Everyone is busy as students in our HOLD schools have returned!  At the start of September, students and teachers returned for their new school year.  Improvements were made over the summer involving desks, benches, chalkboards, and one school is working on a new playground!  All our schools are hard at work as they make educating these children their top priority.

The past school year in Guatemala resulted in plans for an expansion…Kairos Christian School will be adding a high school for their students! We are excited for all God continues to do through the ministry of the school there.  In Jamaica, students at JCSD reside on campus during the school year; they are excited to return to their school family.  Please pray for continued progress and improvement in the school’s water supply situation.  As always, please keep our students and schools in your prayers!  Pray for teachers to have a renewed excitement for the new school year.  Pray for patience and continued belief in their students as they work very hard to educate them in extremely difficult circumstances.  Please pray for school directors as their role can be quite difficult.  Thank you for your prayers and support of HOLD the Children!
