As we approach the end of the year, there are some program areas still in need of funding that I would like to highlight. First, Married Students Housing
construction on our seminary has been stopped most of this year due to lack of funds. We would like to restart in the beginning of the new year as the Lord provides the funds. There will be 24 apartments and each one costs about $50,000.
To help get the hospital self-sustaining, we need to establish 9 departments to get accredited for Nursing training. Each department costs about $25,000.
If we can get accredited this year, we will be able to start training in the fall of 2020. These students would pay their own tuition costs, which would help with the operating costs of the hospital. Right now, we are working with a company who will be able to help us get some urgently needed equipment and supplies for the hospital. Pray that this partnership will work to benefit both RIMI and this company and allow us both to continue our God-given missions work.
We also want to see God greatly expand His work throughout all South Asia. To do this requires great prayer and financial partnership. To help meet various needs of the ministry, and to make up for some shortfalls this year, we need $100,000. This will help us finish the year strong. Therefore, would you please consider a special, year-end gift to help the ministry?
Thanks for holding the rope and we look forward to partnering with God’s people until He returns to bring us all into His glorious presence!
