We would like to share some amazing news with you. In April, the Paraguayan counterpart of Serving Paraguay known as Fundación Sirviendo al Paraguay, became an officially recognized foundation here in Paraguay.
As many of you know, the work that Serving Paraguay does takes place on a beautiful 40-acre piece of property comprised of 12 houses, administrative buildings, a farm, and the school facilities. When Shaun and I arrived in Paraguay in 2009, we began the ministry here under a contract with the owners of the property, a Paraguayan foundation called Fundación Ganar.
The view from the ministry property
Over the past four and a half years we have directed the ministries taking place here and watched as God opened doors, touched lives, and blessed our community in amazing ways. Shaun and I had dreamed that someday the property that we were caring for and living on would belong to our foundation, but it was not something that we discussed with many people.
In April, when I advised the secretary of the Fundación Ganar of our success in establishing our foundation here in Paraguay, she expressed her desire that the property be donated to our foundation. After deliberation by the Fundación Ganar, it was decided that they would donate this property and all furnishings to Fundación Sirviendo al Paraguay. We have been in the process of working out all the paperwork to finalize this transfer over the past couple of months. Even in this time, it has been difficult for us to comprehend the reality of this donation. Tonight we finally have the completed property transfer and title in our hands. With God, all things are possible!
Signing to receive the property donation
We want to express our sincere thanks to the Fundación Ganar for this amazing blessing. We do not know all that God will do on this property in the future, but we want to thank Him today for making this ministry possible and for allowing our foundation to receive this land. May His will be done in all things and may all that happens here bring glory and honor to Him!
