Haven of Hope Expansion Project


We are excited to announce Phase II in the expansion of our orphanage in the Philippines. Due to the amazing success of this ministry we find that we need more space. This new wing will connect to the main building, using existing space on our property. The main building is not shown in the drawing, it is to the right of the new building. This will provide space for more orphans and also act as a guesthouse for people & teams who come to work with the orphans. 

The budget is US$33,000. One of the Sower's faithful donors, has committed to fund the furnishing of it if we can get it built. This is a promise of around US$8,000 that would make it fully functional.

Would you join in praying for the funding of this project? Or maybe you would like to help to fund it or any part of it. If a person would like to donate this building as a memorial to a loved one, we are happy to dedicate it to that person. We have done this in the past and it is a joy for us to remember God's faithful in this way.

Feel free to contact Gwynn Lewis if you would like more information. 


Thoughts from Jason Lewis


Now the word of the Lord came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me."

What a great way start the day! Could you imagine? Just waking up and having the word of God come to you. I’m not talking about a general sensation that God is there, or some warm feeling of comfort or love (nothing wrong with those). But I’m talking about an undeniable, unmistakable word from God, command form verbs from the Creator of the Universe, ARISE! GO! CRY OUT! This is what Jonah woke up to one morning, the word of God, clear and specific. God told him where to go and what to do. God even included why. I am convinced that as Christians we have all been there, we have all heard clearly and specifically God tell us to go somewhere and do something. I am also convinced that as Christians there are some of us today that are longing for the word of the Lord to come to us again. Maybe it’s been a while since you have heard a command so clearly. You might even be praying and asking for direction, only to be left mystified by the silence. You might even seek the help of friends, “please pray for me, I’m having trouble hearing God’s voice clearly”. Well what we can learn from Jonah’s story is that once the word of the Lord comes to us, it will also depart from us if we don’t obey. Jonah disobeyed the word that had come to him so clearly, then He didn’t hear the word of the Lord again until the fish spit him out on the beach and he was headed in the right direction again. God didn’t talk to Jonah anymore, because He knew Jonah wasn't listening. He had to use a storm and a fish, even some non-believers! My encouragement to you is that if you are having trouble hearing the voice of the Lord, you need to retrace your steps. You need to go back as far as it takes, to get to that spot, the last time the word was with you, the last time God spoke to you clearly and specifically and you knew that it was God. Then you ask yourself, “Did I do what God told me to do?” “Did I follow through?” If the answer is “No”, it’s time jump ship, you’re headed to Tarshish and God wants you in Nineveh. So if you are waiting for God to answer you, there might be a chance that God is waiting for you to obey the last thing He told you to do.
