My name is Autumn Buzzell and I live and work in Ghana, West Africa with City of Refuge Ministries. Here, I run our school, Faith Roots International Academy, and get to be a part in rescuing and the healing of children who have been trafficked into the fishing trade, orphaned, abandoned, and those who just need a little extra loving. What an amazing gift this life is!

Want to Help us Move??

So, moving days are rapidly approaching.  And we are beginning to hyperventilate with the sheer number of things that must be accomplished between now and then. 

August 23, 2014--We are moving 23 boys, their Boy's deans, and all their stuff (plus some new stuff added to it) over to our new LEGACY BOY'S HOME--a 2 story house that will eventually house 36 kids, plus their staff.  But, we have some school stuff to figure out before we can add more rescued children to that home.

August 23, 2014 (or so)--Staff and volunteers are moving to our new homes in the Missionary Apartments, 4 apartments and a whole load of us moving over there.  The guest house will then be freed up for volunteers passing through or other staff that will be coming to teach with us this year.

September 6, 2014--We are moving at least 4 families out to the Redeemed House, ladies that are a part of our 7 Continents program, and all their kiddos, are moving out for a 2 year residential program that we are starting up.  We are excited to get all kinds of products out to you that these ladies are making and creating.  It's going to be good.

I did a count the other day.  There are going to be approximately 85 people living on our campus come September.  Now, that is a high estimation...it is if all these things work just right and everyone gets to come as planned.  But, WOW!  Daily providing and planning and arranging for 85 people living here at CORM.  That's pretty unbelievable.  Was it all that long ago that we were all crammed into a 3 bedroom house in Downtown Doryumu?  Pretty amazing!

We could sure use your help!

Here is a list of needs that were are looking to purchase in the coming weeks for our big move.  If you are interested in helping out, go to our website: www.cityofrefugeoutreach.com and make a donation.  You could also make donations by check to City of Refuge Ministries and sending it to: PO Box 91546, Sioux Falls, SD 57109.  You can label it BIG MOVE.  We'll know what you're talking about then!  If you have a specific item you want to purchase from this list, just write the name of the item in the notes section (e.g. bed, BIG MOVE). If you can, shoot off an email to stacy@cityofrefugeoutreach.com to let us know of your donation towards our BIG MOVE.

For those of you who have helped fundraise, prayed for, and in some way supported us in building our long term missionary apartment complex, THANK YOU! A two-year dream is actually happening! My furniture is also added to the totals above. I will be needing the following:
1 queen size bed/mattress--$200
2 twin size beds/mattresses
1 living room set (includes long couch, love seat, chair)
1 dining room set (table and chairs)
1 stove
1 refrigerator
3 mosquito nets
1 desk--$150
1 wardrobe--$200
1 elliptical--$300
2 bookshelves--$100/each
1 TV/stand--$200

These things can be donated for in the same way as above.

Thank you for continuing to be a part of all the things you see happening at CORM. We couldn't do it without YOU!
