The Journey Has Begun!


I just got the info from SEBTS with the requirements for Solomon to come as an International Student. The school is waiving the tuition but the government requires that he have $7960 verified in a bank account to prove he will be able to live without a job. Students are not permitted to work the first year of being here. We also need to pay for his plane ticket and all other fees involving immigration. So, our journey of fund raising begins now.

Would you please consider contributing to the Solomon fund? Please pray and ask the Lord if HE wants you to be a part of Solomon's journey to becoming the MAN HE IS MAKING HIM TO BE and to be about HIS MINISTRY! Things can move very quickly if we have everything. We are hoping to have him here by Spring!!

Please make contributions to:

Luke 8:21 Ministries
Eileen Mestas - President
P.O Box 1862
Wake Forest, NC 27588
919-671-6482 cell

This is our new ministry birthed on my last visit to Ethiopia.

Luke 8:21 But HE answered and said to them, "MY mother and MY brothers are those who hear the Word of God and do it." Jesus is the Father to the Fatherless, we are to be the mother and brothers to them!

We are not a 501C3 so this is not tax deductible. However, your reward will be in heaven as you obey the command of James 1:27 "Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: "to visit orphans and widows in their trouble and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. "

Also, please keep us in your prayers as we continue this journey of Faith and obedience to God!

Thank you to all of you!!

Have you also thought of setting up a paypal account so people can donate directly to your account online? Just an idea to get the funds to you faster. Praising God that Solomon gets to come home!

Eileen!!! This is soooo exciting!!!

Solomon has already been such a blessing to me personally (and my far-away son)! What a tremendous priviledge it would be contribute to this fund!

A paypal button, as Kristi mentions above, would be great!

Hi Eileen-

We met at Providence's Adoption Fair. My name is Su Soutter; my family did the testimony at the beginning. I check into your blog every now and then. . seems like I checked in on the right day. . .a check is in the mail for Solomon's schooling. Your post made me cry and that video of you talking. . .had to show my husband and the my kids. I love your radical heart.

Our God is Good-
