It is hard to fathom but it is almost the end of summer. It has been a very busy last few months. Nancy and I returned to the States at the end of June, while our team at HHCR carries on without us seamlessly. They hosted a number of American guests and partners, including a team of College Kids from CA led by Kim Williams. Then Aaron Crider brought a team of almost 30 folks from a couple of churches in Michigan. They all have done a tremendous work for the Ranch and our kids. We love having these “Justice Tours” come our way. Folks that have a passion to see young people who have been trafficked, restored by the love of God.
Nancy and I have been connecting with friends and churches in the States. Visiting with family, we have been to three reunions so far, it is so wonderful. We are thankful for great health and great relationships.
Megan from Kansas just arrived this morning to Cebu for a four month internship. I am sure she is tired and jet lagged, but no doubt thrilled to see this part of the journey come to reality.
We are waiting for Joan and Vern to return to get back to work. They are a retired couple that blessed HHCR now for many years. We are grateful for a contribution of $24000 that is waiting them to help finish our security wall. The gift came from an anonymous donor and we are thrilled. The fence has been waiting completion for a number of years. It will be so great to have our place a bit more secure for the children and staff members.
Our partnership with Convoy of Hope is growing, and this year already we have processed two 40′ container vans full of food. This is enabling us to feed over 2200 children five days a week at their elementary schools. Along with our team of volunteers at each school we are making a huge difference in the well being of young children.
Mission of Mercy continues to astound us as our partnership with them grows and develops. We are currently sponsoring about 1230 children, assisting them and their families. We provide educational assistance, healthcare assistance and spiritual development. It is a terrific fit for us and our local Assemblies of God churches.
Please continue to pray with us for safety and health of all our staff and members. We thank God for each of you.
For the Kingdom,
Glenn & Nancy Garrison
Founding Directors, HHCR
