The Pearl House

Chances are, you’ve read our story. You have caught the vision. You are excited that we are all in this process together of building a refuge for at-risk teen girls in Ghana. There is need everywhere. The need in Ghana is as bad as it is anywhere. And even as you read this, the need grows.

That’s what keeps me up at night.

With every day that passes, another 24 hours during which we didn’t get to minister to these precious pearls. From the glass-half-full perspective, it moves us that much closer to experiencing the reality of The Pearl House.

 So please pray. Pray for the pearls on the streets. Pray that God will watch over them until we get there. Pray that we will get there swiftly. We know God has all of this under His control, but we can’t seem to get over the urgency we feel.

Thanks for coming to this site and checking in on us. We are making progress. It’s slow, but we are getting there. We need to do this right. We want to do it well.

So where are we? We are working on several things right now. We are working on a large-scale fundraiser event which will both raise money for The Pearl House building and also money for the operations. This will be in the half million dollar range. In the meantime, we are working on raising operating funds. Simple moneys for stamps, meetings, and the like. Also for a small film crew to travel to Ghana to film a documentary to help bring the story home. And finally to raise money to rent a house and operate The Pearl House with a small number of girls while the permanent building is being constructed. Please pray about how you can help us with small fundraisers in your school, church, and community. Or give online by clicking the donate button on the right! Most of all, pray for The Pearl House and the precious pearls. Thank you so much for partnering with us. Please continue to check in on us!
