Back To School Sale

It is time for the kids to return to school for Term II!  They have enjoyed a holiday for about three weeks.  This second term will end in mid August.  Thank God that once again we were able to pay most of the school fees, we just have one child's fees yet to be covered.  We want to thank all of you for supporting us to make this all happen.  We are still lacking in a few areas and we have come up with a new page that is called Our Current Needs, you can see the tab on top of this page just under the header.

While you are at it you may take a look at these other new tabs as well.  We have added tabs for Prayer Requests, Be a Missionary, Become a Sponsors, Meet The Authors, and Visit Our Web Site.  Our hope is with this new feature that more people will connect and participate with us!  

If you notice, the Prayer Requests is specifically for you to tell us where you need prayers.  Our children have learned to pray for others around the world.  This way they are loving their neighbor as themselves and learning not to focus on their own problems.  They see and understand how they can make a difference in other people's lives by the power of prayer.  You may also consider attaching a photo, the kids love seeing pictures.

So what is the BACK TO SCHOOL SALE?
We would like to introduce you to our sponsorship program if you are not presently involved in it.  When you become a sponsor of the Door of Hope Family you will be known as an Auntie or Uncle to the children.  We encourage you to exchange letters and pictures with any or all of the children.  It is the combined effort of several people that makes this project work. 

 Our successes can be seen when we look at just one child's life.
Johnny was on the street in 2008 when he was found by a missionary team.  He is 11 years old and had never been to school.  He was abused by his step mother which was ignored by his father, which is a common problem here.  We first met him in 2008 while he was in a temporary home and we brought  him here in January of '09 to join us at the Door of Hope.  He did not speak English and school was very difficult at first.  He is now top in his class and we can hold a conversation in English.  He loves to fix things like a handy man, he also loves farming, and is a really great tree climber!  He is also blessed with a wonderful sense of humor! 
  Praise God!

We have three levels of sponsorship.
