Desperate for House Moms
We're are getting SO close to taking in kids. We have made a lot of progress the last few months with the Honduran Social Services. Awhile back we turned in our application and operational plan to be a Kid's Home. They've sent things back for editing a couple times, but we're almost, almost done with this legal process.
So far we've undergone two Social Services inspections of our place and both have gone well. The first was from the national headquarters, who will approve us a Kid's Home. This inspection ended up happening the day our son Josiah was born and we missed it! But even though we weren't there, our board member Gerald and right-hand-man David did an excellent job of showing our place and explaining our vision. Then in March we had a second inspection from a regional branch of Social Services. With this inspection we will be able to receive kids from the government home in San Pedro Sula.
Now we're down to needing House Moms. We feel that the role these House Moms play will be so crucial in the lives of our kids that we don't want to hire anyone haphazardly. We feel it is a serious responsibility of ours to find the right people. Jason recently traveled around Honduras making connections with seminaries and community leaders looking for people. This weekend we will be interviewing two potential women and a couple. Please pray with us that we find the RIGHT people to care for the kids from the start.
