NEW SCHOOL YEAR BEGINS IN MOZAMBIQUE
The Colegio Adventista Nova Esperanca (New Hope Adventist School) in Mahotas, Mozambique began its new school year during the last week of January. The primary school has begun its school year with 50 First Grade students. They plan to accept up to 90 children in First Grade this year.
The new preschool building is finished and 40 children are attending with a goal to reach 100 preschoolers. The principal of the school is from Brazil and has returned for her second school year in Mozambique.
We still have opportunities to sponsor children for this school year. For just $20 per month (or $240 per year), you can provide Christian education for a child in Mozambique.
If you would like to support a child, please mark your tithe envelope "Mozambique Scholarships" or pay through online giving in the Mozambique line. You can also join the "Birthday Club" by sponsoring a child in honor of someone's birthday (cards available at the S.o.S. booth or on the bulletin board display in the S.S. wing).
