Pictured above, preschool students in our Victory Christian Fellowship School in Montego Bay, Jamaica pose for a group photo!  We have 45 children in this preschool, which is the most that have enrolled since 2019!  We are grateful for all the support that makes preschool education possible for these precious little ones. 

Also in Jamaica, our Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf is doing well; they are so grateful for the rain which is keeping their water tanks full right now.  And they have welcomed five new students this school year!  The school’s Director, Sophia Reid, requests prayer as she grieves the heavy loss of her brother who passed away from cancer last month. 

In Haiti our Onaville School is still meeting in the Canaan location while they clean their building.  When the gangs finally exited Onaville, they left behind large amounts of trash and mess, and vandalized part of the school building.  We are grateful the gangs have moved on, and students can return to their usual school building soon.

In Port de Paix, Haiti our students are hard at work preparing for end-of-year testing.  At our Orphanage, we have heard reports about the older residents that moved out; they are living with extended family members and doing well!  In Cap Haitien, Haiti our CAS school is busy, but there continues to be challenges everyday.  Life in Haiti is difficult and the funds raised for each school can only stretch so far.

In Guatemala, at Kairos, their school year will come to a close soon as they complete final exams and prepare students for graduation.   

Christmas is coming next month!  Please donate to the Christmas Celebrations in our HOLD Schools before December 1.   

Your donations and ongoing support make the ministry of HOLD, His Outreach for Learning and Development, possible.  Thank you!

Gratefully in His Hold,
