26 Dec Are You Ready to Help?
We are thankful for God’s blessings through our matching funds campaign, generously supplied by Davis & Davis Lawyers. Not only have we received $3000 (matched by Davis & Davis), but Jimmy received a sponsor within 24 hours. God is working in mighty ways. We believe our other boys will receive sponsors from families like yours. You can read about Jimmy’s story and Davis & Davis Lawyers’ generous matching funds here.
God continues to bless SHIP. We have an anonymous donor who wants to match an additional $2500 donated this year. There is still time to double your donation to SHIP this week.
Would you pray about donating to SHIP’s work in El Salvador?
One reality we deal with is the schooling available in our neighborhood—unchallenging, often dangerous schools, that are the only option for even our youngest neighbors. After seeing the lack of positive educational opportunities in our neighborhood, SHIP began providing scholarships for children in 2014.
We found that those youngest children, who started kindergarten with a SHIP sponsorSHIP, now our third and fourth graders, are excelling. They have a strong education foundation, and that is making all the difference in their learning.
This year, we had more than 60 applicants. In a giant leap of faith and after much prayer, we accepted 26 of those children into the sponsorSHIP program, for a total of 81 children that SHIP is sending to school.
Do we have sponsors for all those children? Not yet.
Do we trust God to supply the funds? Absolutely YES.
We have an incredible opportunity to make the new year special for these kids . . . and you can take part. What better way to start 2018 than to sponsor one of our students!
I would love to be able to tell each of our students that someone in the United States thinks that they are as special as I do.
Will you be that special person?
To sponsor one of our students:
Go to http://SHIPinternational.org/
Follow the prompts to pick out your student.
We will wish your child “Merry Christmas” from you during our January Christmas Celebration. We will also assure him or her that someone is standing alongside as the new school year begins in January.
Remember that your December sponsorSHIP will be matched by our anonymous donor.
If you prefer to make a one-time donation, we are so appreciative. You can make that donation by clicking here.

P.S. Private Christian school in El Salvador is a bargain compared to the cost in the United States. For only $100 a month, you can change a child’s future with the gift of education.
Please pray about supporting one of our students.
