Most of you have already heard the sad news from Hope School. Solomon Nour, the headmaster for many years, passed away in his sleep on August 5. His death was unexpected and a tremendous loss to both his family and to Hope School.
Anyone who visited Hope School in the past several decades knew Solomon. His tireless efforts brought the school into the 21st century with modern science and computer labs, access for disabled students, and literary and scientific curricula. He developed and expanded the chicken farm to produce funds for day-to-day school expenses, freeing sponsor donations to go directly to student education. The wide base of sponsors he developed, both individuals and organizations, kept the ministry going, as did his own personal financial contributions. His warmth and welcoming smile always gave visitors a sense of home-coming that will bemissed.
Please pray for his soul to be among Angels in Heaven.
