Happy New Year 2009 to our Iris Sudan global family!

We have exciting news! As many of you know, we have been watching God provide all year long for a matching grant of 200,000 USD to help us build on our new land. We are almost there at 77% of goal.

The matching deadline was scheduled to be 11:59 pm December 31st but we got fabulous news that our grant provider agreed to extend the deadline until our move in date of January 11, 2009.

We still need $46,500 USD to take full advantage of our matching funds. For two years up to 100 of us have been living on 1/2 an acre of rented property and now we are almost ready to move to the land God has provided! YAY!!

Here is how you can help be part of answering our children’s prayers for a timely move and the necessary development of our 40 acres.

1. We need your pledge amount by Jan 11, 2009 11.59 pm sent to bricksofhope@gmail.com along with your name and contact information.

2. Make your check payable to Iris Ministries and in the MEMO line designate your gift to SUDAN-BRICKS of HOPE

3. Mail donations for this campaign only via Diane Perry for grant tracking purposes

You will receive a generic receipt from Iris Ministries, Inc. All donations are tax deductible and will come directly to us through these designations. Up to $46,500 USD will be matched dollar per dollar for pledges received by Jan 11, 09.

Thank you for helping us make a miracle happen for our children and the people of Sudan. We can’t do what we do without our family all over the world.

So thank you again for your love, prayers and generosity. Please help us get the word out to all who might be interested in helping us make a dream come true in the New Year…

Love, Michele
