Building with Rejected Stones

These are the families and churches that made substantial donations specific to our orphanage, Casa de la Abuelita in calendar year 2013. These names now represent part of our Founders Wall. Each tile represents a minimum of $1,000.00 that will be applied to purchase the property. Currently we have an agreement to pay monthly rent with the amount coming off the purchase price, and we have agreed to make annual lump sum payments over the next 10 years.

Each tile purchase helps secure our mission as it is applied directly to the note. Every thousand dollars we pay off gets us a step closer to securing this property free and clear, to  provide a safe haven for children who were abandoned and rejected.

We believe that God will build with these rejected stones, using each child that will now gain a story of redemption to expand and further his Kingdom. We stake our lives here.

This is where the 4 center tiles will permanently hang that proclaim our logo and our mission:  Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. -James 1:27

We move forward in faith, knowing full well that God will prompt many of you to purchase tiles and fill up this wall. He has placed us here for this purpose, at this time, and it is no mistake that you read this now. 

We are His children. He has adopted us and called us His sons and daughters. We were once lost… and now we are found. This is our religion. This is our purpose. It is time that we love our neighbor as ourselves… we fulfill our birthright and we look after people in their distress.

It's a big wall. We have big plans. We think your name belongs here. Changing the lives of children… for generations.

This is your open door.

Do you see that angled wall on the left? That is our Founder's Wall. Tiles will be going up this week. We need your name there. Partner with the Shepherd family. Designate your funds "Casa de la Abuelita" Tile Project. You can give as a lump sum, or in installments.

Then come and see the mission. Come and hold a child. Come and see this mission that you have made possible.

 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.
-James 1:5-7
