Pastor Theo worked hand in hand with Rev. Joseph Ocran our partner in Ghana. They had a mission: to provide education for the children in Balkuy, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
The children currently meet in a temporary building attached to Pastor Theo’s church. The need and dream is to build a proper school. The school currently offers classes from kindergarten to grade three. It is a blessings to be able to help meet the need for education in this mostly Muslim community. It is a tangible way to demonstrate the love of God by providing education and helping to meet this need.
The church and school are housed on a large piece of property that is government owned that has been designated as a school location. Now is the time for us to move ahead and build a proper school as a way to demonstrate our commitment to that community.
The need is for $11,000 to build a two room school house and furnish it with tables and chairs, chalk boards and chalk. Many of the children that currently attend the school, walk for miles carrying their own chair with them!
Pastor Theo loved the children and his ministry in Burkina Faso! Your gift in any amount today is a beautiful way to honour Pastor Theo and his family. You can help continue the work he has started and keep his vision alive!
World Hope Canada began in the year 2000, when Anne Medders and Georgina Hayes were visiting Odessa, Ukraine.
Anyone that has ever spent time with Kerry Allison would hardly believe that he turned 70 yesterday (July 29)! He can work harder than most anyone I know and he has poured himself into our ministry in Ukraine. He builds, he gardens, he practices English with the girls at Hope House, he budgets, he mentors . . . the list goes on and on.
Most recently, he has led the charge to get Hope House II completed and ready for 14 new girls to move into next month. This more than doubles our capacity.
You can honour Kerry’s dedication by sponsoring one of our girls for just $31 a month! Click here to sign up today and help wish Kerry a Happy Birthday!
