For almost 15 years, the children at Quinta Linia have been attending the Suzanna Wesley School to learn about the world and God. Originally, the school was founded because the schooling in the area was so inadequate, and because the children had begun to ask questions about their parents’ new faith. Even today, the other schools in the area do not have electricity, running water or even books.
The first facility was a three room building with an out-house. Through the years, with help from other missionaries and friends in the United States, we have built the nicest facility in the district — complete with fans and bathrooms with running water.
Today the school has 134 students in kindergarten through 6th grade, three teachers, one teaches aid and a chaplain. Our chaplain is a local pastor who teaches the children Bible class once a week. All the teachers have or are receiving their education through scholarships provided by our friends at home in the United States.
We are thankful to all the people who have helped with the school over the years. Supporting and praying for a group of people who you have never and/or may never meet is a true testament of your faith.
