is answering, and we would also like to thank all of the churches and brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus who are His hands, mouths, ears, feet, and knees. We see His covering every day.
God bless you,
Jeff & Corinne Moody
