Today is March 1st and we have put out our building fund drive online. We are excited about what could come from doing this building fund drive. We are excited to see God move through people, businesses and churches to get a homeless family a place on the Soaring Wings Ranch!
We know and trust that God can do amazing things and can get 15 people, businesses and churches together to give a different future to a homeless family that would either wise live in their car, on the street or in a shelter.
As a mom, I can not imagine raising a child in a car or shelter. It is hard enough to teach a child the way they should live in a supportive house never mind in a car. I can't imagine getting a child ready for school and wondering where they will brush their teeth or if the car is warm enough before school starts. I can't imagine what it would be like to get breakfast at a shelter with my kid wanting to have breakfast before getting dressed for the day but knowing we would see too many strangers for that to be okay. I can't imagine what it would be like to wonder where the best and safest place to sleep for the night would be with my little family.
We want to change all those worries and fear for a family. We want to give a homeless family a space that is theirs. A space with their own bathroom, living area, laundry space, bedrooms.
We want to give a homeless family a mentor and some spiritual guidance to move forward with their future.We will help connect the homeless family to health insurance, job training or schooling, counseling and teach them the skills needed to be successful in moving out and having an independent future.
This can be done with YOUR help, with YOUR investment in the building fund. Soaring Wings Ministries believes that this building fund is God's desire for Soaring Wings Ranch, to help a family receive God's love, grace and mercy while getting the necessary skills to be independent when they leave the ranch. But we can not do it on our own! We need you to invest! We are looking to raise $31,100 to get the building addition up.
5 people/businesses/churches giving $5000

What can you/your business/ or church give today?
There are two ways to give: You can give by mailing a check to Soaring Wings Ministries and in the memo write "Building Fund Drive" or you can give through Paypal (there is a link on the building fund page on this website http://www.soaringwingsministries.org/building-fund.html).
We are trusting and praying that God will provide people like you to say yes I will invest in getting a homeless family off the streets in Northern Colorado and into a supportive caring home at Soaring Wings Ranch. We have the permit from the county. We have people ready to build. We now need you to invest and help get a homeless family out of the shelters/streets and into their own space at Soaring Wings Ranch.
Please visit our building fund page today to read more about our building drive. Share it with your friends and join us in pray about how much you will invest TODAY!
