We know that each of you are striving to persevere through the COVID-19 pandemic. We pray daily for the safety of you and your family.
I am writing to you today because we have an extremely serious issue. We have been told since 2004 that the chiller, which provides cool air to the building, would not last through another season. Somehow, it has always made it through. That is, until now. It is summer, the chiller has been declared beyond repair, and it is HOT in the building.
The good news is we have been told that there is a way to get air to our building without replacing the chiller, so instead of having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars, we can have our building cool for approximately $140,000. That is a doable solution. If everyone will help just a little, we can raise that amount. It is almost unbearable without air now. Today our building will be close to 90 degrees on the inside. That is too hot to work or to go to class. If you are in a position to help in any way, any amount will help toward the goal of what is needed. If you are unable to help at this time, we certainly understand and ask for your continued prayers, not just for this repair, but for the protection and safety of all the women and children here at the center.
Thank you so much for what each of you have done in support of this program over the years. Please know how much it has been appreciated.
In His Service,
