A little progress goes along way…

Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.

A dream can go a long way! Here are some pictures to prove that;) Today’s post is going to be a little different, there will be more pictures taking you to the Village of Hope in Ghana where the children will be moving in next week! It has been such a miracle that we were able to construct this large project in just 2 years! God is faithful… so without further adieu here are some pictures…

(If you missed how this all began read part one and part two . )

Here is the entrance to the property!

These sweet children are our neighbors! They always run out to greet us and love exploring the land whenever we go!

The land had a lot going on… hills, corn fields a lot of trees, so we had to clear it to start the foundation for the buildings.

Just exploring, this photo was taken over what is now a playground! Who would have thought.

Now the land is cleared and flat ready to get the foundation going! These men had the ability to make a steady income and provide for their families these past couple of years.

Our partners and project supervisors in Ghana! Francis on my left and John on my right. These men are like mentors to me throughout this whole process and have helped create this vision. Without the hard work ethic, faith in God and determination to see this vision come a reality we could not have done it! We are so thankful for the two of you!

DSC_0411 My dad and I! He is the absolute best! I don’t know anyone who is as selfless, kind, and hardworking as him. Thank you for believing in me when I spoke about this project from a young age, and thank you for encouraging me when others said it would be impossible! Good think we serve a big God who makes things possible!

My brother on his first trip, now you see a wall around the property.

Wow!!! The first structure is put in place… no more wooden frame foundation, this Village is literally being built from the dirt up.PNN-and-Chapel-Entrance

So we’ve come along way from those hills and corn fields 😉 This is housing block one! The future children’s home. Unlike other Children’s homes PNN has created apartment style homes where 6-8 children will live with a local foster mother in a true home setting! It is ALL ABOUT FAMILY! There are 6 apartments in this housing block!

The housing block! No longer wooden frames, its painted and it is beautiful. God is so faithful in his promises. He gives us the desires of our hearts. This was never my dream or something that anyone could explain that a young girl could speak of doing. God has surrounded me with so many amazing partners and individuals who have been mentors, friends and supporters to make this a reality. And indeed it has! I believe that God had saved this property for this very reason. He knew long before the foundations of this world was created every child’s name that would walk through the gates in here would have a home, and he knew that this is only the beginning for what Project Nyame Nsa can accomplish.
