Moka Mission House for Gibello fam

Hi everyone, this is Caleb & Melissa Gibello. The Holy Spirit has lead our family to live among the Moka people here in Papua New Guinea. Our long-term mission goals are to learn the language (Acts 2:8), preach the Gospel (Matthew 24:14), evangelize the surrounding villages (Luke 4:43; Luke 9:6; Acts 8:40), start local churches (The Book of Acts), translate the Scriptures, start a Bible school, do Operation Newborn, do medical work, and more.
But to begin with the main practical goal for 2018 is to get the Moka mission house built. Until that happens we will be living in a small “grass hut” type house, which will make our ministry in Moka difficult and give us less time for the ministry (since daily practical living will consume most of our time).
To get the mission house built is no small project though. We estimate that the total cost will be around $50,000 (so the $10k for here on GoFundMe is just a fifth of the total cost). A third of that cost is just shipping the supplies to Moka via barge and plane (because it is so remote), and the building material will cost us double to triple of what it would in the States. If we can raise the funds through donations it would be wonderful to have the mission house constructed during the first half of 2018.
A few hundred people will probably read about this project, and if everyone who does would donate $100 or $200 then sufficient funds will be raised to pay for the construction of the mission house at Moka. Please donate to this project and please also forward this project to your contacts as well. Visit our blog at PNGorBust.BlogSpot.com to donate (a tax receipt will be provided when donating through EMA USA). (You can also donate through the Go Fund Me project.)

Our prayer is that this mission house will be used by many missionaries over the years in order to get the Gospel established in Moka. This will most likely be our biggest project, so please partner with us as we begin this ministry in order to reach these unevangelized people with the Gospel of Jesus.
