With 2015 quickly coming to a close, our entire team here at A Door Of Hope would like to thank you for your support and prayers this past year. What a year it has been! We’ve seen growth in every area of our ministry: our church partners, our licensed foster homes, our prayer partners, the children we’re serving, and the much-needed staff to license and support more Christian foster homes! The momentum is tangible as we are literally pursuing the goal for every child in crisis throughout Tampa Bay to have a home.
So would you join us in prayer around a few specific numbers?
On November 21st, we finished our most recent foster parent training class. There are now 23 new families pursuing licensing as foster parents! This is our largest class to date and the largest we are aware of in Hillsborough County. So please join us in praying for these families, that they may display the love of Christ to children who desperately need to know Jesus is real.
We have two different foster parent training classes scheduled to start at the end of January. They will be held in Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties. With these two Christian foster care classes, our goal is to train up the body of Christ to impact children throughout our community. Praise the Lord with us for this amazing provision!
In the next few days we will be launching an End of the Year Giving Opportunity for the body of Christ to financially support the work of providing hope for kids in crisis. And we’re so excited to share that an anonymous donor has committed to match the yearly pledges of 28 monthly donors! Join us in prayer that the Lord would bring forth 28 “Hope Partners” who will commit to giving a monthly financial gift throughout 2016. Be on the lookout for details on this awesome opportunity in our upcoming emails.
