August 2017 Prayer Requests
The summer holidays are past and the new school year is full steam ahead. All children and teachers are refreshed after the break and are ready to learn and to teach to God’s glory.
Sunrise Christian School has much to be thankful for.
–This month we have welcomed 2 new pupils, who are settling in nicely.
-We have new volunteers who are helping out with Art lessons (very grateful to our talented parents who are sacrificing their time)
-Grateful for the fundraising efforts of parents and their relatives. The table top sale organised by parents in August has raised £220.70! We would like to thank all who donated any items and personal time. Big thanks to Janneke’s dad, Jan, who established another personal record while cycling 170 km in one day, on his sponsored cycle for Sunrise!
-Special thanks to the Lord for the help which came from other organisations: Boyd Tunnock of Thomas Tunnock LTD, who kindly responded to our letter earlier in the summer and donated a £100.00 cheque (this will to go to parents and friend’s association funds). We were also delighted to hear back just last week from The Barrack Charitable Trust who responded to our small grant application and sent a cheque for £480.00 to be used towards the purchase of additional tablets for the children’s use.
The Lord has been gracious to our cause!
Please remember these requests in your Prayers:
–Inverness as they seek to establish a Christian School
-A suitable building to come up to become permanent premises for our school where children and teachers may have ample space to work and play and grow as a school.
-More people to come to an increasing realisation of importance of Christian Education in our day.
-For the children and teachers alike, for the planting and nurturing of faith in The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
