From a very young age God gave Angela the gift to teach and encourage. When she married, Angela was able to take her passion for teaching anywhere the Marine Corps sent her husband, so she had experiences teaching all over the world, including Africa and Japan.
According to the UN over 10.5 million school aged children are out of school. God opened Angela’s eyes to a need, and with the assistance of her friend, David, they started School of HOPE. School of HOPE is bringing hope to a community filled with people whose lives have been shattered by terrorism. The School of HOPE is not just a school–it has become the gathering place for the community, especially for the orphans and widows. The school grounds are being utilized for children’s education by day, and at night, they are available for trade classes and as a venue for community meetings. HOPE also helps provide basic needs such as food, hygiene supplies, and blankets for those who are orphaned and widowed in the community. God is working in mighty ways, bringing those who are lost and hopeless to knowing the love only God can provide. When you give to HOPE, you are fighting oppression and persecution for this generation and the generations to come. You may be purchasing schools supplies for a child, building a classroom that creates a safe environment for children to thrive in, or possibly even buying a blanket for a child who has lost his/her entire family. No matter how much you give, you are not just helping one child gain an education, you are spreading the love of God and giving hope of a brighter tomorrow to an entire community.
Please pray for us as we continue to trust God as he orchestrates this mission.
Pray for the internally displaced people who are forced into poorly equipped camps and have no means of income to provide food, shelter, or clothing for their families. Many are suffering from malnutrition and many are dying daily.
Please pray for protection over David and for all the teachers who risk their lives educating the children.
Pray for those who have been kidnapped and families that are left without their loved ones.
Please pray for the hearts of the terrorists to be softened and they will repent and leave the lifestyle that has destroyed so many innocent lives.
