New Life Christian School in Orange Walk, was, just a few years ago, a school without financial and community support.  Ruth saw potential where few others did.  She trusted in God's faithfulness to provide and lead her as she led "a school without hope".  Recently, to her surprise, Orange Town Council awarded Ruth as "Outstanding School Leader" who has led a school "without hope" to become a light in the community - a school sought by the Orange Walk community, and praised by the Ministry of Education.

Ruth is an enthusiastic, dedicated, and motivated woman of God. She came to New Life-Orange Walk five years ago with the mission of transforming a dark building into a school. “We had no chalkboards, no desks, no materials, and 76 students enrolled for our first year!” Ruth recalls, “It has been such a humbling experience seeing what God does and who He has used.” This school has been visited by HANDS teams for short term mission projects. Ruth is extremely grateful for the work they have done and the encouragement they have shared. She says, “Each one has blessed my heart in such an amazing way.”

Ruth most enjoyed a new coat of paint on the outside of the school building that a group of HANDS team members did. Suddenly, with a new colour, the school no longer looks dark, but portrays the warm and welcoming atmosphere that the students and teachers enjoy on the inside. And people in the community noticed too! Many locals have stopped by to ask what this well-known building is now used for because it looks so much better now than it ever did before. Ruth loves these conversations and is excited to share with everyone about her love for teaching and her dreams for the school. She is quick to give all the glory to God and is excited as many ask her to share the Gospel with them.

It’s been only five years since the school started and the enrolment has increased rapidly. Only about 10% of these students are Christian, but Ruth ensures that they are all loved and taught in such a way that the gospel is incorporated into their studies. Ruth is amazed at how God is using her dreams of building a school to do more than what she originally imagined; he is using New Life Christian School to restore hope to this Belizean community.

Continue with us in pray for Ruth and her community, as well as the many other communities who need transformed leaders.

Dear Edudeo Ministries.

Greetings to you from Unbound Children Ministries in India.

First of all, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sister Sujatha Kolli. I am living in Andhra Pradesh, South India. I am running an orphanage named Unbound children Ministries. It is a Non-Profit Christian Organization, established in 2006 in India. In 2009 Unbound children ministries was registered under the Societies Registration Act with the Government of India. Our Registered Number is 194/2009.

At present we are feeding and caring 30 orphan children in our home. Due to lack of local support and donor supports we are facing great hardships and these children are provided with shelter, food, clothing and a basic education at a local school. Medical attention is given as and when required. The happy atmosphere and the warm appreciation of the children for the little they do have cannot hide the great need there is for improvement. So as such we approach for furtherance and of help and support which will uplift us and make the children more feel and comfort. Please do have a soft corner in your heart to help the least of these as we save these children to win them for Christ. We are not a part of any mission, organization and consequently are not funded. If you are willing to sponsor one child or little donate us, we would be very thankful to you. We will pray for you, your work and family. All our orphan children and our staff join us in sending you love, greetings and look forward to receive your love and affection.

Thanking You.

Your Sister in Christ.

Sujatha Kolli.

Founder & President.
