“I Want To Be A Doctor”
This month, ILF celebrates over 200 students returning to school after summer break. Nearly all of these children are the first in their family lines to attend school of any kind, with the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty for their families and communities. While last year presented many challenges due to Coronavirus, we come into a new school year full of excitement, and much to celebrate!
Revive Christian School students who took the national exam scored an average of 98%, processes and curriculums have become more refined, and staff report an increased determination and unity amongst each other and for their students. We also enter this new school year with the opening of the first secondary school in the area. This allows our graduating students to continue in a gospel centered school setting as well as giving more communities access to our school programs.
This last May, our Board of Directors were able to attend the primary school graduation ceremony in Mankneh. They listened as each student shared what they wanted to be when they were older: “teacher,” “doctor,” even the “President of Sierra Leone” were shared by the proud and enthused students.
When a child who once had little hope, can stand tall and share his or her ambition to be a president or doctor, we know God is doing something significant, beyond what we could have planned or imagined. We know that being a prayer focused ministry, paired with the support of volunteers and financial givers, God will continue to move greatly through ILF. So, we continually thank God for directing us, and thank each of you for your investment in this ministry.
“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6
