Celebrate! Our NextLahash campaign is fully funded!

We are thrilled to announce the completion of our NextLahash Portland office renovation campaign. Just over a month ago we asked our global community to join in and help us raise $42,000 over the course of the month of May.

We were blown away by God’s provision through the many kind gifts given from around the world! You gave even more than we had initially asked for – what a blessing! Below is a video summarizing the completion of the campaign:

We were also deeply touched by the prayers for the project, the advocacy, and the encouraging comments as we worked toward our goal. Below are a few of the things you all shared!

“We have been praying for Lahash as well as all the kids who are being and will be reached for God’s kingdom! God bless!” – Beverly Jacobson

“So excited for the new space and the expanded vision to care for 1000 kids. We are blessed to be partner with this incredible organization!” – Doug and Anya Holcomb

“So thankful for how the Lahash staff is obedient and faithful in their Kingdom work. May this new office space be a wonderful tool to increase what God has already started through Lahash.” – Anonymous

“God’s work through Lahash in inspiring!! We are excited to see this ministry continue to move forward.” – Ben and Nicole Anderson

“Exciting! Great ministry setting. Looking forward to being a part even further in the future.” – Doug & Ruth Hazen

“Praise God for His generous provision for this ministry ! This encourages our faith, our own listening to His leading and our prayers for Lahash!” – Janelle Lambert

“Excited for this next chapter in your story!” – Anonymous

During the month of June and July we’ll be building out the walls, fixing up the floor, installing lighting, and doing some interior design and purchasing furniture. For those in the Portland area – contact our staff member Clark Blakeman (clarkb@lahash.org) to be a part of one of the work days. We need a mix of both skilled and general labor to get this project done.

May this space bring honor and glory to God and be a part of his purposes of building his Kingdom and helping the church do a better job of ministering to these very vulnerable kids in East Africa!
