School begins all over the Dominican Republic on Wednesday August, 17.  New Hope Girls Academy officially opened its emergency housing today and will begin with students on September 1.  When we reflect on how much has happened to prepare us for that date we have to stop and say THANK YOU!    

* To all of you who have been drawn to this work partnering with a purchase of a “cup of hope” on PayPal, at a local coffee party, a community mug or weekly women’s group.  THANK YOU! 

* To all of you who shopped at our Simple Registry site buying first building supplies and then school supplies….THANK YOU!  


*To our faithful supporters who followed us in transition as we stepped out in faith…THANK YOU!  


*To Helina’s Heart, her group of beaders, and those of you who purchased jewelry from them…Thanks! 

*To all of you who hauled the wood, block, sand and gravel up that narrow steep hill donating your sweat labor…THANK YOU! ( It’s hard to believe that construction began May 21, less than 90 days ago!)


*To those of you who trust us with your monthly donations to sustain the Reyes Family and the work of New Hope….THANK YOU!

*To those of you who made donations of goods: meat, rice, school supplies, linens, clothing, bibles and more…THANK YOU! 

*To the hundreds of you who have covered us and this work in prayer…you have truly carried us and we are profoundly grateful.  THANK YOU!
