"Teaching in the Light of Jesus"
How can I help Berhane Yesus?
In Genesis 1:2 we read that darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over it. In the next several verses, we read all about God’s mighty work in the creation, bringing forth light, life, and beauty in its various forms. Just think about it: where there is darkness, the Spirit of God hovers over that darkness, ready to transform it into light, life, and beauty!
Berhane Yesus Elementary School in Dembi Dollo, Ethiopia, serves approximately 600 children who daily face seemingly endless, insurmountable odds. Each year, the school faces significant budget shortfalls and changing government regulations but has carried out its mission since 1921.
Why? Probably because the Spirit of God hovers, changing the darkness into light, giving a hope for new life through a quality education, and offering the beauty of life in Christ because each student is educated in the Light of Jesus each day.
We invite you to pray to see how God might lead you in partnership with His work at BYES. If so led, consider providing....
1. Prayer for our school, students, and staff
2. Annual scholarship for a deserving student ($150)
3. Textbooks ($200 for classroom set)
4. Scholarships for teacher education ($3,200 per teacher to finish college over four summers)
Praise to Christ Jesus, who supplies all our
needs through His children all over the world!
"Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge." ~Psalm 62:8
