Summer 2013

Welcome to the SONBeam, the SON Foundation Newsletter. We are so excited that you have decided to partner with us; to help us turn a dream into a reality. Starting as a vague idea with a simple mission, the SON Foundation has quickly been molded into an organization that will provide low-cost housing to adult cancer patients and their families/caregivers. Our first SON Foundation House will serve the IU Health Simon Cancer Center. We are currently purchasing our first home and hope to have possession by mid-September. The SON Foundation has a dedicated Board of Directors (pictured above), which currently meets on a monthly basis. Each Board Member has a unique God-given talent, which he/she brings to the foundation in order to make it whole. Thank you for supporting and praying for the SON Foundation as we begin our journey of Serving Others’ Needs.

Can You Trust God?

Thank You for Your Generous Support!
Friend Away From Home ($500) Kevin Kervan (Kervan Insurance) Supporters:

As this verse eludes, we will all face adversity, trauma, pain, etc in this world. It is in these moments that we are tempted to wonder if we can trust God. When you are faced with this question, remember these three truths: 1. God in His love always wills what is best for us. 2. In His wisdom He always knows what is best. 3. In His sovereignty He has the power to bring it about. (Excerpts from Trusting God Even When Life Hurts by Jerry Bridges) Jesus assures us in John 16:33, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." A comforting promise indeed! When you are experiencing any trial, remember to "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding." -Proverbs 3:5 By Tiffany Thompson

 Prayer Requests 
At the SON Foundation, we believe in the power of prayer and trust that God will respond. We would be blessed to have you pray for the SON Foundation. Some specific prayer requests that we currently have: For God to provide funding for budgeted needs. For God to guide the Executive Director and the Board to wisely plan the logistics of preparing and opening the house to guests. For people to come to know Christ through their experience with this organization. We appreciate your continued prayer and support for the SON Foundation.
