Please Consider…

As Christmas is approaching and you are buying gifts for your loved ones, would you please consider helping out with a need that will bless many children. We are in DESPERATE need of a new generator. Honestly the power situation here in Nigeria is terrible, a lot of the time the city doesn’t give us power and when they do it isn’t long enough to really fully charge our inverters.  Also a good percentage of the time they give it is during the day, when we don’t really need it as much because there is the sunlight. We do have a couple small generators, but they don’t work as well as the big gen and don’t charge the inverters properly. Over time the small generators will destroy the inverters. Dayo has personally spent far too much money trying to fix the current big generator, and it’s blown again. We are wasting so much money on repairing this big generator all the time, but we NEED it. We need it for lights, for refrigerators and freezers, for pumping water, etc. It’s an issue that people don’t face abroad and is taken for granted, but here it’s reality. There have been times when we have no power and I will be cooking in the dark using a flashlight to see. There are times we have no water, because we have run out but don’t have the power to pump. So I’m asking you to try to imagine what it would be like to live in an environment where the power is so unreliable and you are trying to care for 20 plus children. Please would you consider this Christmas, spending a little less on gifts and helping make the lives of these children easier? We need $17,000 and have only around $7,000 so far.

Christmas is Coming

“As we approach the month of December, many of us can hear the chimes of  Christmas bells sounding, bringing out smiles and memories that gladden our hearts.  But to many children around the world there is no memory to reminisce  on unless someone creates it; there is no parent to cuddle with; nor are there any special gifts to open.  For these children to experience the norms of Christmas is dependent on strangers like you to provide good memories for their hearts, to create letters to read, gifts to open and appreciate, and a place to call home.  This is REALITY for many orphans and vulnerable children.

Join us this year to make Christmas a wonderful and memorable experience for the children we care for at CHIPROM.  Donate at www.chiproms.com , visit our blog at https://chiprom.wordpress.com, send cheques to 263 Mapleton Ave, Barrie, Ontario, Canada L4N 0E4,  or call the home on 08034053418 or 08054154722″.   Share the love of Christ today by caring for the children He loves so much!!
