New Van for Our Kiddos!
“The vehicle we use to transport kids to and from the Point of Hope is simply worn out. We’ve poured money into keeping it running. It is time for a new vehicle to gets our kids safely to school.”
Years of daily travel has caused Benny the Bus to become unreliable and unsafe. Our dear friend Benny has safely transported children to the Point of Hope loyally for many years. But, it’s time for a bus and a new face. Bradley Bus!
The good news is that you can help provide a new bus for the children!
Will you please give a gift by midnight, September 30 to help purchase a new bus that will safely and reliably get kids to the Point of Hope each school day.
Your gift will help a child attend the Point of Hope safely each day through the purchase of a new bus.
“I will never forget the first time I walked the route our preschoolers walk to school. It was dangerous and I couldn’t imagine having my or any child walk this route regularly! Danger is everywhere and many kids live up to one mile away!” – Tim Oloffson, ACF Executive Director
Children as young as 3 years old attend the preschool classes each morning. The road they walk on is a tremendously busy road and cars travel at a high speed.
We were told a story by a staff member that scared us to death. The staff member had a young man stop by the Point of Hope saying that he had just missed hitting a young child walking to our school.
He shared that he had no idea how his car missed the child. It was like the car magically went through the child. He said it was obvious that God had protected this child from harm.
Thankfully, the majority of time these children are picked up by our bus driver. However, there are times where the van has become unavailable due to mechanical issues.
Unfortunately, this is happening more and more! A new bus will cost $52,000 and is needed to be purchased before the school year starts in September.
You can see why it’s important to ACT NOW! The last thing you or I want is a young child injured or possibly killed by simply having to walk to school.
But your gift will provide safe travel to the Point of Hope while also supporting all the work of Another Child. In addition, you’ll be supporting all of the Christian discipleship and educational resources being poured into these children.
So please, give your gift as quickly as you can! Not only will you be helping a child get to school safely each day, but you’ll be part of a group of generous donors helping bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to kids.
And you will help ACF be in the best financial position possible as we start the 2021/22 school year.
But, it all starts with a gift to help a child confidently board a bus that will safely get them to school.
I know you care about these kids God has called us to serve. I am so thankful to be able to share this need with you.
This school year there are lots of children in Romania needing your help. Please give a special gift to help one child get safely to and from school each day. You’ll be glad you did!
