It Only Takes a Spark

GlobalGiving Quarterly Report 

February 11th, 2019 

 

It only takes a spark 

Overflowing with love, we move forward to embrace 2019 in a high spirit and with positive attitudes. We are grateful and thankful as we inform our donors and supporters that our second payment to secure our shelter was made on the 11/30/18. Funds from our Summer Strings Concert, GlobalGiving, and in-country donations allowed us to make a payment of $22,000.00 Belize dollars. 

As we continue our work we are happy to report that on February 13th, 2019 the first meeting will be held with our new board of directors where our official executive team will be nominated. Also in attendance will be Mrs. Anita Zetina, gender-based violence advocate in Belize, who has offered to support Mary Open Doors through the strengthening of the BOD. MOD welcomes her knowledge and expertise and looks forward to having a strong team of directors to move forward. 

As we journey on assisting women and children we have two young women in the shelter with infants. One currently attending parenting classes (offered by the Women’s Department) and seeking employment. She is making steady progress and reaching her goals. We pray that very shortly she will be empowered to move on. The other young lady was recently accepted into the shelter and is working on her individualized plan which includes setting realistic goals and reaching those goals 

Our priority remains to secure the shelter, we will continue to do all we can with the grace of God until we have reached that point. We are daily experiencing this dire need for a sanctuary for women with their children, to have a safe space in their time of crisis where they can have time to recover and think about changes they need to make in their lives. We are determined to be that step towards changes in the lives of families and our country. We extend with gratitude a sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed in any way to make this possible. Father may everything we do begin with your inspiration and continue with your saving help. Let our work always find its origin in you and through you to reach completion. May God Bless us all.
