Dear <<First Name>>,

In various ways, Forerunner is now entering a new season. This summer Johan has officially changed jobs and now works at YwaM instead of Forerunner. Furthermore, in India and Myanmar the new school year has just started. In this newsletter more about both topics. 

Johan and Alette in Thailand
Back from Thailand, Johan attended his very last Forerunner meeting as director of the foundation. June was the last month he worked for Forerunner and from July on he is officially a YwaM staff member. Johan, Alette and family have also moved to the Youth with a Mission base in Amsterdam. 
More about their DTS experiences in Thailand, move and start of the new era in Amsterdam you can read in their own newsletter which you will receive from now on. 

Growth towards adulthood

The work of Forerunner and the personal work of Johan and Alette have been inextricably linked over the past 7 years. It has grown together and developed together to the point that Forerunner is now a strong and independent foundation with many projects, one of which is the life and vocation of Johan and Alette. 
We thank you for so many years of empathy, praying, supporting and being part of this great journey. Now that Forerunner has taken this new step to adulthood, there will be a separate newsletter from Johan and Alette, while you will also continue to receive this Forerunner newsletter. 

Two newsletters 
We have assumed that you feel involved with both Forerunner and with Johan and Alette personally, and would like to be kept informed of both. If that is not the case, you are of course free to unsubscribe from the newsletter in question at the bottom of the footer.  
What you can expect to read in Johan and Alette’s newsletter probably speaks for itself; their developments in family, ministry, travel etc. In the Forerunner newsletter you can expect to see news about the various beautiful projects that fall under the foundation and much more.  
In short: you don't have to do anything if you want to continue to receive both newsletters! 

Children in Myanmar

The new school year 
Here in the Netherlands the school year has just ended, but in India and Myanmar vacation is during their hottest months (April and May) and the new school year starts in May/June. For the poor children in these countries going to school is not a matter of course, every year they have to see if it will be possible to continue their education.  
Every year new school fees have to be paid and new schoolbooks, uniforms, writing materials and other resources are bought. For the projects that Forerunner supports, this is a big challenge, because it is not about 2 or 3 children, but a large group. At the moment there is enough to buy food, but not enough money yet for all the school supplies. 
We therefore ask you to consider sharing some of your (holiday) money with the children in our projects so that they can go to school for another year. You can do this by making a one-time donation to Forerunner under the banner of 'school fees'. For the children in Myanmar about € 600 is needed this year to be able to send the children back to school, for the children in the New Grace Home in India this is about € 900. 

Children in India

Structural support for the children
In addition, for these projects it is necessary to receive more monthly support for the maintenance and care of the children. Until now, most of these funds have come from Forerunner in general, but we have to wait every month to see if there is enough extra money available to send them so that they can buy rice etc. If you want to contribute monthly to the care for the children, make your donation under mention of 'support a child' we will divide the received donations fairly between the projects in India and Myanmar.
In the next newsletter we will share more information about the New Grace Home in India, led by Sarat and the 45 children at David Lawma in Myanmar. 

Blessings, Forerunner team
