Thank you very much for your gift to Bethlehem and also to the Love Hope
Foundation. Our building fund drive has passed the five million NT mark so far, and
more funds are coming in every day. My main concern now is that funds will go
into the building program and we will not have enough funds to keep Bethlehem
Foundation going. We need support for both programs. Please understand.
One big gift came in recently from a donor who lives in Taipei, but whose home
is in Hsueh Jia. It was for one million NT. Wow. What a wonderful gift. Now all
we need is 87 gifts like that. We have to wait until our evaluation by the government
of our Social Welfare work and then we can have a ground breaking ceremony. The
evaluation will ta ke place on September 29 th. Our Kindergarten Program will also
be evaluated the following afternoon. So we will be busy.
Our elevator is in, but we still need some time to add the amenities, such as
painting and tiling the structure and putting in a lightening rod. It is the tallest
structure on our property and we need to protect ourselves from lightening.
In this issue of our Newsletter you will find a number of articles by our staff
members and the work they are doing to help our students . Thirty four of our
students have graduated and we have more than twenty others coming in to take their
places. More children will sign up in the coming weeks.
Peace and best wishes to each one of you. We love you all. May God bless
you with good health and happiness in the coming months.
