>THANK YOU TO EVERY PERSON WHO HAS DONATED FUNDS AND TIME TO DEVELOP THIS WONDERFUL MINISTRY. EVEN IF YOUR DONATION HAS NOT BEEN MENTIONED, WE DO APPRECIATE YOUR GENEROUS HEART!
Sometimes while you are in a process you do not see the progress. None of us at KarostaKids are excited about accounting, balance sheets, and simply numbers. However, our God loves the numbers. He loves investments and great interest rates. In fact, God's Kingdom banking has the greatest interest rates of 30, 60, 100%.
Last year on April we stepped out in faith. We found a venue that overexceeded all our hopes and dreams. It was perfect for the youth ministry God had been speaking to our hearts for YEARS. Once we stepped in "Missions Apartment" as we love to call it, our hearts rejoiced as with eyes of faith we saw the hope and transformation it will bring to the heart-broken youth of Karosta. We sensed this is going to be a place where young boys and girls will restore their lives. YES! We said as we looked into the future of God lifting up the future leaders. This is the place!
Now a little bit about the numbers that we have learned to LOVE:
Year 2011 - ending balance: 16$
Year 2012 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
