“The Lord bless you and keep you.
The Lord make His face to shine upon you.”
We feel like the Lord has blessed The Simple Room this past month, and His face is certainly shining upon us. We moved into a new school year with bright colors on our walls and new carpeting and tile on our floors. We were able to do some minimal up-dates to our building thanks to many volunteers, a generous contractor, and an adjustment to line items in our budget. After being closed for a couple of weeks, our boys and girls were surprised to return and see the transformation.
Words from Our Director
"The Simple Room open house in August was a huge success with many old friends and donors attending. Programming for our boys and girls started early in September. Currently we have about fifty students enrolled with the number growing each day. Students are welcome Monday through Friday to participate in a variety of activities. We are excited and humbled that our largest enrollment in programming involves church activities. Several community churches have lovingly welcomed our students into their youth programs, and we are providing the transportation on Wednesdays and Sundays. It has been a blessing to see the children seek the Lord and to see Him continually revealed to our students and staff alike. We are providing tutoring, art, dance and a Bible study group for boys and another for girls at The Simple Room. Mentoring is always an overflow in all we do.
We appreciate your financial and prayer support. Please know what a blessing you are to our children." - Jamie Harling
