Friends… God has poured out upon The Lulu Tree in such a mighty way this past week. We are in awe.
Our Father is so good — He has truly arisen to fight on behalf of the poor and needy! (Psalm 10) He is the Lion of Judah and our trust is in Him alone.
In spite of us not being on social media right now (we’re fasting as a ministry for 40 days from Facebook and IG) and in spite of us doing zero fundraising — because we believe the Lord will move hearts in a way we never could — He has poured in enough funding over the past week ALONE to:
a) build a second dorm for the teen mamas and their babies ($8500);
b) build a perimeter wall around the school building to keep predators and villagers from entering, and to protect the teen mamas and pastors as they study ($15,867);
c) build a study hall/worship hall next to the dorms which will not only allow the mamas to study, but will provide room for offices, and for outreaches ($14,500);
d) dig a borehole at the school allowing hundreds of teen mamas to have access to clean drinking water ($2900);
e) build a kitchen at the school, providing meals for the teen mamas and teachers ($3500);
f) provide an energy-saving stove for the School of Hope ($1000).
Sing with us! We serve a Faithful Father.
Bend your knee and know He is going to provide for you too, wherever you’re at, whatever you’re facing — He loves you with the lavish, extravagant love of an Abba Daddy who will never, ever let you go.
Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,
extol him who rides on the clouds;
rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.
A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families,
he leads out the prisoners with singing;
but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
When you, God, went out before your people,
when you marched through the wilderness,
the earth shook, the heavens poured down rain,
before God, the One of Sinai,
before God, the God of Israel.
You gave abundant showers, O God;
you refreshed your weary inheritance.
Your people settled in it,
and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor.
