Growing with Joy

We thank God for all of you as you have helped City of Joy Rwanda put faith into action!

Already in four short months much as been accomplished: four new classrooms built, four teachers and a principal hired, money raised to build a church and to hire a pastor, and 100% of our students are sponsored in our preschool and elementary school.

We celebrate and say THANK YOU for all God is ALREADY doing!

But our lease is expiring and we sense God calling us to leave our mission house, guesthouse and teachers’ apartments. While we knew this day would come eventually; we didn’t think it would happen quite this soon.

We trust that God will provide. It is just a minor challenge that has caused us to start our next capital campaign a few months early.

We are writing to you to announce the launch of “Growing with Joy” (Psalm 127:1).

Growing with Joy is a $150,000 capital campaign (click here to learn about the 7 projects to be completed with this money) bringing us into our next season of ministry. The great news is that we have already raised $35,000!

Our hope is to raise all funds (or have pledges to do so) by the end of the 2015.

This could be a very stressful time for our family. But God has shown us over and over again that this is HIS ministry and HE will provide! Pray for us as we continue to rely on God each day.

Please contact me directly if you would like more details of the circumstances leading up to this challenge before us (todd.d.ellingson@gmail.com).

God bless you as you help our community in “Growing with Joy”!
