Latest Hotel Dieu for Women News - In  Brief

We need an appraisal of the home and insurance in order to complete the process of getting a mortgage since my father's estate still has not come through.
 The vendors have agreed to a Nov 5th closing extension and we are still trying to find out the closing costs.
One possible first mortgage has been found through Robert of Mortgage Ontario for $24K -see below.
Bibles for Missions may be interested in helping us set up a gently used store which would serve the community and also provide needed skills training for the women at the Hotel Dieu for Women.
UHaul is interested in helping us set up a storage facility and UHaul business - no franchise fees only internet and phone costs - about $30 per month and potential monthly earnings of $300 from UHaul . This will give us the ability to help women needed relocation.
We have been offered lumber for building furniture ie bunk beds by Harry Peeters of Omemee Christian Outreach - please pray for tools, willing hands and mattresses.
We have been offered a fundraising Blue Grass Gospel concert - please pray for a venue.
A very talented Baker may be joining us to offer training in both plain baking and cooking and cake decorating and help us to set up a cafe and bakery so women can earn money towards the paths to which God is calling them.
 Your prayers for our first Hotel Dieu for Women would be very much appreciated as we transition into our first opening.
What is a Hotel Dieu for Women? 
Hostel of God for Women
Hotel Dieu for Women in my understanding of the vision and dream I received is as follows:
Hotel Dieu for Women:
 Whether it is for an hour , a day, or a season
 A place for Women to BE and 
See themselves through the Loving Eyes of God.
It is a smoke free, scent-free inter-generational home where women take part in Bible study, as well as life skills such as gardening,cooking,crocheting, knitting, sewing and are restored into the destiny God has determined for them.
Why Fauquier Ontario? 
The floor plan of the building in Fauquier Ontario is amazingly like the dream God gave me. A Hotel Dieu for Women is desperately needed in the Cochrane Ontario Area. You can confirm this with the Cochrane Food Bank and Cochrane Victim Services.
God placed the following location across my path through the prayers of Guy Durette and his wife and has set many divine appointments in place regarding it including a doctor willing to visit once a month and give refugees free medical check ups.
Formerly this was a 3 bedroom apartment, grocery store and restaurant. It has a huge Quonset behind the building and parking for 15 vehicles. It is located on lots 37-39 Government Road (Hwy 11) Fauquier Ontario
You will find links to the following below:

We are down to the wire. The funds need to come through by November 5th, 2015.
A Snapshot of the History of Hotel Dieu for Women
We were told I would be receiving at least $50K  from my father's estate by March 31st.
After much prayer and consultation, we made an offer of $58K with a Vendor take back of $10K on a property that was listed originally at $144K.
Donald and Denise LaMontagne of Fauquier generously accepted this offer.
March 31st only part of the estate funds were released($25K) because 2 pieces of property still needed to be sold.
This $25 K is on deposit with the lawyer Garth Whitford LLC towards the purchase of the property.
The vendors have agreed to a Vendor Take Back Second Mortgage of $10K at 5% amortized over 25 years. Therefore, we need the difference plus closing costs, insurance and a down payment for the heat and hydro.
Help getting to Fauquier and furniture, bedding etc would be greatly appreciated as well.
The vendors have just agreed to extend the closing date to November 5th.
Now my father's estate funds need to come through, or we need a mortgage to come through by November 30th 2015.
