Sierra Leone Scholarships

Sierra Leone students

What is the value of your education?  Most of us have many skills that we learned in school like reading, writing, and critical thinking that make us productive members to society.  There are children who would love to have the educational opportunity we have in the U.S.  Sierra Leone is located on the West coast of Africa and is one of the poorest countries in the world.  It is a privilege to receive an education due to the lack of government funding and available qualified teachers.  For the past several years, Bethel has been partnering with Grace Evangelical Ministries to spread the gospel in the rural areas of Freetown.  As part of this outreach, we have been providing scholarships for children to go to school. Scholarships are $240 for a student which covers school fees, uniforms, shoes, textbooks, backpack, exams and other fees.  Would you please consider partnering with us to send 70 students to school this year.  Stop by the display in the foyer to pick up a picture of the child you want to sponsor or email Jeff Bice (jeff@bethelbible.com)
