Greg and Kait have a burden for the people of Nicaragua and a calling to work with orphaned and vulnerable children and families in the rural area of Los Cedros, Nicaragua. After looking at a number of possibilities, a small farm became available in Los Cedros. It already has a secure house on it and is fully gated (security is an issue there and the cost of fully fencing in a property, as you can imagine, is not cheap). After much prayer, Greg and Kait felt very confident that this was the property for their ministry, Haven Heart.
Real estate in Nicaragua is very different from North America, and after putting an offer in on the property, the Isaaks were told the owners are not going to budge on their price. While they don't want to make any rash decisions, their timeline is starting to feel some pressure. The baby is due in 14 weeks, they have 6 weeks left on their current rental, and their residency approval is relying on the purchase of a property.
In 3 weeks time, the Isaak family will have to either leave the country and re enter, which is not easy in these Covid days, or simply pay for a 30 day renewal every 30 days, which is costly in both money and time and just not a long term solution. The girls are very much needing some roots after a long year of transition and, sadly, Greg will be returning home to Canada in the coming weeks to say goodbye to his ill father and attend the funeral. It is so important for Kait to be in a secure, settled place before baby boy makes his arrival.
Below is a picture of the property Greg and Kait feel God has for them and the ministry of Haven Heart. We would love to be able to help them make the purchase of this ministry center possible. $25,000 is not a small amount of money, but it is also not an impossible amount! Please consider making a donation.
