Always learning. Always growing.

Blog Archives:

Our most recent post highlighted several elements that confirmed we are on the right track at EduDeo Ministries.  However, there is still much growth required in our organization.  We strive to use the gifts God has entrusted to us to the very best of our abilities.  Following, in point form, are several key areas of growth for our organization: 

- Continue to grow in our cultural awareness and intelligence (CQ)

- Ensure the local church has a close connection to the schools we support

- Develop effective measurement tools, recognizing, however, it is difficult to quantitatively measure development (the movement of people).

- Take more time for active listening with our partners – particularly to understand the assets of the partners/communities we serve.

- Learn to balance healthy development with donor needs/reporting.

- Continue to challenge HANDS teams to be culturally appropriate, to understand the larger work and to continue supporting in a meaningful way after the trip.

- Learn more about PLA (Participatory Learning and Action) and its tools.

- Pray for our partners more often: this includes the students, teachers, principals, and other leaders.

- Repent more often for our times of selfishness and God-complexes. 

We invite you into this development process with us.  We value your input, support and prayers as, together, we seek to advance Christ-centred education for children in developing countries.

That's an excellent list. So beautiful to see that humility is a main character within the whole of it. We'll keep praying for EduDeo as you keep on in the journey.
