Here are some photos of the progress of our new school set to open in October. Enjoy!

Hello friends, family, and supporters...


Our new school is taking shape as our construction phase is almost complete. There is still some painting to be done, and some outside work, but soon it will all be finished! A big thank you to "Not4Sale" and "Victory Church on the Rock" for funding this part of the project!

This week we began selecting the forty students who will attend our school. We are meeting with the families who live in the surrounding area. The parents are happy to hear that we are opening this school. The kids are very excited. A lot of them have never been to school before, and they're already 8 or 9 years old. Most, if not all, of these families are very poor. Their children don't have the same opportunities that western children do. This poverty puts these kids at risk of entering the slave trade and prevents them from living fruitful lives. We thank God for this opportunity to help change all that! 

Much of the funding to operate the school will come through western sponsorships. These sponsorships will be managed by "Victory Children's Homes". Click here to visit the "Victory Children's Homes" website. Each child can be sponsored for $25 per month. If you would like to know more about this, please contact me at hvmission@gmail.com.

Makara and I would like to thank all of you who have given to us for our personal family support and towards the school project. Many of you have given recently and it has been a real blessing. We are going to visit Edmonton for the month of December this year. As a result, I've had to do a lot of travelling recently to prepare Makara's and Noah's paperwork--that gets expensive! So again, thank you to all who have given.

Thank you for following along with us in our work through these newsletters--more to come soon.
