We want to let you in on a new ministry that we are in the process of launching. We are starting a Scholarship Program for a few graduates from Instituto El Rey. We can help students get a university degree, while providing them with work and an opportunity to be discipled.
Many of you know that when we, Jason & Sarah Furrow, moved to Honduras in 2006, we dedicated two years to the incredible Christian high school, Instituto El Rey. Several of our students there really stood out to us for their great work ethic and strong faith. We really want to see these young people succeed, which is the first part of the equation.
The second part, is that every week we run English, computer, and music classes, the Library Program, and the Youth Group, and we need more helpers. We need quality part-time workers who will help us make these ministries happen and we think these scholarship students will be the perfect fit.
We see this Scholarship Program as a way to invest in the lives of these young people, both academically and spiritually, and it brings workers and good influences to our kids. We're so excited to get started! The first three students that will be a part of this program are already living in our Volunteer House. If you've visited us in the past few months you may have met José Rito, Miryan, or Katy. They have started working for us and are in the process of applying for university and taking admission tests. Stay tuned for more updates!
