(Central America)–Christian school organizers are using hammers and saws along with books and pencils in an effort to reach the lost. Worldwide Christian Schools is utilizing ‘Helping Another Nation Develop Schools’ or H.A.N.D.S. teams to build schools according to WCS spokesman Steven Guerink. “Essentially these teams go to developing countries. Quite frequently Latin America where we help local/national leaders build Christian schools.” Guerink says that effort opens doors to the Gospel. “It’s missions, as we put it, on the cutting edge. It’s easier to reach a child for Christ when they’re open and their hearts are pliable. When people get to be adults, it is so much more difficult to reach them for Christ.” H.A.N.D.S. teams need some training in construction skills and are made up of church, school and community groups. Teams will be in Belize, Honduras and Nicaragua this summer.
