One of our neighbors read about us on this Web site. She sent us a donation and is wondering how to pray for us.
Our biggest prayer need right now is for money to get a new project off the ground. We’d like to build or rehab a multi-family building, providing two efficiency apartments for graduates of the Grace and Peace Winter Shelter, and at least two larger apartments, creating a mix of families in the building.
Grace and Peace Fellowship operates a women’s shelter in the winter. Every spring when the shelter closes, there are some women who are ready for their own small, manageable apartments. Cornerstone has been asked to help provide these apartments.
A committee has been working on the project for several months now. We identified a building
near our other buildings that could be a candidate for rehab. Now we’re working on raising $20,000 to purchase the property. Of course, we charge rent and have income. But our rents are set intentionally well below market rate. We need to rely on gifts and grants for new projects.
A church sent us $2,000, and so we have a start for our new project fund. That’s our prayer request! Let’s thank the Lord for the $2,000 plus your gift, neighbor, and pray for more! Amen!
If you can make a year-end, tax-deductible donation toward this project, please make a check payable to Cornerstone Corporation and mail it to Cornerstone at 6030 Etzel Ave., St. Louis, MO 63112.
