Romans 8:28 “We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.”
STARTING OUR OWN LITTLE SCHOOL AT PASTURE VALLEY
For a long time we have prayed about whether we should look at schooling the children at Pasture Valley. There are huge responsibilities that go hand in hand with educating a child and running a school. This not only has implications for funding but also needs good teachers and staff to run the school. However, there are advantages for having a small school on the premises. For this reason we have decided that we will homeschool the children that will be entering into Grade one next year. We hope that these children will benefit greatly from a small class and individual attention given to them as well as not having to walk long distances to school each day. Most of all we hope to give them a good foundation in God’s word and teach basic concepts that will form a firm foundation for entering higher grade levels later. We have started to look around at curricula and have bought some books, but there is still much planning ahead as we get school uniforms prepared, daily schedules made up and train teaching staff. We will commit one year at a time but hope we can homeschool the children to the completion of their foundational phase (Grade 4). Please pray with us about this important decision and for wisdom as we embark on this new phase at Pasture Valley
FUN! FUN! FUN! HOLIDAYS ARE HERE.
This holiday a team from Journey Community Church in California led a camp that was full of fun activities for the kids. They danced, dressed up, painted, did skits and outdoor activities and learnt memory verses. The theme was to “have courage”. Some of the children from SOS childrens village also joined in the fun. We are truly grateful to the team that came out.
The children also did a number of other activities as part of their holiday programme including cooking Mexican food and having a Mexican evening. The tortillas the children made were delicious!
LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE - SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
Amitofo Care Centre approached Pasture Valley to allow an outing for their 47 younger children to the farm. We welcomed the children and gave them a farm tour, made crafts, played games and sang worship songs. The children were also given a vegetarian meal and ice cream. We hope they had fun
