Thank you.

You are so important to the children who benefit from your generous support. Thank You so much. Together with us, you have made great things happen this year. You have fed, given clean water, educated, kept healthy, built great things and brought children to Christ. What a great and huge thing we have done together, thank you.

We are proud of you and that we do not change our mandate. Right now, the children helped through you have gained a better life and are much better off due to you!
Thanks to you they are on the right path for a better future.

In the New Year, we will continue to do the work much the same way to get to the same goal of creating Godly men and women.

Thank you!


Here are a few examples of what is on our hearts in the New Year and where your blessings would go.

• Continue to ensure our children receive a better education through:
• Teacher training 
• Continue the Lunch program “lunch buddy” (over 150 000 lunches has been funded because of our Lunch Buddy program)
• Drill more water wells.
• Provide more training and services to families caring for children with disabilities
• Conduct more Bible classes for adults, children, and youth
• Continue to develop a legacy giving fund.
• Start a daughter entity “Tent Mission”.

This year we will start a new entity called “Tent Mission” we have heard that some of you and some potential donors desire to give to a more evangelization specific bible true partner. That partner will be “Tent Mission” and will be under the Star of Hope umbrella.
Inversely those who want to give to different development and classic education can continue with Star of Hope.

Blessings and hope to you and yours for a wonderful New Year.

Thank you and Blessing of peace for you and yours. As we look to helping the children and youth in out 15 countries we give a gentle reminder to remember yours and those in your circles, the good book says, "for even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, They run and don't get tired, they walk and don't lag behind."

So why not be one who gently helps the children and youth.

All of us at Star of Hope say "Thank you for all you have done"

 

DID YOU KNOW

12% OF ALL YEAR-END GIVING HAPPENS IN THE LAST THREE DAYS OF THE YEAR.

Together this year, we experienced the joy and accomplishment of changing children’s lives and spreading the Gospel.

This year our year-end giving will be used primarily to shore up our budget where it is most needed, for a new much-needed water well in Rigaud, Haiti, and for supporting our new Awana International project. Your gift is a hand up and has the potential to make thousands of boys and girls happy. To give them joy by showing them love can create a positive change in the children and ultimately a whole community. It will, I bet, make you feel warm and fuzzy inside too.

I had the opportunity last month to visit our projects in Haiti where I looked at 2 new water wells we drilled in Marigot. They are good wells and will provide water long into the future and help many thousands of people. Praise God! However, one project I visited in Rigaud is in desperate need for clean water. Their two wells have gone dry. This is a great tragedy. First, the school water station went dry, and then the reverse osmosis and selling point station. The 2 dry holes make it a dreary situation. We need to drill again so the children and leaders do not have to use dirty water. One drilled well costs about $7,000 dollars.

While in Haiti I also followed up on our fantastic new partnership with Awana International. We are presenting the Gospel in a structured format to the youngest ages (6-8) this year and we will continue next year as well. Our goal is to add the next age group, but without support, this will be difficult. To continue to grow this project we need materials; we only have to pay the copy costs. This is a great program and is simply Biblical missions done right.

In Romania, our prayers are being answered. After 15 years of work, a dream came true. In Dorohoi, the number of children with disabilities that need assistance increased last period and the old facilities weren’t big enough. On November 3rd over 28 kids with disabilities and their families received a new center. At our inauguration many people came together to celebrate; Star of Hope representatives, members of community, kids, and parents.

“The Star of Hope Romania team, including the team in Dorohoi, didn’t give up in face of obstacles, even if there were times when there seemed to be no solutions. We are not used to giving up. I am very proud of you"-Lennart Eriksson

So close to the USA

What can I do you might say, Together you and the “Skip it to Give it” campaign can literally change the lives of people in Haiti, just by applying a few simple steps to your and your family's everyday living can bring about a huge change. Imagine thinking about others before buying that Starbucks coffee, or that half dozen Dunkin Donuts, a movie night or a dinner out... and taking those few dollars and giving them to help feed the hungry in Haiti?

A movement can begin with one person sharing about this campaign while catalyzing others to see the need before they spend the green. Being a living example of “Skip it to Give it” to others honors God and makes your light shine a little brighter in a dark world here and there.

On our "skip it to give it page" is everything you need to know about the “Skip it to Give it” campaign, our friend Pastor Jonathan also explains all in a short video and there is the sign-up!

Sara Williams, the project manager is also here to help answer your questions or to give you guidance along the way. If you have any questions, contact her at 620-938-4525.

Star of Hope USA and our founding organization “Tent Mission” is happy to report in on our new partnership with Awana has been an overwhelming success for all involved.

AWANA PIX 5.jpg

Awana is relentlessly committed to providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship opportunities for children ages 2-18. As the global leader in child and youth discipleship, Awana gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, no matter their background. Methods are always adapting to meet the unique needs of each community. We hope in the near future we can be teaching this to the 20,000 plus children we support in 14 countries together with our founding organization Tent mission.

