I am coming to all of you, friends, families, and people I have never even met to ask you to take some time and look at two very important things we have going on for the school right now.
Please take a moment to read this and SHARE it with your people who might be interested in participating.
Nicaragua Christian School exists to provide the opportunity for the poorest in the communities of Leon, Nicaragua, to receive a Christian Education. It is vitally important to the employees and supporters of NCS that these students learn how to read and write in a God-centered environment. The teachers and staff are constantly pursuing new and improved learning techniques and strategies, and they do the best they can to implement these in the classroom. The goal of NCS is to educate and to provide a support system for its students and their families. When students leave NCS, it is hopeful that they will carry their knowledge and love for Christ into their homes and their communities. Due to the monetary support and prayer for these specific things, the Nicaragua Christian School is thriving.
This year we are starting a new tradition. We have been brainstorming about how we could raise money for the school and we feel like this is a great opportunity for us to do so. Leon, Nicaragua has been such a blessing on so many lives and we want to keep giving back to the God's precious children in Nicaragua. On MONDAY, OCTOBER 3, 2011 we are our having our first Annual Golf tournament for Nicaragua Christian School at the Jackson Country Club. Format: Texas Scramble. We have openings for Gold, Silver and Bronze sponsorships, team sponsorships, and hole sponsorships. If you are interested in sponsoring teams but are not able to play we can find someone to fill your spot! Prizes will be included in goodie bags... Winning teams, closest to the pin, longest drive, and putting contest awards following the tournament. Take some time to get to know us and learn more about the school at Nicaraguachristian.org.. we would love for you to be a part of our mission, starting with playing in our first Golf Tournament!!!
Also, with Christmas around the corner we are hoping to give each child at Nicaragua Christian School a Christmas gift this year and we need your help.
Three easy steps:
1.Fill a shoebox with items from the list below.
2. Wrap the box and lid separately in holiday wrapping paper.
3. Indicate whether the gift is for a boy or girl and place $5.00 on top of the box to cover the cost of shipping.
Each box should contain: School supplies (pencils, pens, crayons, paper, pencil sharpener) Personal items (toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shampoo, soap, washcloth) Clothing (socks, underwear, shorts, t-shirt, sandals, ball cap, sunglasses) Toys (yo-yos, small cars, dolls, stickers, jump rope, bubbles, harmonicas) Filler (candy, mints, gum. No chocolate or other candy that might melt).
All boxes need to be at Campbell Street Church of Christ no later than SEPTEMBER 19th. For more information, contact Christy Lovelace at 731-427-9511.
Please consider being a part of the work being done in Nicaragua. Lives are being changed and they are the precious children of God. Help put a smile on these faces!
Gracias y Dios te bendiga!
