Dear Friend of the Fatherless,

After three years of visits, countless negotiations, the placement of an in-field team, formal NGO recognition, and various switchbacks and setbacks, I'm very pleased to announce that we (World Orphans) are pouring the foundation on our project in Iraq today!

This new community center is set in the midst of 250 homes for widows and orphans, allowing it to be an amazing support and outreach to some very vulnerable women and children in Northern Iraq.

I'll be taking trips to Iraq in December and January to see the progress and to bring people along who have a heart for funding the work in significant ways. I'm very excited about this next chapter of our work in Iraq and the Middle East and would appreciate your prayers as the construction continues over the next several months.

Until They All Have Homes,
