“One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mightly acts.” Psalm 145:4

At Quality Foundation School, the mission extends beyond academic excellence; it’s about nurturing future leaders with a strong moral compass. The curriculum is infused with a biblical perspective, aiming to instill values such as integrity, leadership, and a sense of global responsibility. The goal is not only to prepare students for professional success but also to empower them to make a positive difference in the world, guided by their faith and the desire to bring God’s love to the nations.

We believe God can do what we can not, so in a step of faith this year we expanded the school from baby kindergarten starting at (age 3) up to grade 3 (age 8). This would double the number of classes and teachers needed.

We had a faith goal of 50 to 60 students for this current school year. At one point, it looked like it would not happen but today we have 98 students. This was an exciting answer to prayer.

With this, however, came the challenge of overcrowded rooms and a lack of teachers. This has called for lots of flexibility over the first few weeks of school. Sharon had to set aside other projects to help teach. We want teachers with a heart for ministry and a gift to teach children. Two months later God did so much.

We now have teachers who love God and His word. They are working together and going the extra mile so we can build the kingdom together, with each bringing their gifts. We included the staff and students in the vision to pray and to believe for new classrooms. It was an opportunity for them to see God working and answering prayer.

The completion of the new classrooms, equipped with large blackboards and abundant natural light is a blessing. This development was achieved without additional financial burden to the ministry.

We give God thanks and stand amazed at what He is doing. “For is it God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfil His good purpose.” Philippians 2:13

Above: The children were led in prayer, and worship as we trusted God together.

Crayons donated by a church are bringing colour, creativity, and smiles to faces both in the school and other areas of ministry.
Also children with a craft donated as they learned about the prodigal son and the loving Father.

From a small banana plantation to a school with room to grow in 2 ½ months. We give God thanks.
