YOU ARE INVITED.....
PERU CELEBRATION SET FOR MAY 1
Project Restoration will host a "We Love Peru" Celebration and Dinner on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. This event will be held in the Fellowship Hall at Lake Gaston Christian Life Centre in Ebony, Virginia (1411 Robinson Ferry Road, one mile east of the Ebony Fire Department).
The celebration will focus on the wonderful support from area churches, businesses, individuals and groups (including Saint Paul's College SIFE Team and the Southside Combined Choir) that led to the completion of a new home for the Nancy Cole Women's Home in Lima, Peru. You will see pictures of the ministry at the home to the desperate women and teen girls of Peru. Various groups will present updates of the current status of this ministry and plans for the future, including a Mission's Trip from this area to Peru in August and exciting new training programs at the home.
There is no admission to this event. Each family is asked to bring one main covered dish and one side dish/dessert. We will provide authentic Peruvian food for you to sample.
If you need further information, contact Dale or Sheryl Baird at 434-636-2808 or access www.projectrestoration.net. You are encouraged to participate in this celebration event.

The Nancy Cole Women's Home in Lima, Peru is alive and well. Pastor Lilliam, who has been on a leave of absence due to health reasons, is resuming the directorship of the home on Tuesday, October 26, 2010.
We thank the transition team, headed by Dr. Nancy Tolentine and provided by Camino de Vida, for their work during the transition time. We toured the facility today, met with the residents, and talked with them concerning the future plans for this ministry.
The home will now be under the covering of Project Restoration. The final meeting of the Camino de Vida Board will be held on October 26. Camino de Vida will no longer provide any oversight or support for the home. A new Board of Directors will be appointed this week and the governing policies, including the new Document of Goverance and mission statement, will be developed. All assets of the home, including building and contents, will be trasferred to Project Restoration and will be handled by the new Board of Directors. New intake procedures will be developed and implemented. The goal is to raise the number of residents to 20-25 by Christmas.
One of the significant challenges will be raising an adequate budget to operate the home. Your prayers and support are needed so that the number of residents can be quickly increased. There are many girls and women who need this intervention.
Several major maintenance issues will need to be addressed, including hot water access, painting, carpet replacement in the rec room, and ceiling tile replacement projects. An itemized list will be posted. If you can bring a team to work at the home, or if you can provide funds to assist with these projects, we will help you facilitate that process.
Pray for the following residents of the home (first name and age):
1. Elizabeth - 46
2. Wendy - 27
3. Julyssa - 27
4. Carmen - 22
5. Susy - 16
6. Aracellie - 15
7. Fiorella - 14.
We will keep you updated as new developments occur. Plan a visit soon to the Nancy Cole Women's Home.
