Families Receive the Deeds to Their Property
I wish each of you could have been present January 7th as the families received the deeds to their property. In an emotional ceremony, Founder Cheryl Avery presented eight families with the rights to their homes and two acres of farmland.
As I looked at the room of people I now know as friends, I understood more than ever that I was witnessing a miracle. God held the hands of each one as they faced and overcame fear, malnutrition, depression, illiteracy, lack of a water supply, funding concerns and poor quality schools, not to mention everyday challenges such as personality conflicts, boredom and parenting issues.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation;
the old has gone, the new has come! 2Corinthians 5:17
School Director Ervin Dreams of the Future
The following comments are from School Director Ervin Ruiz responding to questions about his hopes for Chacocente Christian School.
“Our vision is to distinguish ourselves, in the Municipality of Masaya, by the quality
of our educational services, with qualified personnel, supplied with didactic and bibliographic material. This will permit us
to diminish the dropout and repetition rates, with the active participation of the parents. Since 2012 we have expanded to include grades 7, 8, 9 and 10. With God’s help we are adding grade 11, the final year of high school in Nicaragua, in 2014.”
