About a year ago I was contacted by a guy, Mark Jacobs who said he was with His Chase Foundation. Mark and his wife, Chelsea started His Chase, after loosing one of their children, Chase, before he was born. Take a look at this video to hear the story about Chase (but I am warning you this is a POWERFUL story):
The concept of His Chase is to help provide aid to ministries in Africa that are working with orphans. his Chase works in multiple countries helping kids go to school and many other things. It is remarkable what they are accomplishing.
Mark volunteered to pay for ALL the furniture and most of the supplies for the orphanage! this was a HUGE donation and partnership for us. This past May His Chase donated $22,000 for all of the bunk beds, couches, tables, bar stools, bathroom cubbies, custom shelving, dressers, refrigerator/freezer, stove, study desks, coffee table, single beds, dining room tables, library tables, and for 25 chairs!
The blessing this has had has been amazing. We were able to afford to hire great carpenters and welders in Zambia to do this work. This donation not only enabled us to buy great furniture but gave many Zambians jobs and work to do. Our carpenter had to hire extra hands for such a large order.
Having the money readily available to us was also a major blessing. Sometimes it is hard to have to wait to have funds come in. Having all the money ready for us helped us purchase things much earlier and we were able to buy in bulk which drove down the cost.
Most importantly for me, is that I have new friends who share the passion of helping orphans. It is fun to have friends to call and talk to and work together for the greater cause. We loved working with His Chase and can't wait for what the future has for both of our ministries.
THANK YOU TO ALL HIS CHASE SUPPORTERS AND DONORS!
