Newsletter Nov 2013

The New Life Centre has been extremely busy in recent times with the requests for accommodation outnumbering our facilities on a regular basis. Recently we had 9 young women in the house which is designed to sleep 7 at a push. This does tend to stretch our resources and is very tiring for Rennie and Wietz. But by the grace of God we do seem to manage.

You probably know that our proposal to add one additional bedroom and an area for relaxation and training is still on the agenda. However, the building project appears  to have negative forces against us at the moment. The plans were not approved as the regulations have changed since we first started the project. We have asked the designer to see if we can meet the changed regulations.

We do appreciate the generous giving of time, talent and resources by our faithful supporters and volunteers. We could not continue without your prayerful encouragement and consistent giving.
