Computers for A School in Ghana

With the school year done or nearly done for most students, we thought we'd shine the spotlight on a very special teacher in a village school in Bosovilla, Ghana - Africa. Christie, was a college student who attended Extra Mile's Bible study program in Acra who, upon graduating college, got posted to a village in a remote area of Ghana. The school she was assigned to serves over 600 students that come from 4 villages, but teachers are scarce and supplies are even scarcer.

5 Minute Childrens Bible Lessons

Finding the time in our busy schedules to provide our children with the spiritual input they need to grow in faith can be a challenge. The demands of work, school, sports or other activities can leave us with very little time to devote to this very important task.  That being said, you don’t need to spend hours a day to “Train up a child in the way that they should go.” In fact, as parents of preschoolers, you know that short, children’s Bible lessons and daily input, which can be fit in during mealtimes, before bed or during short breaks in the day, can be much more effective.

Happy Mother's Day to Women Making a Difference!

Happy Mother’s Day for those celebrating today, and for those celebrating this weekend. And we want to give a big SHOUT OUT to some of those women who are operating programs that benefit needy children, who run schools and educational programs, or oversee orphanages. These amazing women are spreading their motherly love around to tens of thousands of children through their efforts and providing these little ones with a love and care that only someone with a mother’s heart can give.  Keep up the good work! You’re an example to us all!
