HELP US MEET OUR NEEDS...
The greatest long term help for Gabriel House would be consistent financial support. It is the most flexible and useable of all the blessings that our supporters give us. Find more information here.
There are monthly fees that are required by the Mexican government if we are to stay legal and operable in Mexico. God calls us to obey the laws of the land, so there is no consideration of cutting corners in this area.
The next all important consideration is the children and their many needs. Our pharmacy bill alone is over 1,000 US dollars per month. Our electric bill is also over 1,000 US dollars per month. We spend $500 more than the donations we receive monthly to keep our kids nutrition needs at a quality level by purchasing chicken, fish, cheese, eggs and hamburger.
Payroll to our 30 employees who care for the children 24 hours per day is one of our largest expenses. It is not legal to pay an employee in food or materials.
We use about 200 diapers per day. If those are not donated, we have to purchase them at an average of $1 per diaper.
Praying in the $20,000 we need every single month to meet our minimum needs is not for the faint hearted. It is a constant daily privilege to prayerfully intercede for the financial needs of the children of Gabriel House that Ted and Renie exercise daily at 8:30 am.
Ted and Renie regularly travel to visit churches, send emails to over 500 people, and make phone calls to remind the church at large that Gabriel House is still in existence and in need of support.
Every physical and spiritual effort is being utilized to bring in the resources needed for Gabriel House. Every effort to be excellent stewards of the financial resources donated is being exercised to conserve and bring forth the best results for the children of Gabriel House.
He who has pity upon the poor lends to Jehovah, and He will reward his dealing to him. (Proverbs 19:17)
