…in no particular order:
Project Red is based in San Antonio, Texas and works in El Salvador. Click on their name to learn all about them.
Open Arms is based in Portland, Oregon and works in Kenya, Africa. Click on their name to learn all about them.
147 Million Orphans is based in Nashville, Tennesee and is working in Honduras. Again, just click on their name to learn all about them.
On a personal note: I had the honor of serving with 15 other Sister Project Sisters on this year’s Grant Selection Committee. I wish all 100 of you had been there…it was deeply moving! Sisters, The Lord is doing BEAUTIFUL THINGS through these 3 ministries (and ALL of the ministries who applied for grants this year…truly incredible). Each of these ministries was reviewed THOROUGHLY from all angles (spiritual, financial, sustainability, etc.). Most importantly, the 16 of us prayed fervently in a group and individually over all the applicants. Our prayer, as in years past, was that we would “get out of the way” and let God lead. He has faithfully answered. Please know that your GENEROUS $1,000 contribution will be used for His glory!
I promise that if you take a few minutes to click on our Finalists and learn about the work they are doing in the mighty name of Jesus, it will be time well spent! Better yet, click all over their websites…”go deep” for hours with them, and pray over their work. Pray that God will faithfully guide every dollar you give to the EXACT woman/child He wants to touch with it.
Each of these 3 Finalists will receive at least $10,000! Join your Sisters on Tuesday, March 25th, 6:30 pm at Oak Hills Church (details coming) for our annual Sister Project Gathering. Each of our 3 Finalists will give a presentation, and you will vote to give one $80,000!
To Him be the Glory,
If you want to see, hear of feel God’s hand at work in the lives of our sisters all over the world, join The Sister Project Selection Committee! From firsthand experience, I cannot express to you how encouraging it is to serve on this committee and see our grant applicants up close and personal! Just when I get tempted to focus on many of the hard and horrible things going on in the world, I see the LIGHT OF JESUS shining through the work our grant applicants are doing. I encourage you to prayerfully consider serving on our Selection Committee.
Here’s the scoop:
We’ll meet at Fair Oaks Country Club
October 3rd, Thursday at 6:45 – 11:00 p.m.
December 5th, Thursday at 6:00 – 11:00 p.m.
Because of the breadth and depth of information covered, prayers raised, and deep discussion, you must commit to BOTH meetings in order to serve. We have found this is the most fair way to serve our grant applicants.
Did I mention that this committee is also REALLY fun?
If you feel led to serve in this way, please e-mail Ellen Yarbrough email@example.com OR hit the contact button above BY FRIDAY, SEPT. 13th.
In His Love,

Another update from Wiphan in Zambia! God is speeding their new Data Entry Building along. Check out these pictures!
Just imagine: our widowed sisters in Christ will soon be working here to earn money that will provide food, education, medicine and BIBLE TEACHING for their families and the many orphans who reside with them at the Wiphan (widows and orphans) compound.
Thanks You, Lord, for hearing our prayers and directing our giving to bring You glory!
P.S. Please be in prayer for NEXT year’s grant applicants. May He lead us again. Organizations are working away to meet our deadline on August 16, 2013 (postmarked by midnight.) Spread the word if there’s someone you think should apply & haven’t mentioned it yet.

How overwhelming and encouraging to see how quickly this year’s grant is making an impact! We just got this incredible update from our $80,000 winner, WIPHAN (Widows & Orphans) in Zambia. Please be sure to scroll all the way down to see the structure taking shape and the sweet words from Cuthbert Mutumba, Data Entry Manager.
Just imagine our SISTERS who will be working there to earn income for their families and for orphans living in the WIPHAN complex. Remember one of the beautiful elements of WIPHAN’s grant award as that this new $80,000 Data Entry Center will make WIPHAN self-sustaining for years to come! I also noticed the workers in these photos…before seeing these pictures, I hadn’t even realized that God would be using our grant to provide income for these very workers!
