Put a roof on the Wheeler's house

Chelsea and Benjie Wheeler have been called to serve God and His children in need in Ika, Nigeria.  Caring for orphans, translating and printing copies of the Bible in local languages, helping to run a hospital, working to start up a local school...they do it all.  Recently, Benjie and his mother were kidnapped and held for ransom.  Through the terrifying 4 days it took to get him back, Benjie continued to pray for his captors reminding us that he may be the only Christian witness these men ever see.  Chelsea and Benjie are able to do all of this only through your support and donations.  Therefore, in addition to the worry for Benjie's safety through this ordeal, there is always the additional concern of how to pay for the unexpected expenses.  They had been saving to do repairs on the roof of their home, but now need to worry about their own safety.  Not all of us are called to work in foreign missions, but what we can do for them from here all the way accross the ocean is to support them both with your prayers and financially.  Lets bless them with a new roof on their house.  Through monsoon season they have had continual leaks and flooding in their home and need wood, tin, and some electrical work replaced.  Any additional funds will go towards roof repairs on the school building which is in even worse condition than their house.  If you would like your donation to be tax deductible or to set up a recurring gift you can give to them directly at http://liebenzellmission.org/give/ just be sure to select Chelsea and Ben Wheeler to ensure the donation goes to them.  Thank you for your support and your prayers.  Lets RAISE THE ROOF for Chelsea and Benjie!
