Five years ago we set out on a journey to change lives with the Gospel as the essential tool in our tool box and broken education and job environments the workplace that was sending children at a horrendous rate into human trafficking – not by their choice, but as slaves. It took us two years to gain sufficient context and language understanding to see exactly how God had prepared us to bring transforming opportunities to those affected and to do it so that God is the one who is glorified when the captives are set free.
Now we have seen his transformation take shape. We have seen local leaders rise up and take charge and bring change. The joy that surrounds these “change managers” who understand that education and job opportunities alone are only the beginning, that real change only occurs with the Gospel, these are the folks who will change their world.
We are merely their mentors. (Read Isaiah 61)
We are eager to see this movement grow. But to do it we need financial seed to get more classrooms opened and hopefully new schools started. Each classroom modestly equipped, staff trained and started. We have a financial, model now proven, in the first school and want to repeat it to create a dynamic interacting brotherhood of schools all focused on the Gospel.
We have three driving directives:
1. Glorify God
2. Teach about God
3. Witness about God
Each of these gets flooded daily into the staff and student of the school. It is 8-10 hours a day of discipleship into newly trained teachers who in turn witness into the lives of the local children who also hear and live in the Gospel environment 8-10 hours every day of the week. Disciples making disciples who witness in their community.
Here is a picture from the front of Purple School. It is the first and now clearly demonstrated model of a school established to be self-sustaining and it is growing rapidly both in enrollment and in influence.
Now, we have been offered another site to start another school using the same model.
It takes seed funding to make this happen. We need deposits, desks, chairs and marker boards. Supplies and start-up staffing costs. The model is designed to result in self-sustainability inside of 2 years. The first school is well ahead of the target. We have learned a lot. We have demonstrated a lot. And the reputation has now resulted in invitations to start new schools in communities where children suffer both financial and educational poverty and therefore are susceptible to human trafficking. The work we are advancing is a game changer. The people we work with are community changers. They are all in with the power of the Gospel.
