Our ambitious goal of building a guest house in Nairobi, Kenya to bring self-sustainability to our compelling projects among the materially disadvantaged of the Kibera slum is VERY close to being a reality. This has been a challenging project in so many ways and yet God has miraculously provided at every critical juncture and we are "almost home". We are writing one more time to ask our committed partners if you can help us get this project finished and furnished in time to welcome the first of our 7 summer teams on June 1. The pictures below show a model room and bathroom which we need to replicate 15 times. Also to equip the facility with furnishings, linens, kitchen equipment, and tableware is very expensive. We need to raise $100,000 in the next 30 days to bring this project to a completion and to begin to reap the returns from our investment.

Please remember that 100% of the profits from this endeavor will go to the worldwide mission of New Hope Initiative and your generous tax deductible investment will reap dividends for decades to come. We are still offering this very special deal:

- Gifts of over $25,000 are good for free lifetime lodging
- Gifts from $10,000 to $25,000 are good for 5 years of free lodging
- Gifts of $1,000 to $10,000 are good for 3 years of free lodging

Any size gift will be greatly appreciated. If you donate online please include the words "guesthouse" in the specify donation box.

Thank you again for helping to make this incredible dream a reality.
