Update - Operation Spirit of Christmas Benefiting Orphan Shade

UPDATE: Operation Thanksgiving has transitioned to Operation Spirit of Christmas!

We have now surpassed $23,000 and the push is on through our final show of the year on December 16th to get to $32,000 to build a home for orphans in Malawi. When the show ends on December 16th our Operation Spirit of Christmas draws to a close as well.

I got the following note from Nancy: Good morning, Preston. My Mom went home to Jesus on May 20, 2022. She lived 97+ years on earth and was ready to attend the heavenly banquet. I have been blessed with the closing of her estate. In honor of her life, I have donated $3000.00 to Orphan Shade to take us over the $20,000 target and hopefully get us to the finish line. 

What an amazing legacy to leave behind honoring her mom. Impacting the lives of orphans in Malawi for generations to come.

We have two new challenges underway. 1) Pianist Marvin Goldstein is challenging anyone who plays an instrument to match or beat a $100 donation; 2) PGA Golf Instructor Rob Strano is challening golfers to match or give to meeting the donation he and his wife, Naomi, have given of $2,000.

So, what do you say? These funds go to the building fund for house #3 for Orphan Shade. Go here to donate. Select "build a house" in the drop down menu.

Here's the information on our Giving Season recipient this year.

Over the years we have gathered resources and helped others all over the world. From Haiti to Cambodia, Tallahassee to Panama City. This Giving Season we will focus on Malawi, Africa and a program called Orphan Shade.

My wife, Cynthia, went to college with Jay Schierloh and they have been friends ever since. Jay and his wife, Stacey, began Orphan Shade in 2016.

The website tells the story: Orphan Shade was berthed as a shared vision of Pastor Prince Kampomo and Jay Schierloh in 2016. The two developed a friendship after meeting at Church Project and in a House Church that meets in Jay & Stacey’s home in Texas. A conversation began about the challenges that double orphans (both parents of the child have passed away) face in tribal villages in Malawi.

We have two goals this Giving Season which began with Operation Thanksgiving and now segues to Spirit of Christmas.

  1. Help raise funds to build the third orphange at an approximate cost of $32,000. Of course, there may be someone who would like to take on an entire project themselves...just reach out to Jay and he can share some special opportunities. The math is simple if everyone gives a little. I propose giving this month and next month. I know things are tight financially for many, I also know many have been blessed. Regardless, this is a chance to offer some of what we have been given and share it with others who have so very little.
  2. To raise the monthly support for the third home. It costs just $500 a month to provide what these homes need to provide the basics for the orphans and the house parents. We want to provide commitments, monthly pledges, totaling $500/month so that the home may operate securely into the future.

Will you take part?

Here's my visit with Jay.
