I am posting part of a note from Rick Daviscourt about what Restoring Children International is all about..please give and help Thanks https://fundly.com/going-to-peru-to-help-restoring-children-international

Hello from Arequipa,

Our baby Luigi’s surgery date has been set for this coming Wednesday, March 15th at 8:00 am. He and his mother (one of our girls) have been interned in the hospital in our capital city of Lima since later last week in order to get Luigi ready for his surgery and get him in line for the operation room. The only thing that will delay his surgery is if another child comes in to that children’s hospital who is in much greater need to be operated on in order to save a life.

Luigi has an increasingly large hole in the ventricular wall of his heart. Unfortunately, his surgery cannot be accomplished by going into his heart through an artery as his are so small. He must have an Open Chest and Open Heart operation. Being quite concerned about this, I contacted one of his cardiologists to ask if it wouldn’t simply be better to wait for a little later on in his life when he is bigger and stronger. His doctor told me no. He said there is more risk in waiting till he is a bit older than there is in performing the operation itself. He further said that there is a deficiency in the ventricular wall that is going to cause his heart to continue to weaken. He said that Luigi will be lacking enough oxygen. We live at high altitudes here in the Andes mountains. Additionally, the baby will not grow at the rate he should. He is already small and underweight for his almost 21 months and has not enjoyed a robust health in his infancy. Keeping weight on him has been very, very challenging for us.

The cardiologist stated that his surgery does imply risk – even for the best of surgeons that are out there.

In saying all this, I ask that you pray as our Lord leads you to do so. He knows exactly what needs to be done after all.

Thanks for taking a bit of time out of your busy schedule to pray for this little guy - Rick

About my very good friend Rick Daviscourt

Rick answered a call on his life over 20 years ago to help abused, discarded, children. God asked him to go to Peru. He has been rescuing at risk, abused young girls for many years now in Arequipa, Peru. He has set up a home for girls with a very small team of people. The cost to maintain the home is significant. Rick will say to you, "I have no idea how we do this every month." Rick has extended an invitation for me to come and visit. I will be leaving March 22nd for a ten day visit. 

I have heard many, many horror stories from Rick, watched him tear up as he shared with me some of the difficulty and abuses endured by the kids. Rick has also shared wonderful stories about the lives of these young girls who grow up in this home becoming productive, "Restored" young women.

I asked Abba, Father to help me raise the money to go there.  Almost immediately after raising up this very prayer a  good and faithful friend called me asking for my help repairing a sewer collapse on their property. As a result of our trading work,  my expenses to Peru are completely taken care (GOD answers prayer)

All funds received from all of you via Fundly (less their charges) I will take with me to Arequipa Peru for Rescuing Children International. I hope over the course of the next three months you will be moved to add a few dollars to this account.

Nathan Grapes and I held a fundraiser two years ago for Rick and the girls. Many of you helped us to raise over $5000.00

Thank you so very, very much for helping to support the children. The girls are learning about the Jewish Messiah, The Lion of The Tribe of Judah. Rick Daviscourt has reconnected the Gospels to their foundation taking his very Christian understanding of our Savior back to the root of the story. The girls are safe, protected and learning about the Messiah who redeems the nations. They are learning about love.

Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Reprove the ruthless, Defend the orphan, Plead for the widow.

'When we do absolutely nothing, absolutely nothing gets done'

THANK YOU!

Update #1

Rick Daviscourt responded to a call on his life to help children. He ended up in Peru rescuing at risk young girls. The stories that he has shared with me has many times created tears for both of us. I am heading down to see first hand what his home for young girls is accomplishing. I am literally taking any monies that YOU contribute with me. I have watched Rick constantly seeking support. If you are a friend on my Facebook Page, I challenge each of you to donate FIVE BUCKS....Just $5.00 for these girls...THANK YOU for giving, thank you very, very, very much!
