The inn referenced in the quoted verse may have been a general lodging place or it may have been a spare room in a private residence. Whatever it was, it was unavailable. Because no room was available, Mary gave birth in less-than-ideal conditions.
This year, Dignity:Liberia began building its maternity waiting home, House of Hope and Dignity. It is taking shape! This would not have happened without your support, and we are so grateful to each of you for your past gifts.
However, building materials and labor costs add up. Funds that are being spent need to be replaced. Imagine if there were no room for an expectant mom to come for the last week of her pregnancy because the home was never built. Imagine if she had to give birth in less-than-ideal conditions due to lack of funding.
Can we count on you to help us build this home? If you have been waiting to make a year-end donation, wait no more! Your gift will be multiplied in the form of lives changed and lives saved. (And it’s tax-deductible!) Just click on this link to make a donation.
Thank you. Have a safe and Merry Christmas!
