I moved out of the Translation Center last month and into a small apartment. The result of this is that I was no longer able to support the Breakfast Bar, and it was in danger of closing down. Last Thursday I received an email from a student asking if I had a Paypal account. I gave them the details of the account and thought no more about it.
Then Friday morning money began arriving in my account from all over the world! It seems that some students who had been to the Main HQ in the past had heard of the situation and, knowing how important the Breakfast Bar is to the students here, gathered together to donate money to support us! The goal was to raise enough money to cover the basic needs for a year, $300 a month or $3600 total. So far the donations have reached $1100 and more is coming. It may not seem like much, but that amount will keep the Breakfast Bar open for another three months.
It means so much to the students here that they all want to send a big Thank You to everyone involved with this project. When someone comes here for the first time they are usually overwhelmed with the cultural and societal differences that it makes staying here difficult. This little Breakfast Bar makes them comfortable and gives them a fellowship with the other students here. The people in our new support group know this because they have been here themselves, and they want to help the students here on their journey to the Truth.
If you would like to help the students be a little bit more comfortable and stay here longer then you can make donations at anytime by clicking on the “Donate” button in the right column. Please make a note that the donation is for the Breakfast Bar so we can keep track of it. Thank you to all who are participating in this and I will keep you all updated as things progress.
