School Anniversary celebration
It was a great weekend of celebration. Children of Hope School is 20 years old! Recently we had several events to commemorate this anniversary. On Saturday morning, June 16 we had a carnival for the CSC children and the kids of our workers in the playground area of the Shelter. It was a time of laughter, fun, eating and playing. The various booths were manned by CHS faculty and some of our high schoolers. That night there was a banquet at the Grand Convention Center. Friends, former teachers and administrators and current staff and faculty were in attendance to see videos, enjoy cultural dances by the children, eat and celebrate 20 years of God's goodness at CHS. The night featured several testimonies from former and current students and faculty using the theme, "Stories of Hope." On Sunday morning a worship service was held at the school. We praised God for who He is and what He has done at CHS. Our kids were in the worship team and gave testimonies. Rev. Lowell Tallo gave an inspiring message and 20 of our children were dedicated in an emotional service after the main worship time.
Children of Hope School has truly been a blessing to many children over the years, as well as those wh0 have had the privilege to teach there. It was fun to hear all the stories of how God has used the school to bless people and prepare our kids for whatever will come next in their lives after CSC.
