In one week, we will officially launch our 2021 Building Campaign. It is The Raining Season’s biggest fundraiser each year, and it ensures that the children we serve have shelter as it covers our building rent for one year. On September 12, 2012, our children and staff moved into our current compound consisting of four apartment-style buildings. For the past nine years, our children have been able to call 26D Spur Road home, thanks to the generous support of YOU! Of the three buildings we have called home, we have been at this location the longest. It has provided not only shelter but also stability. It has provided shelter and protection through Ebola and COVID-19. It has welcomed children into our care with open arms.
This year, The Matthew 25 Building Campaign will set a bold goal of raising $55,000 to cover our rent for one year.
Why the Matthew 25 Building Campaign? Matthew 25:34-40 reads, “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you, a stranger, and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
We boldly ask you once again to step in and be the hands and feet of Jesus for our children at The Covering in Sierra Leone. Can you help us care for some of the least of these brothers and sisters of His? We ask that you will prayerfully consider donating to our Building Campaign and helping us meet our goal of $55,000 by August 31st.
Over the next seven weeks, we look forward to sharing what truly makes The Covering special as we work together to meet our goal. We will share weekly updates of our fundraising numbers as we break our BIG goal into smaller pieces.
The Lord is faithful, but this goal is not possible without YOU. Your tax-deductible donation means another year in the place where our kids are loved, nourished, educated, and discipled. How can you help? Pray, share, donate.
