Zambia: Serving Even When School’s Out

Source: Lifesong for Orphans .

One of the advantages of year round schooling is that the kids have a one month break three times a year.  As a school, it’s our goal to make sure the learning doesn’t stop and the life lessons continue being taught.   This term break we had two amazing events for our students to engage in. The first was a community outreach in partnership with a church in Texas and Mission Regan.  Our kids served right along side of a medical team, not administering prescriptions or pulling teeth, but translating and praying for each and every patient. FBC McKinney and Mission Regan were able to give high quality medical care, some life saving, to over 1,700 people in the Garneton Community – all for free (pictured above).  The second life lesson that our students learned was while they were at J-Life Camp. We had 44 students, and 2 AMAZING TEACHERS, … Continue reading

Taking Education to the Next Level

Source: Lifesong for Orphans .

Growing new LEADERS each year, while keeping families TOGETHER… Taking Education to the Next Level… Tsigereda and many of her classmates have diligently worked their way through grade school, approaching secondary education, an opportunity that few have, considering that 97% of girls in her community do not attend high school, let alone graduate.  By building a High School, students like Tsigereda are given the opportunity most would not normally have. Opportunities to continue the growth that has started to shape them into the next leaders- business leaders, political leaders, government leaders, spiritual leaders and family leaders-of Ethiopia and Africa!  “This High School is very important to city of Ziway and the people. We have spiritual education that helps students to grow spiritually and not get involved in worldly things. To those near and far that support us, I say may God be with you.” - Excerpt from letter written by Tsigereda, 9th … Continue reading

New Students, Same Gospel {Lifesong India}

Source: Lifesong for Orphans .

  This is a very busy time for our six children’s homes in India. Summer vacation has ended and we are now in the process of enrolling 2014-2015 class of children. Of the 580 children we serve, about 100 will be joining us for the first time. They will replace those who have moved on after having completed their education through high school or college.   At least 90% of our children will come from poor, untouchable-caste families with a heritage of idol worship. They come to us looking for food, clothing and a secular education. While in our care, they will receive all of that but will also receive twice-daily lessons from the WORD. In time, many will accept Jesus as the ONE TRUE GOD and will be baptized. We are convinced that it is the “prayers of the saints” that will cause the hearts to become open to the … Continue reading
