We pray and hope all is well with everyone as we experience this pandemic. We pray you have His peace upon you in the midst of this transition to reopening. We have continued discipleship at The 180 Center in New Haven, and we are still serving breakfast and lunch to a small number of the homeless. Many of the homeless
have been moved to hotels, and the men’s shelter has been temporarily closed. We anticipate, as the economy begins to open again, for the homeless to reemerge and numbers to increase. We pray God protects you and your loved ones.
We have been working on the outside of the new building. We are so grateful for all who have prayed and given generously thus far! We shared on Feb 11th that our total donations were $90,000; we have now reached $105,000! We are making progress and moving forward. We are so thankful for God’s provision!

At the end of March, the city had a virtual meeting with our engineer and attorney and we were able to get the FINAL approval SO WE CAN START TO GET PERMITS! Also, since we were required to hire an architect, we did a floor plan with all the new codes that are required. It is all very doable, but more then I was expecting. So just like the last letter, there are more unexpected fees and projects. Since working with the architect, and with many add-ons that the city requested, our estimate to complete the work has risen. You know, I recently told Ginny that if I had known how much work this would be, I would NEVER have done it! BUT that is really how everything that has been God’s plan for our lives has been. GOD knows everything involved with the new building, and His will is what will be accomplished. We are amazed and in awe at His faithful provision thus far!
The 180 Center could not survive without your donations. We are completely funded by the generosity of our church and partners. We thank all who have or are going to donate. God bless you!
