Our new school, Alpha, in Puerto Escondido Mexico is open!
Have a peek…
Over the past 25 years WOEI has aided in the start of three elementary schools in Mexico and one in India. Being involved in areas of curriculum development, planning, facility building, provision of supplies, etc., we have found that the Christian education is the leading strategy to reach entire families with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Working with children provides a great opportunity to reach parents (through intentional parenting seminars) and in doing so impact their marr1age, relationships, business and ultimately reach the community as a whole.
Thank you for partnering in providing…
A bus for India school
Solar panels for India school facility
A bus and a missionary car for Marshal Islands
Children Home renovations and repairs
70% of expenses for music camp
Monthly support for Chiria and other Ministry projects
By the time you read this letter we will have traveled to Chiria for the third time this year. It has been exciting to work to re-structure, maximize and upgrade the present facility and
programing in planning the future of Chiria. Colossians 3:23-24 encourages us to, “work with all of our heart, for the Lord and not for men… since it is the Lord Jesus Christ we are serving”.
The last part of this verse, gives us the focus and energy to work with everything in us, for “HIM” alone. Our new board of directors for Chiria has adopted this verse concerning the task of rebuilding Chiria. Each member has come from different states of Mexico and from a variety of professional backgrounds.
However, they have one thing in common; they serve Chiria because they are serving Him. Their expertise as teachers, computer programmers, accountants, pastors, engineers,
business people and parents give quality input to forming the lives of the children of Chiria. Children who otherwise would be trapped in lives of abuse, addiction, poverty, sex
trafficking and even death.
Following is a list of exciting and important upgrades and changes that are taking place to make Chiria the place of love and excellence the Lord has planned it to be!
- New local Chiria Board of Directors
- Hiring of a an accountant who specializes on Non-Profits Organizations
- New paint on whole facility
- Sewer drainage repair of the whole facility
- New kitchen cabinets
- Vitamins and nutritional meals for Chiria provided by Herbal Life Inc.
- New pavers in the court yard
- Addition of a bilingual christian school with great academic excellence along with specialized music and art workshops.
Needs for Chiria:
- Enrollment fee for students for summer music camp $1,100.00 (Need ASAP)
- New electrical wiring
- English speaking teachers for the fall semester
- and your continued monthly support!
Chiria Classrooms and Graduation
Here are some photos from our recent medical mission trip to Mexico.
January through May this year (2016) we have provided 59 brand new beds to children sleeping on floors in our local area in Florida. These children cannot choose where they are forced to sleep. Helping a child obtain a bed to sleep on is a life changing experience. For many it is the first bed they could call their own. For as little as $33,000.00 per year we can provide a new bed per child per day! This includes the frame, box spring and mattress and in many cases, sheets, comforter and pillow.
