Philippines: Brand New Day Building Fund
To read more about Brand New Day ministry, go to our main page here!
Right now, Brand New Day is renting two small houses for our residential homes and office. While we are “making do” for the moment, we are not able to grow at all with what is available to rent. What we are renting is not adequate, with not enough bathrooms, laundry space, and recreational space for the children and staff. We believe that for BND to provide better rehabilitation for our children as well as be able to take more kids, we need our own land and building. Please pray with us that God will provide the right place and provide the means to achieve this dream that He has placed in our hearts!
We are praying for a piece of property at least half an acre to an acre (2000-4000 square meters) in size. Our main building would be a two-storey, 5000 sqft structure for a boys’ house, offices, classrooms, and a dorm space for staff and visitors. A full basketball court will be essential to have on the property as well as a play/workout area appropriate for kids and teens. A girls’ home may or may not be on the same property.
We have looked at quite a few potential pieces of property, both close to town (ideal but expensive) and far from town. However, we still need enough seed money to make a reservation, and lots are selling very fast in our area. So we don’t have an exact budget amount, but we are looking at P2 -P4 million (ie $45k-$90k) for the land alone–our first step!
Thank you for praying for us and supporting this project!
