Special Request from the Walker Family.    Donations can be made online at Walker5forGod.com

Would you consider helping make a house into a home?


The Walker Family has found a house to rent!

The Walker Family has been house-sitting for the Martin's (base directors here at YWAM Santiago) since we arrived here in Santiago, however, the Martin's will be home after Christmas.  We have been looking and praying for a home of our own since we arrived.  We've prayed for one that is close to the Martin's and the YWAM Missions house.  The neighbors next to the Martin's just moved out so we are planning on renting this house mid-December.  Please be in prayer for us as we negotiate a good price and the move-in date. 

Excited but in NEED!  Homes here come with nothing...no appliances, screens, ceiling fans...nothing.

When we moved to Santiago, we brought with us only clothes, kids items such as Jesse's legos, and homeschool books.  We have lived in YWAM housing in Orlando for the past 5 years so have no furniture of our own.  YWAM Santiago is a much smaller base...5 staff members including Ned and I, so they do not have housing or furniture for us.
Would you consider helping us make this house into a home by sponsoring an item needed?
We have been pricing items here locally both new and used to see how much moving into this house will cost.  We are asking at church and the local Christian schools to see if they have any used furniture/appliance item also.  The below prices are approximate in US dollars of items that we have found.  Please also be praying that we can find good prices for these items.  Prices at second hand stores here are basically the same as new.  We have checked quite a few places. 

You can sponsor an item listed or just give towards miscellaneous housing costs....

*varies....means that the prices are about the same as the states plus some....
Can you mail things from the states??..this is possible however we pay $1.75 per pound in shipping and if it is over 100lbs we have to make a trip to Santo Domingo to get it which costs us about $100.  
 **an inverter is what allows your essentials such as the refrigerator and fans to continue to have electricity even when the city electric goes out...which is about once a day and sometimes more. 
ALL DONATIONS NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR LARGE ARE A BLESSING TO US!!  THANK YOU FOR BEING A HUGE PART OF OUR MINISTRY AND THE CHANGED LIVES OF THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC.
