Upstairs in the education building will be different stations for children and families to make crafts. This will be a wonderful night with our church family as we prepare ourselves for the coming of Christ the King, born in a manger.

Dear Partners in Mission, This has been a busy time for the PCOSS/S education community. As the social and economic climates continually fluctuate, we are called upon to make many adjustments and rethink strategies. The pressure this places upon our learners, teachers, administrators and parents is not unnoticed. We thank you for your continued perseverance. As we look at the future educational needs in country and the diaspora, our focus is shifting from construction towards what happens inside the school’s “walls.” Thus, we will continue to engage in the training of the Education Board, Parents Council and School Management Committee members as well as head teachers and their deputies. Our goal is to increase their capacity so that they will be able to support their schools financially, morally, and administratively. An instrumental part of many trainings for these groups and our classroom teachers has been and will continue to be trauma healing, especially as it relates to working with traumatized children and communities. We will also seek to provide great-er inputs to address the critical shortage of basic teaching and learning aids, sanitation, and classroom furniture. We still call upon parents to contribute to their children’s school success by paying the small school fees so that teachers may receive incentives and purchase basic supplies like chalk, pens and exercise books. Thanks to our dedicated school communities as we continue to do our best. To our partners, your support is a great blessing. "One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world." -Malala Yousafzi You can download the full Newsletter from Presbyterian Church of South Sudan/Sudan. Prayer cards for Leisa Wagstaff, our mission co-worker with the people of South Sudan, are available in the information racks in the church foyer and to the right of the door exiting the Education Building. Please pick one up for your home bulletin board to remind you to keep her and the people she works with in your prayers.
