We’ve been working off and on throughout the summer getting this website ready to share with the world. Now that it is done, it’s time for a new goal!
When we met with Pastor Gilbert this past May, one of the big topics of discussion was how we can implement a consistent school lunch program. Gilbert feels confident that once we have 100 children sponsored, a school lunch program would be sustainable for the entire school! We’ve felt from the beginning that feeding the children meals on a daily basis is an important part of this ministry. Most of these children get only one meal a day, and in the wake of tropical storm Isaac, food may be even more scarce for the poorer families in the village.
Currently, we have 38 children sponsored, so comparatively speaking, 100 is a big number! How can you help? First, you can pray. We know that our God owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and He has already shown us that he can and will provide more than we know to ask or even think. Second, it would be
huge if you could help get the word out about The Bridge sponsorship program. Share a link to this website with your friends and family via email or on your Facebook page or blog.
We are praying that this website will be a good way to not only communicate with our current sponsors, but also to share our vision with a greater audience and hopefully be able to make an even bigger impact for God’s glory in the village of Carrefour Poy.
If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? James 2:15-16
