Serving Together

Andy and I would like to take a moment to share the heart and vision of Building Foundations. The work we do in Ghana for The Gonzalez complex and the PLC Orphans and Widows is an ongoing mission that started in 2007. Our desire is to gather resources through Grants, monthly donors and find those that are willing to help us help others. In the near future we would like to have readily available resources that would allow us to reach out to Those in our own backyard, community and throughout the state. We would like to build up the small needs ministry near and far. We desire to provide immediate help to those in need, whether it be to help pay a bill, provide food, clothing, to partner with others to meet the small needs of those around us. We would like to Help You to help others. However we can. We can not do this alone, and God has placed it in our hearts to find others to partner with us in this area. We have never been discouraged to help others alone, For we have seen God provide, but we feel deeply that we can do so much more with the help of others. If God is speaking to you to reach out and serve others, We would like to Help you to help others. This is our desire and we are trusting God to provide the finances for this. Please feel free to message us if you have something on your heart that we can pray with you for... We are so much better serving together..

Orphans and Widows Need Your Help

Help us get this done...

It's The Action

Partner with us. ...give to this worthy cause. "It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” - Mahatma Gandhi

Urgent Need Jan 2015

URGENT NEED - Building Foundations partnering with Perfect Love Chapel to build a Training Center for Widows and Orphans and a home to house them all together. The land that was purchased for this Ministry is in need of donations. The Chief of the village has posted a notice stating that we need to begin work on the plots or the Land will be taken from us and sold to someone else. We need to begin building walls around the Land, which will allow us to keep the land. We need your help, every dollar counts. We need to raise $5500.00 dollars to complete the project. Please consider joining us in this great work that will bless many. All donations are tax-deductible and 100 % will go towards the work. Thanks - Andy and Julie Estrada

Act on What You Hear

(The Message) Act on What You Hear
James 1:19-21 Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear. God’s righteousness doesn't grow from human anger. So throw all spoiled virtue and cancerous evil in the garbage. In simple humility, let our gardener, God, landscape you with the Word, making a salvation-garden of your life.
22-24 Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don’t act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.
25 But whoever catches a glimpse of the revealed counsel of God - the free life! - even out of the corner of his eye, and sticks with it, is no distracted scatterbrain but a man or woman of action. That person will find delight and affirmation in the action.
26-27 Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world. Help us Help other... Donate to this mission:
