WHAT LOVE CAN DO!
Last fall the JK and SK classes of Stratford & District Christian School raised money so NGM Royal Academy could have an end of year party (See our December Update for photos and more info)! The fundraising didn't stop at just a party though - there was an overflow of $500 beyond the $100 used for the party day!
SDCS's LOVE OVERFLOW purchased 45 chairs and 4 tables, sponsorship (including full school uniforms) for our Junior Back 2 School students (children whose families were unable to send them to school due to lack of finances) and school supplies - including pens, coloured pencils, balls, toilet brushes, text books/teacher guides, etc...
THANK YOU SDCS!!!
While we're on the subject of WHAT LOVE CAN DO, I want to make quick mention that since the January Newsletter approximately 25 of our 60 B2S student's school fees have been paid and the money to buy 6 mattresses has also been donated! We praise God for these blessings as well as for some more school supplies and 8 more uniforms!
Not only have monetary donations come in but also 2 banana boxes full of toiletries, school supplies and other blessings! Early last fall Beverly Powell (see her LOVEmber devotional) and her volunteer friends connected with Sew On Fire and Loads of Love ministries - asked if they could send us a few boxes along with a container sent to another ministry in Zambia! The other ministry graciously agreed and this week Happy was able to go and get the boxes full of blessings from Village of Hope, Kitwe!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SENT EXTRA GIFTS THIS MONTH
TO MAKE THESE BLESSINGS A REALITY! AND THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THE BANANA BOXES TOO!
LOVE can do exploits impacting so many lives for good - bringing smiles to faces, clothes to wear, mattresses to sleep on...
