Dear Friends and supporters,
"Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return". (Luke, 6:38)
Greetings from Hope School. The new school year 2012/2013 has just started, the playground is filled with old and new faces, each with smiles and hopes for a better future on their faces while the teachers are busy putting new plans, ideas, and preparations to start the educational process.
This school year we have around 90 students, among them we have 15 students at Hope School boarding section. The boarders are supervised by our formal Hope school graduate, Saba, who has taken a job as a housefather to support his University fees. Saba is a wonderful big brother to our boarders. It is always good to see how fruitful our work is through our graduates, to see them taking the right path in life. We accepted 40 new students this year, they are doing well and getting to know the rest of the students.
We wish all the best to the three teachers who have left us to join other schools or retired, we welcome three new teachers in our staff, they are well educated and have University degrees.
The morning devotion is held every school day at the school Chapel. Our aim is to advance the educational abilities as well as the spiritual lives of our students. Our faith is strengthened in difficult times. We, at Hope school are facing a severe financial situation, we have lots of outstanding bills and our loyal teachers are giving the best, at the time of being unpaid for the third month in a row. At Hope School we are one family united by God’s word, we are bound together in difficult times believing that our Lord is standing beside us and will never let us down.
This is a call to each and every one of you, please pray for Hope School, pray for the poor and orphan children in our care, we don’t want to let any child away, we want to continue serving the needy and poor in the name of our savior Jesus Christ. Please ask you church, friends, relatives and neighbors to pray for us at this difficult financial time, we need to hold hands together in prayers.
Our mighty Lord has done miracles in Hope School, from such a small school in its beginning to a big high school, with a high reputation within our community. Students who lost hope in other schools join Hope School and from here they graduate with high averages, and are full of Hope, Faith, and better opportunities for the future. From very limited financial recourses, we continue our mission depending on our Lord and our group of believers, to supply our needs.
We praise our Lord Jesus Christ for all His blessings towards our school and mission. We thank you deeply for your prayers and support.
Please pray for the following:
- pray for us to be able to provide food for our students at the boarding section
- to be able to pay the teachers salaries
- to be ble to get fuel for heating the bedrooms in the cold damp winter
- to pay the outstanding bills
- to strengthen our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ always, to pass His message to all the children in our care
