YET MORE MIRACLES HAS HAPPENED
Thank you for the water truck gift
On the previous entry I have written about a miracle that has happened during an unplanned dinner in the form on the water tank that we need to be installed to the water truck chassis that we have ordered was given by pak Oetoyo . Few days later while I was in New York , a special friend has e mailed me from Hong Kong and saying that she can not wait to send the money that she and her friends have raised for the orphanage's water truck. She said that we do not have to pay the balance for the car ( water truck) that we were planning to pay it with installments in 3 years time. She said that they have raised enough to pay the balance to the amount that has been paid. She asked me the orphanage's account number , the Swift code and the other detail about it . My dear friend has made donation in the form of auction for few nights stay of some rooms at her resort in Bali . Each room will be around 1500 USD per day at the usual rate . Also another friend has donated 3 special bottles of champagne for the same reason. During the gathering among great friends in Hong Kong on Sept 22nd they have raised more than 10 000 USD thus will be enough to pay up the balance of the water truck payment . The money should be on its way in few days time ( may be early next week) . Praise The Lord, not only we do not have to pay the balance in 3 years but also we will be getting one of the most essential needs for any human being . Clean water has been our main problem for years. Especially in from the month of March to November where the rain is never falling during that period. With having water our sanitation will be better , the orphanage will be having plants with leaves because will be watered adequately thus will be able to dampened dust and may be even air borne bacteria and we can build some water storages within the orphanage compound . We will also build a toilet and its water storage out side the orphanage's compound for the villagers to get some free clean water from us too. This will be right next to our library which is at the front part of the orphanage ground.
To Ms Kate Park , Mr Alex Chee , pak Oetoyo and their friends . To sis Amy and bro Chris , sis Lay Kean and bro Chris Sng , their cell group and their other friends also. To the solid "Singapore Motherhood Forum Mothers" , to bro John Ong Wae Meng and his friends , to Miss Stepahie Lie and to all of her friends from Seattle , to sis Jennifer Soen, "Thank you " for the participation and precious gift to the orphanage. This particular gift means a lot to us , this is the most important physical gift that you can possibly give to human being ( which is clean water supply) . With having enough clean water we will surely live healthily and the plants will be able to be watered adequately thus a better harvest can be obtained. We really appreciate it very much indeed.
We are hoping that in about 2 months time , the water truck will be completed on it's assembly and will be able to provide us our precious clean water for the orphans. By next year , even during the dry season we do not have to worry about the water supply any more. Your gift has been a huge liberation for us.
The other miracle which also I want to share with you all was the way we sent our clothings and books that we have collected for quite some times and stored them at Jakarta. From a good friend we were recommended to ask his help upon sending the goods to Timor with his freight forwarder company. His head quarter is situated quite far from my place in Jakarta. From this freight forwarder we were asked to contact some one else which is located within the place where my house is situated. As we contacted the suggested freight forwarder , this company not only charging us some 15% less but also willing to come to our place , brought their scale to weight the goods and willing to bring the goods with their own car.
If we are using the first company , we could have been renting a truck our self and must bring the goods our self to the freight forwarder company. A total of 1470 kg of clothing, many books for the library and toys are currently on their way to the orphanage. We are hoping that they will be arriving in 5 days from now.
Things has been made simple for us. We thank you for the miracles that are keeps on happening. To God be The Glory .
