Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Tim. 1:6
We praise the Lord that we were able to end 2017 in the black. This has been a tremendous blessing and I wanted to thank all of you for your gifts and prayers.
- This past year we made huge progress in building the new house
- Paid down the debt
- Replaced the decks on Units A, B, and C
We have a busy year planned and Lord willing will continue to “Fan the Flames” of encouragement into the lives of our brothers and sisters in the Lord.
In April, Michael Gay will begin as Director of Operations full time at Siloam Missionary Homes. He and his family will need to raise their support and I would like to encourage you and your church to consider having them come share. I am excited for additional help and this will free me up to travel and share the ministry more.
Update on the 25th Anniversary house
We need laborers!! The weather has been extremely cold, so we have slowed down some. The roof is on, and the windows and doors are almost done. Doug Forbis will be coming soon to shingle the roof. We still have not run out of money so we will keep going.
Some of our Projects for 2018
- Finish the Anniversary House
- Divide the existing conference room in the Family Center into two separate offices.
- Stain the decks on A,B, C,
- Repair and stain decks on Units F and G
- Build a 40 x40 pole barn down at the shop for equipment storage
GAP Year Internships
We are taking applications for interns. This year we are praying for 10 people to participate in our new GAP Year Program (call or e-mail for more information).
We thank the Lord for you, and the wonderful things He continues to do here. God has opened so many doors and brought many new missionary families.
Joyce and I will be traveling in April to Indiana and Michigan and would love to connect with you. We are praying that the Lord will raise up 5 new churches this year and more monthly support. To met this year’s budget, we need approximately $2,200 additional monthly support. God is able and we look to Him.
God bless all of you as we minister together to provide “a place missionaries call home.”
In his service,
Larry & Joyce George
