Ministry Need

Hi friends! I wanted to share a need that we have. One of the boys involved in our project, Paito, has started playing guitar. He is incredibly gifted and is learning so rapidly! He has been playing for about a year and already has been invited to play with our church worship team and with a band that some friends of our have.

Paito is 17 years old. He lived on the streets for a few years. In 2010, we felt that God was calling us to take him in as a son. He has now been living with us for about a year and a half. His father lives nearby so he visits him from time to time but it is not really ideal for him to live there. Upon moving in with us, Paito began playing around with the guitar. Within 2 weeks he was playing songs and soon passed the skill level of our friend who was teaching him. We've been able to talk to him a lot about how this ability is a gift from God and we're excited to see him learning more about the heart of worship.

As Paito has begun playing in the worship band and this other band, he is in need of an acoustic guitar that plugs in. If any of you have one in good condition, laying around or know of someone with an extra one, it would really be a blessing to Paito as he continues to grow in his gifting. There is a team of visitors coming to Mozambique in May from Georgia and they would be able to bring the guitar over. Or if someone wants to donate funds, we could purchase one in South Africa. Please send me an email if you can help (!

If you'd like to donate funds towards the guitar, you can make a check payable to Abba's Ambassadors with "Masana Guitar" on the memo line. They handle all of our ministry finances. Their mailing address is:

Sarah, came upon your blog through Tara Dunn. I'm friends with a good number of people involved with the music scene in Athens. I'll get the word out and see what we can find for this gifted young man!

Hi Sarah! I've loved reading your blog postings and I'masking around to see if I can find a guitar for Paito. If I can't find one, I'd like to donate one to him. I am looking at different shops here in Charlotte, NC. Are there any other needs for the ministry right now, or anything that the boys need? I'd love to help in any way I can. Thanks for all you do for God's kingdom!!
