There have been some exciting events at Bethel Children's Centre this year. Huruma has supported the building of a second story at the Centre to house additional children. Typically, students go to high school starting in the 9th grade, and most of them go to a boarding school, which is the largest single expense for the Centre. When the construction is finished, this will allow Bethel to create a 9th grade at the school and keep the students for an additional year. This will be a tremendous benefit to the children to be able to stay at Bethel for an additional year. In addition, in the long term, it will reduce costs. In other news, the Centre has a record number of high school students this year (21 total). The cost for each student is approximately $250 per school term or $750 per year. We really need sponsors for these children for this year. If you are interested in providing support for one of these children for this year, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Jericho Road
This is the blog of Huruma International Ministries. Huruma seeks to fulfill our calling to "go and do likewise" as instructed by Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan. The lesson of the Good Samaritan is not about achieving spiritual success through our own efforts. No, what we learn is that we are to give mercy, because we have been given mercy. We are all poor and needy. We are all travelers on the Jericho Road
