Hope in Christ - 7th Grade Young People - Going to Secondary School

We give all Praise and Glory to God that all 17 children who sat the 7th Grade exams at Hope in Christ in December 2017 have been funded to go to Secondary School for this year at a cost of around £200 / $200 per child. Partners Across the Miles from the Christian Service Centre Church in Arizona and Chepstow Methodist Church in the UK along with other friends in the UK & USA have been praying and working together to get these children to school.

During February 2018 this has been an amazing journey as we have seen the Lord answer prayers for these children; we are both amazed and so grateful to everyone who has prayed and to those who have given where they were to.

The names of the young people going to school are.....

12 Girls: Justine, Mildred, Joice, Enara, Enedy, Natasha, Mercy, Ireen, Sandra, Bibiana, Patricia & Charity

5 Boys: John, Vincent, Moses, Charles & Thomas.

Please keep them in your prayers and especially pray that God would guide their future lives, protect and bless them. “The Lord Bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you ; the Lord turn His face to you and give you peace.” Number 6:24-26

Let’s all echo and shout aloud this Praise to the Lord which you hear so often from the Zambian people….. God is Good, All of the Time, All of the Time, God is Good. Paul Swala told us that they are literally “jumping up and down Praising God at Hope in Christ and the 7th Grade Children give very grateful thanks to all who have been praying and helped out with funding.”

From Paul Swala at Hope in Christ - 28 February 2018

I am so full of joy to see the girls and the boys go to Secondary School. Today some started receiving uniforms from their selected schools and some  tomorrow and Friday.

Friends, only God knows the best way to reward you. Without your help these children could have no means to go back to school which for the twelve girls could have meant early marriages and prostitution and for the five boys they may only have lived on the streets.

We gave bags and books to each one and paid the school fees and now they have started reporting to schools.

Thank you all again - God Bless you
