To Build a School

Today we officially reached 100% of the fund raising for the school in Ghana. JD had the honor of accepting the finish line crossing donation this morning. Here are her words:

I just arrived home from going to the Glen Falls school here in Saint John... one of the poorest schools in our city... where the children, led by their awesome teacher (a woman from my church), pledged to raise 1% of our goal. When someone from the community heard about their initiative, they offered to match whatever they raised up to $300 (also 1%).

As you know, we were currently at 98%...

Were. Past tense.

The Glen Falls school kids were honored and thrilled to help us reach across the finish line this morning... we are now officially at 100%!!!

We still need a few more donations to cover our in-country travel expenses, but are confident that God will continue to provide as He will finish what he has begun.
