The Covenant HANDS team is preparing to travel to Belize next week from February 25 to March 8, 2019. Team participants are: Al & Geraldine Attema, Wally Mulder, Cynthia Krikke, Bernie Olydam, Dawn Czuroski, Anne Veldhuizen, Willie Olydam, Murray & Helen Lobert, Erik Veldhuizen and Justine Lobert. They are going to help work on the Unity Presbyterian School. Their work is finishing six washrooms (3 for boys and 3 for girls). Presently the school has one bathroom for 212 students. This is the sixth trip Covenant has sent a HANDS team on, and the team has been fundraising for the last two years.
HANDS stands for Helping Another Nation Develop Schools and it is through an organization called Edu Deo. Edu Deo's goal is to bring Christian education to developing countries and through that, the hope is to bring transformation. Their goal is the make Christian education accessible, provide training to the teachers, and construct new classrooms. We work alongside local builders, and people from the community creating a strong bond with brothers and sisters in Christ in other countries. The HANDS team would like to thank everyone for their continued support through prayer and financial giving. Please continue to pray for our team.
