One more year has passed, and we are moving closer towards our goal. Thank you all for keeping us in prayer during the past year of 2018. We also need your prayers for 2019!
We have submitted the plans to the Haifa municipality building construction department and followed, as required by law, by publishing the plans to the public in three newspapers and a street-notification of construction attached to the Ebenezer Home fence, announcing that here will be a new building project. It was also published to the neighbors and in the neighborhood, to give them the opportunity to file objections, if they had any, against the Nursing Ward construction. This time-period is now over. Except for one neighbor, no one brought any objections against the project. Please pray for this specific issue that it would be resolved without any further implications.
From here we move onto making minor changes that were required by the municipality. Please pray as well that these changes will be approved and no further changes would be required.
2018 was a very intensive year for making contacts and bringing awareness among different churches and organizations concerning the project. From traveling through Switzerland, Germany, Holland, and the USA, we received positive reactions for the nursing ward support. The plan is to continue raising awareness about the project in 2019; we pray for many more supporters to join us this coming year. Pray with us for this.
Thank you all for the encouraging words and letters that many of you have sent us this past year. We greatly appreciate them!
May this year new year be to the glory of God!