We are in the middle of a test project where Pastor Reginald Celestin in Haiti, who is the contact person and liaison between Awana International and Star of Hope Haiti. He writes, “Due to the knowledge, diligence, and support of our trainers, trainees and project areas of service, we will service approximately 3,340 children this school year with the emphasis being put mostly on the 730 kindergarten children…” Wow, what a great mission! A mission that is Bible-based, A Mission we and you can stand behind!


I know your heart is aligned with ours when it comes to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, I know you want to do something fantastic. We have the work in place and the only things we need now is prayer and money to print the Awana books and other materials. We want to take Awana to all our children and more!
AWANA PIX 2.jpgHere is Pastor Reggie’d report.
Report Star of Hope is an educational organization that focuses on supporting and providing pre-and primary to secondary schools in several poor villages of Haiti. Due to the nation’s lack of schooling and high poverty levels, proper education seems like only a dream for many children in Haiti. Often times, if they are able to attend and to afford school, many families may go a day without pay. It is the hope of our organization that we can eliminate these conditions and develop and sustain positive educational environments for our youth.

I began working with Star of Hope Haiti Foundation in January of 2018 as the consulting pastor. My responsibilities include overseeing the implementation of Christian education in schools and reinforcing the spiritual growth of churches. This new position with Star of Hope has allowed me to orchestrate a conference for teachers near and far that are a part of our selected network of projects. The conference took place at the Star of Hope Haiti Foundation office in Marin, Haiti on September4-6, 2018 from 9:00 am - 4:30 pm.

The goal of this AWANA conference was to train teachers to train children in a spiritual manner by applying Christian instruction in school systems. “AWANA” is a worldwide nonprofit ministry focused on providing Bible-based evangelism and discipleship solutions for ages 2-18. As the global leader in child and youth discipleship, AWANA gives children the opportunity to know, love and serve Jesus, no matter their background.”

AWANA PIX # 7.jpgOur seven project areas include Jeanton, Boyer, Rigaud, Bois Negresse, Dano, Marigot, and Hess, and we also invited the areas of Bouvier, Carrefour, and Cavaillon to the conference. With the exception of Jeanton and Dano that brought four representatives each, each project area came with three representatives, the school principal, head of the kindergarten teacher and the Sunday school director from each church. The two AWANA trainers, Baby Nicolas, and Ruth Petit Frère provided our attendees with tremendous work. They are very good at working with children and training adults to work with them as well.
AWANA PIX # 11.jpgEach day provided our participants with a fun, enjoyable and meaningful experience. We began with prayer and praise and worship as a group because as a Christian organization, this is how we will begin to teach the children that we serve. Afterward, our attendees were encouraged to act like children for two days in order to learn, to grow and to experience The AWANA program fully. We received three meals every day during conference times. Myrtha Dor and her kitchen team did a phenomenal job cooking and making everybody feel at home.

On the third day, each participant received the opportunity to practice their knowledge on a group of 20 deserving children. These children, along with three advisors traveled by bus from Love Community Home; an orphanage in Carrefour, Haiti, in order to join and to work with us as we learned about the program. At the orphanage; run by Guy and Merline Vincent, they also head a school that provides education for local children who cannot afford to school elsewhere.
AWANA # 10.jpgWhen the children arrived, they were given lunch and given the opportunity to play in the courtyard. They were so happy. Each child was then put into groups by age and got to go through to learn AWANA training. Afterward, the trainees recognized the students for their great efforts and participation. All 20 children received from Star of Hope a school bag and school supplies for the upcoming school year. Every trainee also received a certificate of completion for their hard work and participation in the process.
AWANA PIX.jpgDue to the knowledge, diligence, and support of our trainers, trainees and project areas of service, we will service approximately 3,340 children this school year with the emphasis being put mostly on the 730 kindergarten children. It was an honor to coordinate and attend this event.

Regular follow-ups will be made throughout the school year in order to monitor the effect of the AWANA materials and also a WhatsApp group has been created with all the participants from the different projects to share experiences and benefits of the AWANA tools. Jeanton has been chosen as the pilot project and the AWANA materials will be tested in both the school and the church and we will start with The AWANA Children club that will meet every Saturday morning from 9:00 AM to 12:00 P.m.
AWANA # 8.jpgWe did it! Thanks to your generous support, all seven projects will start the Christian education program at the earliest age of the children this year. Your gift provides critical support for our organization to apply Proverbs 22:6 “Train up (Catechize) a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

“Boys and girls are future community leaders, entrepreneurs, educators and so much more. Research has shown that investing in children has ripple effects through a community, so if you want to change a country, you start with the children.

On behalf of all of us at Star of Hope Haiti, all projects representatives and all the Children, we thank you again for supporting the AWANA Seminar.

Sincerely, Reginald Celestin
Consulting Pastor for Star of Hope 

Pastor Reginald states we are reaching many more kids than we thought, we want to reach even more but we need your help to bring the gospel to the children!
