US Church example to others

By September 11, 2006

USA (MNN/HGI) — Just after the election of Haitian President Rene Preval and the world’s recent commitment of $750 million to help rebuild the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, there’s still much work to do.

Today roads, education, health and sanitation are in a shambles. While the country waits for this help, it’s dependant on outside assistance to get by.

Christian schools continue to be one the most important parts of that help.

Hopegivers International is helping a pastor care for 17 orphans. He also oversees a Christian Day School, which is now in its second year. However, classes almost didn�t start on time.

According to Hopegivers, over the summer, the landlord of the building decided to raise the rent and funding wasn’t available to pay for it. Hopegivers put out a call for help and a South Florida church donated the money needed to open the doors so that more than 250 students can not only get an education, but hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

According to Hopegivers, while the building needs have been met, they still need funding for benches, desks, chalkboards, books, supplies and compensation for teachers. Hopegivers believes education is one of the fundamental hopes that need to be fulfilled for every orphaned and abandoned child, which can ultimately point them to Christ.
