The Mansion’s residential number continues to grow as we await the arrival of three more children. This will bring our total to 50. We have not had this many children on campus at one time in decades.
Calls are received almost daily regarding the placement of even more children in need. A dozen applications are awaiting a reply.
The placement of these children hinges upon the funds we will receive over the next few days and weeks. This is why this year-end appeal is so urgent.
A young boy has arrived from Houston, Texas, whose family lost their home and vehicle—everything they had—in Hurricane Harvey. This devastated family is now homeless, but they have found shelter for their son here at the Mansion. Please pray that they can rebuild their lives and be reunited as soon as possible.
How can we not provide a refuge for this precious little one?
Or how do we say no to receiving another young child who was kept locked up in a room for months and found naked, malnourished, drugged, mute and covered with feces?
Another child just arrived whose loving mother was just sent to prison, and there’s no one who is able to care for it.
Receiving children and taking them up in our arms is the mission of the Mansion!
We are here to minister to those who have no one else to turn to for help.
“Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14).
The influx of new children is partly due to adoptions that haven’t worked out, which is heartbreaking but true. We are now serving children from around the globe: Russia, China, Ethiopia, the Philippines and Eritrea.
Over recent months, the Lord has equipped us to care for these children by sending godly, capable staff to assist in this ministry. We would not be able to fulfill the mission without the extra help.
The bottom line is that with the growth we have had in our population of residents as well as the needed caregivers, our operational expenses are increasing. Obviously, we have a lot more mouths to feed and more houseparents and teachers to pay.
As this year comes to a close, I am reaching out to you for financial support that we need in caring for the children that have been placed in our care, with hopes of being able to take in additional children who are seeking shelter here at the Mansion.
I can assure you that your gift at this time would be appreciated very much.
Thank you for believing in this great cause. Please know that your support is making a difference in the lives of these precious children. Your investment in this ministry carries eternal dividends.
Because of your generous giving we receive messages like this:
“We never had much growing up. We were very poor and didn’t always live in a safe environment. We were shuffled from family member to family member. It was a hard life. I was often taken advantage of and carried a lot of shame. Thankfully, through a connection with a bus ministry, my siblings and I were brought to the Mansion. I found my purpose there. We were safe. We were sheltered. We were loved and cared for. With the Mansion’s help, I received my college degree. I am married now and I work alongside my husband in the ministry (UPCI). I am so thankful for everything that the staff and sponsors did for me. I still pray for them daily.”

P.S. One of our new teen-age girls was gloriously filled with the Holy Ghost two Sundays ago during our campus service. Your giving and prayers made this miracle possible!
