For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
For almost 15 years Pam and I along with our mission teams have been working in a village called, "PASCUALA." I’m sure many of you have served beside us and have many fond memories of your time serving there. A few years ago GOD led us to start building houses and move many of the families there from plastic houses into something much better. Many of you helped us to work through this and we are continuing to build those houses as God provides the funding. Even through this Pam and I have never really gotten a peace about what God would have us to do as far as the NEXT STEP. Well, a couple of months ago this all changed. We had an opportunity to purchase the school in Pascuala and take over the day to day operations.
Praise God that one of our partners stepped up and made the purchase possible and as of last week the deal has been completed. Our plan as of today is to turn the day to day operation over to the Baptist School and continue to see how all this plays into the will of GOD for BWCM. I do know that it opens many doors as far as teaching in the village. I’m planning for our team next week to work with all the mothers and begin a weekly Bible Study. Please join us in praying for the future of our work in Pascuala and for the Baptist School as they begin transforming the school there.
With all this being said I want to give you the opportunity to help with the funding of the school by sponsoring a child. We have 34 students in elementary school and 120 in high school. We are asking our friends to sponsor these children at a cost of $250.00 per year per child. With the sponsorship we will purchase each child 2 new uniforms, a pair of shoes, monthly medical and all the school supplies. If you are interested in sponsorship simply e-mail me at "donald" and I will answer your questions and provide needed info. PRAYING AS WE PROCEED…..
