    Belize Evangelical Mennonite Church Scholarship Fund

    Why do over 25% of children in Belize stop going to school by age 12? Because secondary school isn’t free. That’s why Miriam Eberly, who formerly served with EMM in Belize, started a scholarship fund to help students get the education they need to achieve their dreams.

    Miriam’s scholarship fund, called the Belize Evangelical Mennonite Church Scholarship Fund, provides $200 to $250 scholarships (the equivalent of 400 to 500 Belize dollars) to secondary students who attend Mennonite churches. The cost of secondary school in Belize varies widely, from around $300 per year to $3,000 (USD). When evaluating applications for the scholarship, Miriam takes financial need, Mennonite church attendance and participation, leadership potential, and educational excellence into account.

    Each student sends a letter when they apply for the scholarship. Miriam has received letters from Deaf students, students whose homes don’t have electricity, and students who hope to become doctors to serve the Belizean people one day. “My goals are to graduate and then be able to go to Bible college. One day I also hope to become a missionary in India,” wrote one student named Sally Padilla.

    After four years of running the scholarship fund almost entirely from her own savings, Miriam is beginning to hear from scholarship recipients who went on to pursue their goals. One female student was accepted to the University of Belize to study math, physics, and architecture. Another student is studying at a Bible school in Guatemala.

    For Miriam, her scholarship fund is a way to invest in the future of a country she loves. Would you like to join her?

    Child abuse prevention in Chile

    The beauty of the islands lying off the coast of southern Chile is tainted by darkness. Government studies indicate that as many as eight out of 10 children there are being sexually abused. Throughout Chile, EMM workers have joined with others to help prevent the abuse.

    For example, Caminando en Victoria (Walking in Victory) is an organization that holds many workshops to educate adults and children about sexual abuse prevention. Another example is a ministry center for children living in La Vega, a section of Tenglo Island. The center, called Siloe’, is a safe place where children can relax, play, learn, experience healthy ways of relating, and receive affirmation, encouragement, and love from Christian believers. Parents and adult relatives of the children are mostly absent, living below poverty level, and lacking in education and resources. Funds are needed to purchase supplies for workshops, sporting equipment, games, books, art supplies, music-related items, firewood, gas for cooking, and snacks for the children.

    $20 will provide art supplies for the children
    $50 provides swimming classes

    Christian after-school program in Cambodia

    In rural Cambodia, an after-school children’s program is changing lives. Children ages seven to 14 can take part in a program that provides math tutoring, Khmer language skills (many enter the program not even knowing the basic alphabet), and Scriptural education.

    Children are introduced to the Bible — learning about Adam to Jesus in one year! Christian character values such as honesty, respect for others, and honoring one’s parents are emphasized.

    The “character teachers” are all committed local Khmer Christians who love kids. Games, skits, and play times provide fun for the children. The program is unapologetically Christian; parents know and understand their children will be learning about Jesus, singing Christian songs, and learning from God’s Scriptures. Parents or caretakers attend a parenting session.

    Every child in the program is required to attend the local schools: the program provides each with a school uniform, a book bag, school supplies, and a set of play clothes. A local compound in the village is rented for a few hours a day. Used motorcycles must be purchased so teachers can travel between villages.

    The program has just been expanded into two new villages, and parents are very eager to get their children involved. 120 new children have been signed up — more than expected!

    $18 provides one child with a school uniform, book bag, and notebooks
    $82 covers the costs of the character teachers and tutoring

    Church leadership training in Vietnam

    “Leadership development and theological training for pastors continue to be pressing needs of the Vietnamese church. While some Bible schools were legally recognized since 2004, there is still a huge shortage of adequately trained leaders, pastors and teachers. There is a lot of catching up to do as a result of 30 years of near total restrictions on training. Some of those restrictions continue to this day,” says Gerry Keener, an EMM non-resident missionary who teaches in a ministry training institute started by the Vietnam Mennonite Church. “The Mennonite training institute in Vietnam provides a framework in which we can train Mennonite leaders as well as share Anabaptist-oriented curricular materials with other denominations.”

    The Vietnamese believers are energetic and dedicated to the Lord and His kingdom. Biblical and theological training are vital to provide enough leaders and teachers for the growing evangelical community and to stabilize the church.

