Prayer Items for Raining Hope
I hesitate to say that these are urgent prayer requests as those on my mailing list were all just victims of a hacker that got into my email. But we truly are in need of a miracle right now to take care of the following needs.
I truly ask that you join me in prayer that these funds can be raised. Because of the hacking problem, always know that I will not send you an alternate address or bank account to send funds too. Always question if you get an email like that. When we send out an updated prayer list and you desire to make a donation, the avenue to do so has not changed. Checks may be sent to our office - Raining Hope Inc. - 3451 Foothill Road #206, Ventura, CA 93003. Credit cards can be used on our website only www.raininghope.org We will not ever ask you to wire funds to any other account. If you have any questions before you send a donation, you may contact our treasurer, Carol John at 805-377-7387.
Pray for the financial needs that they would be met. Some funding came in but we are still short...
- NEW HOUSE - We still need to raise a portion of the $3,600 to cover the first 6 months of rent.
- SCHOOL FEES - The children have started school We pay school fees for 31 children. The amount needed for school fees and supplies is $1300. We are still in need of approximately $700 more. There are a couple more children that would would like to help this term.
- PREVIOUS HOME - we need approximately $150 to cover repairs to the old house that we just vacated.
- MONTHLY FOOD/MEDICINE/SUPPLIES - With the cost of rent & school fees being due at the beginning of the year, we are running low on funds for food, etc.
Pray for Pastor Gerald and his wife Ruth as they have just taken over as the new managers of the home. They have just moved into the home in Bukaya. They bring with them their 3 children, Ezekiel, Elisha and Honor. We are excited to have a God-fearing, loving Christian family at the head of our home. They will be able to see Christ’s love in action! Pray for Pastor Gerald as he leads. Pray that he will be godly example of what it means to be an earthly father to children who need His love.

Pastor Gerald sent these words:
“I wish to thank the supporters of Raining Hope for everything that you have done for the children of Uganda. May the Lord continue to open doors for all of you & your families. The children of Raining Hope are so thankful for what you have done for them.”
Pastor Gerald’s note to me that that he knows that God brought us together for a purpose and He will help us to achieve what He has for us in His plans. He said much of that will depend on how we pray to Him. Amen!
“ I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters, making a dry path through the sea.. “But forget all that— it is nothing compared to what I am going to do. For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 New Living Translation (NLT)
