“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

Quality Kindergarten – Bless the Children (ages 3 – 6) has been closed for 3 years (2 yrs due to covid restrictions). Over the last few months, the staff has been preparing for the school to reopen. 

On Jan. 23rd we started with 15 children; today we have 40. Although running a school was nothing new to Sharon, it has been far more work than we had anticipated. Through
long nights and little frustrations God has been faithful.

We are excited to be able to sow not only educationally into children who may not otherwise, be able to afford school but more importantly to be able to sospiritually into their lives and to their whole family as relationships are built.

We praise God for the teachers and 40 students He has brought to us.
We praise God we have been able to develop and print our own 
This helps to raise the expected standard and saves the teachers a lot of work.
(That is writing everything out for each subject, for every student, in their workbooks).

Pray for the teachers, the students, and their families.
We are still working with the local authorities on updating the school registration.
It too has taken longer and is costing more than expected.

It’s not so much on whether we will receive the registration but when. We’re not sure much it will cost as there is not a set rate and lots of requirements. Operating until final approval received is not an issue. Many schools operate years without registering but we want to honour God in all we do.

Pray for favour and provision. (The current estimated cost is $300).