    Immigrant ministry in Halle, Germany

    “The flow of refugees into Germany, already very high, is expected to increase in a way we’ve never seen before,” said an EMM worker in Halle, Germany. At Begegnungraum der Kulturen (The Meeting Place of Cultures) – an immigrant ministry through local church Soli Deo in Halle – refugees receive aid in their hour of need. Many arrive traumatized and fearful. But everyone who comes to the immigrant center is treated with dignity and respect, welcomed despite being strangers and foreigners in a new country.

    Europe is seeing an influx of refugees from politically destabilized regions in North Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. Since 2010, immigration has doubled in parts of Europe. Refugees may be Muslims, and they may be persecuted Christians. Marah is a single mother struggling to raise two children on her own. She arrived in Halle, Germany, from North Africa, with a price on her head for dishonoring her family. Fadiyah, abandoned by her husband, is from Sao Tome. Illness has added to the burden of taking care of her three teenage sons.

    At Begegnungraum der Kulturen, practical help is offered – from setting up a household in Germany to applying for government paperwork. German language courses, music lessons, and a safe place to socialize and make friends help with the immigrants’ transition to a new country. “Germany is being stretched almost beyond its limits,” said the EMM worker in Halle. “While Germany has welcomed more refugees per capita than any country in Europe, there has been a minority speaking out against the refugees who are arriving. Now is the time for the evangelical church to join together and welcome the tide of refugees in the name of Jesus.”

    In Guinea-Bissau, where the annual per capita income is only $1,090, mothers have few educational options for their children.

    EMM has partnered with local people in the villages of Catel, Guinea-Bissau, to start a preschool where children can get a good start on reading, writing, and arithmetic. But most importantly, the children learn that Jesus loves them and has good plans for their lives.

    Village parents pay $10 per school year in tuition (a significant expense for them), but this is not enough to cover all costs. The preschool has a current financial need of $2,000.

    Charitable gifts received will be used to outfit school rooms, make uniforms, purchase school supplies, and supplement the salaries of the the preschool teachers.

    PROMESA, a Mennonite school in Peru

    Quechua children in Peru face discrimination in local schools due to their ethnicity and their evangelical faith. The Peruvian Mennonite Church decided to establish an alternative to the local school system by founding PROMESA, which offers an academically advanced, Christian education that also frees children from experiencing discrimination at school.

    Two reasons to give to PROMESA:

    New building

    The school started in 2005 with 11 students; today, nearly 300 children, both Quechua and non-Quechua, are enrolled. Many children were being turned away due to lack of space and insufficient facilities, so the church purchased land in the mountains outside Cusco to construct a new school building. Volunteers from Engineering Ministries International (EMI) have created a three-phase construction plan. Walk through the planned campus here.

    Just over $1 million is needed for site preparation and phase one of building classrooms. With our support, many more Peruvian students can have access to a safe, high-quality, Christian education. Read stories from the Peru Trek for PROMESA which helped raise money for the school. Learn more about the trek.

    Scholarships

    You can help a bright child with insufficient resources get a high-quality Christian education! It takes $1000 to sponsor one student for an entire school year, but any amount helps.

    In this short video, learn about PROMESA through the story of 15-year-old Jhon Erik — and find out ways to help this Christian school achieve its future goals.

    $50 helps PROMESA expand and reach more children
    $200 moves PROMESA closer to a larger facility
    $2,000 is a generous gift promoting education!

    PROSIM in Peru

    Children living in the remote villages of the Andean mountains of Peru face a number of health challenges, including malnutrition, parasites, and anemia. Fortunately, these conditions are treatable and preventable with education and assistance.

    Born and raised in Peru, Gloria Mamani Nina is a health promoter who travels six hours by bus to reach the village of San Juan de Cotabambas. She provides the families there with the information and tools they need for better health. Gloria presents lessons on everything from a balanced diet to good dental care to the importance of hygiene.

    Gloria works as a health promoter with PROSIM, a health care cooperative started by EMM and the Peruvian Mennonite Church. Each local church — many in outlying villages and communities — has a health promoter or representative. Every month, the health promoters gather to meet with PROSIM for training, a time of prayer and worship, and a short devotional. Some of the trainings have included CPR training, anemia, medications and how to use them, and dehydration. The health promoters go back and share this vital information with their own communities or an outlying village. In the process they are seeing lives transformed, physically and spiritually! Check out PROSIM’s work.
