#fivethingsfriday: World Changers

Your monthly five-point summary of what's new with Nadege. 

1. What's Coming:

God has been so faithful throughout each step of the journey for Nadege. We have witnessed His presence through the dreaming, the planning, the construction and now as we continue to hire staff and prepare for the opening of the Safe House. We are extra grateful for all of the goodies we’ve received from our Amazon Wishlist: bedding, kitchen supplies, Haitian Creole Bibles and journals and much, much more. There is still time to help us stock the safe house. Click here to make this house feel like HOME for women in Haiti.

2. Prayer Request:

As we pursue a summer opening, multiple teams will be traveling to finish construction, hire additional staff and pray over the land. Please pray for continued peace in Haiti, as well as safe travel and health for all.

4. Thankful Thoughts:

We are completely blown away by the ambition, heart and dedication of two groups of young people! Check out what these next generation world changers have been up to:

“Scoops of Hope,” an ice cream social dreamed up by middle school student Makayla Colescott, brought families together for some good ‘ol fashioned fun on May 5th. While she was hoping to raise $100, with her hard work and an amazing team, the event pulled in over $1,500!

A group of high school marketing students from Northwestern chose to support Nadege, Inc. with their recent “Warrior Run.” With a 5 week timeline and a $100 budget, they put on an incredible night walk/run event and raised over $4,000!

5. Weekly Words:

“We chose to support Nadege with our fundraiser because we are so passionate about empowering women. We want to help, and we realize that everyone has a story.” - Jaydn Braun, Northwestern High School Senior
