I don’t know if you remember, but my birthday was on October 21st. I had asked for 100 AWANA shirts for my AWANA club kids. I am happy to update you that I received donations for exactly 100 AWANA shirts. Not 99 or 101 but exactly 100!!

Do you remember Mosun? She was a partially blind HIV patient with Spring of Life. We had discovered that the eye drops that she had been using were finished and she didn’t have money to buy more. They had really helped her vision and it had been months since she last used them. We had asked for a $50 donation so she would have eye drops for 1 year. God answered and she has eye drops for one year now.

Do you remember the story of Toyin? Toyin went from an abandoned child to restoration with his father and then restoration with his mother. They are all together now in the family house, Praise the Lord. Click Toyin to be taken to the blog on him. We have not found a sponsor for him yet so if you would like to sponsor a child it is $35 a month and you can email me at Patrice.Miles@sim.org

We also have an update on our one time donation campaign for our transition to Jos. We started our campaign with the #GivingTuesday which raised almost $10,000 that day for our ministry in Nigeria. Later my husband created this beautiful blue pie chart. As you can see the updated chart shows that God has really been speaking to people all around the world to support our ministry in Nigeria. Click one-time to be directed to the site for a one time donation.

The last update we have for you is on our monthly support. We had sent out a blog informing everyone of our loss of three large monthly supporters totaling $1,500 a month starting January 2017. We have been praying and praying for this need to be met. We are still in need of $1,450 a month in monthly supporters. Please pray about it and consider signing up by clicking monthly to support our ministry in Nigeria monthly.

Lastly, just this week we’ve received word that the children have passed their entrance exams and have been fully accepted into Hillcrest international School. Cason will start 9th grade and Jolie 6th in August later this year. This school has a rich history with SIM missionaries and is one of the best international schools in all of West Africa. We know and fully expect that this will prepare them for college anywhere in the world or any next steps in life that the Lord has in store for them. Thanks so much to Katie Riddle who has been teaching them over the last couple of years to prepare them for this next step!
