If among you, one of your brothers should become poor, in any of your towns within your land that the Lord your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart or shut your hand against your poor brother. Deuteronomy 15:7
I believe God is calling us to start a search for “The 100”. That is 100 individuals, organizations or businesses, or groups of people who band together to give or raise $1,000.
The $100,000 raised by “The 100” will provide us with enough money to put a down payment on our land (we have a site chosen), place 12 months of mortgage payments in savings for emergencies, renovate the existing buildings to start housing people immediately, and build the infrastructure for the undeveloped land.
“The 100” will have their name and photos permanently placed on the walls at our gated area, so every time our residents come and go, they will see the names and faces of the people who sacrificed to provide them with shelter and a new start in life.
If you are one of “The 100” who feel called to personally support our first Village in Cherokee County with $1,000, please contact us to meet with you and pick up your check.
If you feel called to band together with people at your work, church, or with friends and family to raise $1,000, please contact us to provide you with marketing materials to make the fundraising easier. If you can find 10 people to give $100, you will have reached your goal. Then call us to meet you to collect the monies raised.
We don’t want you to talk anyone into giving. God has confirmed that there are people in Cherokee County to whom He has already given a heart for and vision of this project who have been waiting for a chance to be a part of it, but didn’t know where to start. We just want you to ask those around you if they are the ones to whom God has already given the desire to financially support and serve in this ministry.
If you have any questions, call Penny Haynes at 678-813-0714.
Thank you in advance for joining with us to bring safe shelter and a new start to the thousands of people whose lives will be changed due to your generosity.
