Hope For All Children needs your help

Beth Wier, the daughter of Dan & Sheila Wier, is a missionary in the Philippines.  Beth has served in the Philippines since 2011.  She is a member of the Hope For All Children team which operates an orphanage specifically focused on abandoned children, manages feeding programs for malnourished children, and ministers to children who have been rescued from human trafficking.  Beth serves as a house parent to girls in the Hope For All Children restoration home, and she also works with administration for HFAC, including compliance with government agencies and offices.

Hi friends!

We have a very exciting opportunity! Since the Hope House opened almost three years ago, we have been using my vehicle for all of our outings with our three girls. We now have seven girls and can no longer fit everyone into my car! So we are very much in need of a vehicle to be able to transport the girls (and hopefully more girls in the near future!). :)

We have found the vehicle we need, but we need to raise about $32,000 to make the purchase. A very kind and generous anonymous donor has offered to match all donations for a vehicle for the Hope House up to $16,000!  This matching offer is open only through the end of this month.  Would you please pray with us that we can raise $16,000 before the end of February? :)

If you would like to help us by making a donation, and/or if you would like to let others know about how to give, my teammate Crystal has a project account set up to receive donations specifically for the vehicle. Online donations can be made by using this link: https://fire-international.org/missionaries/harden-crystal/.  Click the green “DONATE” button under “Partner With Us”, and type “Harden - Hope House Vehicle” in the comments field. Donations may also be made by check at: FIRE International, Attn: Harden - Hope House Vehicle, PO Box 5306, Concord, NC 28027. Please also be sure to write “Harden - Hope House Vehicle” on the memo line of your check.  (And all donations are tax deductible).  Also, could you let me know if you make a donation so that we can keep track of how we’re doing?

Thanks so much, and thanks for your prayers!!

Many blessings!

Beth


Prayer Request

From Susan Davis

Please be in prayer for my family.  I received a call about an hour ago that my mother passed away peacefully this evening.  I will be traveling to Tennessee in the morning to be with my family and help in preparations for her services.  She has been ill for quite some time and has been under Hospice home care for the past few months.  This was somewhat expected, sad as it is.  Please pray for comfort for my family during this difficult time.  I will provide any details later.  Thank you.

Please continue to hold Caroline Hooker, my son-in-law’s grandmother, in your prayers. A lesion was found several days ago on the front of her brain that is bleeding and it is inoperable. They are moving her to Tranquility this afternoon for 24/7 care. Once they get her stabilized, they will attempt to get her home for home hospice healthcare. They have told her family she probably only has a week or two left. Please pray for comfort for the family as they care for Caroline during this very difficult time. She is the backbone of that family. Thank you.

Please keep Caroline Hooker, my son-in-law’s grandmother, in your prayers. Caroline has been having some problems recently with her hands, forgetfulness and dementia type incidences. She fell in her laundry room and her son took her to the emergency room thinking she may have a concussion from her fall. The hospital did a CT scan and found lesions on her brain. She has been admitted to Wellstar Cobb Hospital for further testing. Please pray for answers, comfort and healing, as well as for her children and grandchildren as they are very concerned about Mawmaw. Thank you.

Update from Susan Davis

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for my daughter. She was discharged from the hospital Sunday afternoon. She did not require the transfusion, but her blood count did fluctuate up and down which concerned the medical team. Once it went back up and remained stable, they were okay with not giving her blood. The ultrasound didn’t show anything significant in her digestive track, so she just needs to take care of herself, eat better and not drink. She was very happy to be going home before Christmas. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she recovers at home. Thank you and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Prayer Request

Please keep my daughter Kristen Ridinger in your prayers.  Kristen has been in the hospital since Thursday morning with acute pancreatitis.  They have feeding her fluids, potassium, magnesium, etc etc to bring her levels back in balance and are running several test and she may possibly need a blood transfusion as of this morning.  Please pray for answers, comfort and healing.  She's been struggling a lot lately with life in general, over working, marital struggles, not eating right, drinking.  All that contributes to stress on your body and mind.  Pray that God gives her strength to know her choices have been what has put her where she is today and that God, counseling and guidance through issues in life can be balanced by making better choices.  Pray for the medical team at Kennestone as well as they continue to care for her.  They have all been great.  Yes, you can pray for her momma too.  Thank you.

Prayer Request

Please be in prayer for the family of Steven Anderson.  Steven committed suicide on Wednesday and his mother, Natalie sent me a message late last night.  Many may remember Steven was a young man in his early 30's who I became friends with through my son's own struggles and he and I wrote letters to each other over a couple of years and I shared my love for God and he shared his struggles with God with me.  I contacted his mother at one point and took her to see him in prison after they hadn't talked in 3 years.  She had no means of transportation to travel the distance.  God put all that together.  My heart is sad today.  I pray that Steven is now at peace as he struggled with a lot over his young life and I pray that he did realize that God loved him, even when he didn't want to accept it.  Pray for Natalie and her family as they deal with the tragedy of his death.  Thank you.

Urgent Prayer Request

Please keep this family in your prayer.  Pastor April forwarded the information below about their terrible struggle right now.  Prayers also for the medical team attending to Leigh and Van and as mentioned below the parents are in a very fragile state, so only God can heal them and guide the doctors on how best to treat them.  Pray for the children (Ava & Piers) as they struggle with not being able to talk to their parents and understand the complexity and seriousness of this terrible tragedy.  Thank you.

Please pray for a family here in Marietta, Georgia. I don’t know them personally, but they are in need of lots of prayers on their behalf. The mother and father (Leigh and Van) where involved in a terrible accident a couple months ago and have been in the hospital fighting for their lives. They were out in their back yard enjoying their outside gas grill and for some unknown reason the gas grill exploded and burned Leigh and Van over 75% on their bodies. Their children (Ava and Piers) were not outside with them, so they are safe. Unfortunately, the children’s’ lives have been turned upside down, due to their parents health issues. The doctor’s have had to keep Leigh and Van sedated, so they don’t feel the pain of their injuries. The children have been staying with relatives and have not been able to talk with their parents yet. It is a terrible tragedy.

Anyway, If you could pass this informationon for prayers for this family, I know that only God can heal Leigh and Van. They are in a fragile health status, so only God can heal them and guide the doctors on how best to treat them.
