For some time, we have keenly felt the need to establish separate living quarters for the young boys at Shining Light Children’s Home. We believe this effort will advance the vision we have of providing a better family environment for the boys.
In recent years, we have improvised and made do with facilities available both on and off the premises. However, we believe God is now leading us to build a new house to facilitate and bring this vision to fruition.
If you look at the graph you will see that we have some funds available to start the building project. However, more funds will be necessary to bring the project to completion.
The boys' home will be a 32’x52’ two-story structure with a total of 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a full kitchen on the first floor and kitchenette on the second floor, as well as living areas on both floors. It will feature an 8’ porch on one side and end. It is designed so that it can be used as a single dwelling or as two apartments if needed.
We have an immediate need for a work crew capable of hanging and finishing sheetrock.

The estimated cost of this building project is $90,000 of which there are $25,000 in donations on-hand. There are donors who have committed to matching donations dollar for dollar up to $32,500. In other words, for every dollar donated they will match the donation up to the amount of $32,500 which would give us a total of $65,000. This amount plus the $25,000 we already have would bring our total available funds to the $90,000 needed to complete the project.
Experience has taught us that the boys that come into our care at Shining Light respond much better to teaching and mentoring in a more normal family environment. Seeking better spiritual outcomes for the children that come into our care is our number one priority.
With this goal in mind, we are reaching out to you to help supply the financial means to make this vision a reality. First of all, we covet your prayer support for this vision and project. If you feel led to make a monetary donation, you may do so by visiting the online donation portal.

The boys worked alongside the men as they prepared the property and poured the cement for the concrete foundation. We are so very grateful for a group from Indiana who came to help with the framing of the building, as well as setting the trusses.
