Dear Friends:

“Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.”  ~ Psalm 37:4

God wants us to spend time in His presence; He does not expect us to work through the difficulties we have in our lives on our own. How awesome is that!

Please Pray:
~ for our girls to recognize the joy of this Scripture, and seek Him for all that they desire.

~ for our girls to enjoy their summer break, while continuing to work on their goals, which will lead them to fulfilling God’s purpose and plan for their lives.

~ for the girls/families God desires to take part in this program in the Fall, that He will touch their hearts and bring them through our doors.

Praise God:
~ We are excited to share with you that our 2017 Capital Campaign has been very successful! Therefore,

1) We are proceeding with the purchase of a new HVAC system for the school, and are working diligently to complete this project over the summer months. See our note below about the need for helpers with this project.

2) It looks like we will be opening a Jr. High Girls Home for the 2017-18 school year. Watch for details to follow!

It is pure joy to watch God answer prayers, as we trust Him to lead and guide us every step of the way!

We are in need of a couple of more staff for the 2017-18 school year, and hope you will help us spread the word. We are looking for a full-time, live-in House Mom and an intern to come alongside of our Home staff. Anyone interested can contact us at 262.275.6466 or go to our website, www.AgapeHouseHeals.org, and download the application.

Blessings . . .

Jan

Please pray for:
~ the Jr. High Girls’ Home we are hoping to open this Fall, that we know if this is God’s plan, and for Him to bring us the necessary staff for this expansion of services, as well as the 7th and 8th grade girls to take part in this program.
~ the girls to continue to seek Jesus as their Lord and Savior in their lives; they are all at different levels with this process.
~ for the girls to continue to work hard these next 2 weeks on their PACEs in school, as well as on their
homework for their counseling!
~ relationships to take place in a new way between the parents and their daughters.
Praise God for:
~ the progress the girls have made in being less fearful and trusting God!
~ the blessings that continue to pour forth regarding activities for the girls in the Home: they went fishing recently with friends of Agape on Lake Geneva, and they attended a Brewer’s game this week. These outings/activities are so important for the girls living in the Home.
~ for the grant received from Alliant Energy Foundation in the amount of $3,000 to assist with the continuing “education and counseling of young women at-risk so they may find healing and strength as they face a future beyond abuse and brokenness.”
