Mrs. Rohwers 4th grade classrooms decided to partner with HealthEd Connect on a character development project. One of the classes is shown in the photo holding the posters they made for the children of the schools in Kasompe (near Chingola) and Chipulukusu (near Ndola) Zambia, Africa demonstrating in pictures and words the characters of 'Respect' and 'Responsibility'.

The countdown to departure is on for a team of 11 to depart for Zambia on January 3. One will come from Texas, one Milwaukee, one Denver and the rest from Kansas City. We'll hook up at Dulles airport and proceed from there. Supplies are being gathered, lessons planned, passports located, and suitcases dusted off. The excitement builds! So many plans for this trip including the introduction of a bicycle generator income generating project (for cell phones), and training classes for Child Support Specialists to work with the grieving children. We're also hoping to lay the cornerstone for the long-awaited new classrooms in Chipulukusu, Zambia. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!

Today is Human Rights Day. In honor of HealthEd Connect’s boss, Miriam, her family, and all orphans/vulnerable children—may our Heavenly Father be flooded with prayers for their welfare. May we as a board reach out to share their stories and garner the financial support needed to empower their lives and communities.
Prayers for you and your own this Christmas season,
HealthEd Connect Board member
(Greetings sent from Brenda to other HealthEd Connect Board members today. The message was so appropriate we wanted to share it with our many HealthEd Connect friends and supporters)
