Exciting News!

I wanted to give you a quick update on where we stand and also share some exciting things that are happening with Freedom!

We currently stand at 25% of our goal! Woo Hoo! I’ve been told that the next 50% will be the hardest to raise but we are trusting that God will provide and know that His timing is perfect! We would like to be at 30% by the end of June. That only gives us about a week but I know we can reach that goal and we just continue to ask that you prayerfully consider joining us on this journey!

Several of you have asked how to give so I’ve posted the steps below for giving online and by check.

    1. Visit
    2. Select Donate under Invest
    3. Choose the Pyle Family                          
    4. Select monthly or annual      

By Check: (Include ‘Pyle’ in the memo line)
    Freedom International Ministries
     P.O. Box 92
     Noblesville, IN 46061

If you prefer to give by check, we do have monthly envelopes that are available and would be happy to give you some! We find this also serves as a helpful reminder to give each month.

Freedom is also experiencing some exciting things! Two weeks ago, we started the 2014 - 2015 school year in the new school building! The classrooms are full of life, excitement and a few tears! One interesting fact about the new school is that we have toilets! This might not sound like a big deal but most of these kids have never seen a toilet and find it very fascinating! The kids are learning to use the toilet and that brings its own set of experiences. We have seen them try to mount it and stand on the rim as if it were a squatty potty.  One was so amazed that the water left the bowl, that he sent his hand down after it! Another nice thing about the new school is that we now have a shower in the bathroom in order to hose off potty accidents.  That has gotten some use over the past few weeks! :)

Another exciting thing going on with Freedom is that we welcomed 2 new members to the team last week! 

Katie and Kurt Cline welcomed twin boys into the world last Tuesday (June 17th)! Max Russell and Derek Thomas entered the world at 5.25lbs each! Katie is doing well and so are the boys. They are currently in the NICU but are hoping to be released within the next couple days. Please pray that the boys would continue to grow strong and healthy and also for Katie and Kurt as they start on this new path of parenthood!

We once again can’t say thank you enough for all the prayers and support you have already given us! If you would like to hear more about what Freedom is doing in the DR and also about our journey to get down there, feel free to contact us and we would be happy to meet you for coffee and chat! We love you all!
