Thank you!

To all who supported in 2013, we say thank you very much!  We will not be able to do this work in God's Kingdom without the help of his servants.  We bless you with Numbers 6:24-26:

Please continue to pray for the school's safety and for our children and their families during the holiday season.  Please also pray for our preparation and planning for 2014:  that we will continue to grow God's Kingdom and be His hand and feet in the community.

May you have a blessed Christmas season, remembering the true reason for our celebration.

Thank you so much to all who contributed to making today so special for our kids.  Each child received a gift box with amazing things inside!  The children were overwhelmed with your generosity.

A special thank you to Nicolette and Jeanette who helped to organize the boxes for our kids.  You are such special ladies!

Outreach project to Badiromogo Old Age home

The staff and children of Olievenhoutbosch Christian School had an outreach to Badiromogo Old Age home in Olievenhoutbosch on Tuesday, 24 November.

We collected food and toiletries for the old people.  The children sang some Christmas songs for them.  Our theme for the outreach was:  Finding your joy in Jesus,  focusing especially on Nehemia 8:10:  "The joy of the Lord is your strength."  

We pray that these lovely old people will find their joy in Jesus, and that our children will learn to share the love of Jesus and what they have with other.

Grade 0 Graduation - 2013

What a lovely day of celebration we had on Saturday, 23 November, with our Grade 0 children and parents.  The kids performed the parable of the lost son, as well as a worship dance.  We then handed out their Grade 0 certificates and ended the day with a yummy lunch for our parents and children.
