A Quick Need

Jay TenBrink and his wife, Faith, are missionaries with us here in Cofradia.  Jay is the Director of the Indigenous Ministry and oversees the general maintenance of the base vehicles and buildings.  We recently have encountered a couple of major needs that need to be addressed quickly.

Here is an email that Jay sent out earlier today:

I (want) to let you know about two needs that came up in the last week.
First of Pastor Gollo's laptop finally died. Last year I replaced the motherboard and the power switch and was able to keep t running until now. Last week the screen would not turn on, and once I fixed that the computer no longer recognized the hard drive, or any hard drive for that matter! Gollo uses his laptop a lot for his studies, sermon preparation, planning and communication. I am hoping to get him a new laptop that will serve him for a long time.

Secondly, the bulb for our new projector burned out last Sunday. I believe that it was a result of the power fluctuation that caused it to fail. I will be installing a power conditioner on that circuit to protect it better in the future. However, right now we need a new lamp which costs around $250.

Once these items are purchased I can find a way to get them down here. 

If you would like more information, please contact me and I will set you up in communication with Jay.  Thank you very much!

UPDATE: 5/19/13 Many have responded to this need.  Thank you very much for your generosity.  Jay told me that enough has come in to buy Gollo a new computer, two projector bulbs, and a power conditioner for the projector.  PRAISE THE LORD!
