  2. 2. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[8/12/2014 10:36:36 AM] To Love & Care for the Children by Bob DeVoe, Lifeline Founder Yes, we are blessed, in so many ways! We're pleased to announce that Pierre Toussaint Fevrier and his wife Marie Magdaline (Paul) accepted the position as our new Grand-Goave Children's Home House Parents! Praise the Lord! They have been active members of our Grand-Goave church congregation for many years and came to us highly recommended. Pierre has respectfully served as a local police officer for eleven years and Magdaline is the daughter of Madam Jean Paul, who faithfully worked in our medical clinic prior to her retirement a few years ago. Sidebar: As they were being shown through the apartment at our new Children's Home last week, I noticed a look of concern on Magdaline's face. It was then I learned that besides their own three children, they also have three "adopted" children. Of course I immediately assured her that we would have room for all of them. Bottom line blessing: God had already instilled in them a desire to love and care for the children! Wow! Yes, we are blessed. Note that Pierre will also be helping by training and oversight of our security personnel. Another Exciting Blessing! by Bob DeVoe, Lifeline Founder Rex & Christine Morey are the missionaries who helped start Living Hope Ministries (LHM) in Tegucigalpa, Honduras 11 years ago. In February, Lifeline was contacted by LHM's stateside Board of Directors. They asked us to explore the possibility of Lifeline assuming the responsibility for their mission because the Morey's had decided to move back to the
  3. 3. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[8/12/2014 10:36:36 AM] United States. Prayers continued as we sought to ascertain God's will. Additionally, many conversations and meetings took place, including mission site visits to Tegucigalpa, where the LHM Ministry Complex is located, and face to face meetings with both organizations' Honduran leaders. Seemingly, God's will is still being followed. Next, a meeting of the LHM board and Lifeline's executive staff took place wherein, with much prayer and deliberation, LHM, after a unanimous vote, officially requested that Lifeline assume responsibility and ownership of their assets, including their Honduras holdings, to continue the work. It was agreed that with approval of Lifeline's Board of Directors (later approved) and compliance with several "action points" being fulfilled, that the transaction would follow. A detailed "Memorandum of Understanding" was later executed. Note that the action points were: (1) Agreement of Honduran Nationals. (2) Sufficient ongoing contributions; from existing LHM donors to sustain the work. (3) Sufficient ongoing contributions from existing donors; to complete construction of the Ministry Complex. (4) Compliance with appropriate legalities in USA and Honduras. Important note: We still need to positively hear about ongoing support from existing donors prior to arranging an official "transfer/closing" (See points 2 & 3 in above paragraph). This will, prayerfully and hopefully, take place in a few weeks. (Pray!) Now, let's finish with all of this informational and business talk: Here's the good stuff! Lifeline has been given yet another opportunity to participate in Kingdom Building in another place! This time we can even take advantage of a beautiful and well located existing mission complex w/church and training center worth several hundred thousand dollars! We can take advantage of a 150+ person Christian Church body of believers already growing and reaching out to the lost! We can take advantage of a well-trained, experienced and successful ministry staff that loves our Lord.... And, perhaps most important of all; this transfer will allow a well- established and vibrant Kingdom Building Work to successfully continue serving our Lord. Please keep this new opportunity in your prayers! The bottom line: God is good, all the time!
  4. 4. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[8/12/2014 10:36:36 AM] Praises Haiti J.D. Hite, Lifeline's Connection Director, just returned from Haiti after two groups of exploration trips. Lifeline's MEET teams are a great way to see the ministry and find new ways to partner while experiencing your churches impact on Haiti. Contact J.D. for more information about bringing your mission ministry members or staff on a trip. The grass roof is finished and received a layered "hair" cut. It's beautiful! (see photo) United States Supporters from Connect Christian Church (Concord, NC) drove 8 hours from North Carolina to bring shoes for shipping to Haiti for distribution during the women's work team. (see photo, which includes Bob & Gretchen DeVoe, Founders) Cindy Garland, author and Lifeline work team member, has released her latest book "How Do I Get Out of this Mess?" with a portion of each book purchase benefiting Lifeline. On August 8 is a special concert and book signing by Cindy and the illustrator; learn more at Cindy's website: www.livinglife4him.com. Prayer Requests Prayers for the cyclists participating in the Ohio to Erie ride as they train and fund-raise. Pray for the peace to continue Haiti as they prepare for their elections this fall.

We recently received this wonderful gift package for the July/Christmas gift deadline. Unfortunately, the gift was missing any identification: sponsor child's name/ID or the sponsor's name/account number. Without these vital pieces of information, this gift won't get to the right child! If this is the gift you sent for your sponsored child, please contact Lovelink@Lifeline.org. We want to ensure that your gift gets to your sponsored child! Your Partnership Additional ways that you can support and learn more about Lifeline... Devotion The Game's Over Nobody is a whole chain. Each one is a link. But take away one link and the chain is broken.
  6. 6. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[8/12/2014 10:36:36 AM] Nobody is a whole team. Each one is a player. But take away one player and the game is forfeited. Nobody is a whole orchestra. each one is a musician. But take away one musician and the symphony is incomplete... You guessed it. We need each other. You need someone and someone needs you. Isolated islands we're not. To make this thing called life work, we gotta lean and support. And relate and respond. And give and take. And confess and forgive. And reach out and embrace. And release and rely... Since none of us is a whole, independent, self-sufficient, superb-capable, all-powerful hotshot, let's quit acting like we are. Lifeline's lonely enough without our playing that silly role. The game's over.
