A Home Away From Home
HIM is growing! Since our founding in 1960, God has called men and women who are taking the gospel around the world and making disciples. Today we have fifty-seven missionaries with twenty-four children, and several families are in the application process. God is still calling!
This growth has created the need for expanded housing to care for missionaries while they are at the home office. We are excited to announce we will soon break ground for a new missionary guesthouse in the center of campus. This housing facility will enable us to better care for missionaries transitioning on and off the ﬁeld, provide housing during home assignments, and furnish additional rooms for guests during events such as Sea Breeze Camp.
In 1946 H. Robb French and his wife Geraldine organized the moving of old military barracks from nearby Camp Murphy that closed at the end of WWII. After seventy-three years of faithful service as a tabernacle, college cafeteria, music building, and camp housing, Finney Hall has fallen into disrepair and will be removed. The new Palm Missionary Guesthouse will be built in its place.
Honoring Missionary Heroes
Named for Drs. Edward and Connie Palm, the Palm Missionary Guesthouse will commemorate their years of ministry with Hope International Missions. The Palms served as HIM missionaries in Taiwan for a number of years: pastoring the ChungLi Bible Holiness church, organizing the children’s ministry, training teachers, and discipling leaders. Their legacy lives on, especially through Connie Palm’s writings for Gospel Publishing Mission. More than two million copies of her works such as Is God Really My Father? are distributed worldwide. Both Drs. Edward and Connie Palm made a lasting impact for the kingdom of God. Their love for missions was evident, and we are delighted to recognize them by dedicating this new guesthouse in their memory!
Will You Help Make it Happen?
The construction cost of this much needed building is estimated at $500,000. By late January God had provided $260,000 through the support of generous donors. During the last weekend of Sea Breeze Camp in February the remaining $240,000 was raised to complete the building structure! We thank God for meeting this need.
We do still need your help with this project. An additional $100,000 is needed to fund site preparation, pave the parking area, complete landscaping, and furnish the building. Would you consider helping us complete this project? A gift of any amount will assist us in caring for our missionaries even more effectively.
