    African Good Samaritan Mission
Fall 2009 Newsletter
Hi Dr. R, 
 

Last Fall the African Good Samaritan Mission made a leap of faith as a non-profit organization, in starting the renovation of a rural elementary school classroom block building in West Africa, as our ministry's first Mission project. I was away in Africa until early Spring 2009 to supervise the school renovation project.

First Mission project --Well, we finished plastering and painting, and brought smiles to the faces of the children and their teachers.  Renovated block.JPGIn addition, we were able to distribute school supplies to the children as school started in January, thanks to our international managers who donated several bundles of notebooks, pens and pencils!.

 Looking Forward--This year,  in  November ,  I will be leaving for Africa to supervise the next Mission project. This time we hope to finish the inside painting of two of the old classrooms in the  rural elementary school classroom block  which we were not able to finish last year due to shortage of funds.  In addition,  we  will be focusing on our new projects including our Hope Scholarship fund  as noted under future projects below.

 Also, last year we were dependent on using the personal SUV car belonging to our international manager.  To become more mobile, we need to have a vehicle for transportation, more precisely an SUV  that can face the bad condition of the  rural  roads.

 Future Mission projects!!

1. Classrooms Painting
2. Hope Scholarships


It  is obvious that education plays a central role in breaking the cycle of poverty. Our scholarship will give poor children who are brilliant,  the opportunity  to obtain high school education, and dream of a better future.  
Our HOPE Scholarship stands for Helping Overcome Poverty through Education.  Currently the  sponsorship for a child cost about $200 per year, and this will keep each child  in school by paying tuition, providing books and uniforms, and after school coaching.  

IMG_0346Not many people can visit Africa to see the extent of the effect of poverty, and the  need for education. But you can help  the African Good Samaritan Mission meet these needs. Your assistance by your donation means so much to our Mission, but even more to the children in the poor rural areas of Africa that will be benefitting through your kind donation.

For our campaign fund this year, we are hoping to raise $15,000 , which will go towards future  projects, and  transportation in the rural areas.

Please help us "Spread the Word", by  ‘telling- a- friend', and through forwarding thismission 2 email to at least 5 friends . You never know who the Lord may be leading to help this Ministry in  meeting the needs of these poor children in Africa.

How can you help?
You can decide to sponsor a child, or donate towards renovation projects. If you can't sponsor a child you can contribute to the Hope Scholarship fund.

However, if you can sponsor a child ,the picture of your sponsred child will be sent to you in Spring when I return from our Mission project. You will also receive yearly report cards on the child you sponsor. You can decide to sponsor a girl or a boy, but the most area of need is with girls, who often drop out after elementay school education.
