Please forgive our silence! The past few moths have flown by in a whirlwind of activity and blessing for MCV… It would be very difficult to try to communicate it all, but allow us to share two very recent testimonies!
Early in April, MCV started having issues with our water pump. Water was not reaching the House of Victory and the pressure was very low everywhere else. Since two of the directors were on a vision awareness campaign in America, the remaining missionaries (two ladiesJ) were trying to solve the problem with limited knowledge and funds. Being full of faith, the staff prayed for a solution…..and he came riding up on a motorcycle! A local pastor from a church in White River had passed MCV several times always wanting to stop. Gloriously, Pastor Harm pulled into the gate just as our staff was ready to give up. During his tour, he asked about the problem and offered help in getting the water pump fixed.
Over the next month, the water pump was fixed but broke down and fixed but broke down again. Pastor Harm spent many days tracking down parts and investigating the breakdowns. MCV finally ran out of water completely and we had to bring water in from outside the center. On the first day of the shortage, Pastor Harm was having breakfast with a local businessman and he shared about MCV and our water issue. The businessman instantly offered to buy a new water pump and pay for the proper installation! Within the day, the new pump was installed. After a few hiccups with electrical issues and water pressure problems, the water started flowing in abundance!!!
The flood of blessings has continued. This Sunday, Pastor Harm’s church, White River Baptist, blessed MCV with a beautiful service, Bible presentation for our youth, and love offering and gifts of food/clothing/treats for the kids. It was an amazing time together as we all rejoiced in the goodness of Jesus Christ and His provision!
In the midst of the water crisis, MCV hosted a precious couple from the states, Jim and Kathy Weber and a young lady from their church, Sarah. The Webers have been an amazing blessing to MCV from the dream stages in 2007. After a horrible tragedy in losing their son, Kathy felt God speak to her three times “Feed my sheep.” This led to a generous love gift to help open MCV and the couples prayerful involvement ever since. Another dream given to Kathy was to provide new signs at MCV. With very limited time, the beautiful and professional new signs were designed and installed (something we thought would take weeks only took 3 days)!
MCV is so grateful for amazing people like these who have joined hearts and hands with our big family. May God continue to shower down His love and kindness on MCV and all who make this amazing family possible!
