Dear Friends and Sponsors of Teach Feed Love,
We are blessed by your prayers, visits, emails, offerings and friendship. Thank you for taking the time to read this short newsletter.
We told you in our last letter about our 3 days of parties with the Colorado team in early July. The same church sent a work crew the following week. They worked on the foundation of the school in El Pino. Now the walls are up to the bond beam, and very soon the roof will be on. Praise the Lord! Another good news, we received over $5000 in donations toward the project, thus meeting the matching fund challenge! Thank you for praying and giving.
Lots of children were blessed in the month of July by the teams. We ministered in El Pino and Barranca to a large group of kids. Many had never heard the story of Jonah. I was saddened to think how a whole generation is growing up with no Bible knowledge. Do your best to teach your children, grandchildren and those around you! The kids liked the stories and especially making tie-dye shirts.
The team from the Spanish church in Lilburn, GA was a huge blessing! They represented the US, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama and Peru! We had a three day VBS in Soto, with about 200 kids and adults by the third day. What a joy to see hands raised and heads bowed in prayer to accept the Lord! They also ministered in Haitian churches in Ponton and Constanza, plus they painted the outside of the church at Rose of Sharon! What a generous and hard-working team! They bought chairs for the Constanza and Ponton schools, and gave out backpacks to some very grateful children. It was such a joy to minister with them.
Remember your tax-deductible donations can be sent using your bank information or credit card here on our give page. For those who like to write a check, please make it out to TeachFeedLove and send it to TMCI, PO BOX 1761, Columbia, SC 29202. I also receive payments through Zelle at email@example.com. I have noticed that some people signed up to be sponsors, but haven’t started sending their donations in yet. Please help us during the summer months so that we can pay the teachers. They depend on their small stipend. In July we were only able to pay 80%.
I hope you enjoy the photos! Thank you again for your sacrifice, your love and generosity and your prayers. God bless you and yours.
