YOU DID IT!! "sCARves for a Cause" a Huge Success...
Thanks to your compassionate hearts and generous giving, we are pleased to announce that Redeemer Christian School has a reliable Mitsubishi wagon to aid in running the school and serving the children better.
No more lugging everything from textbooks, to computers, to groceries for daily meals, to Christmas gift purchases on unreliable public transportation. If one of the children needs medical attention - we can attend to that much more easily. Time that was wasted in inefficient methods of transporting will now be used in a more efficient manner and enable our Director to spend more time working at the school and less time in transit for everyday things like groceries for the children's meals.
The van's impact will be to allow the director to be much more effective in his role in overseeing everything from lesson planning to plans for school growth.
Stay tuned for more pictures of the van in use at the school....thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
sCARves for a cause!
Right now, we have great need for a car for our school. Can you imagine running a Christian school in the Middle East (where Christians are targeted) with no reliable form of transportation? This will help in so many ways, including the following:
- Transporting school supplies and bibles
- Transporting supplies and gifts for Christmas programs and Easter dinners
- Getting groceries for daily meals
- Taking sick children to the doctor
- Assisting getting the staff to work
- Safely picking up money wires for rent, teachers salaries, ...
Introducing our sCARves Campaign. A good used car will cost us $6,000. We can do this!!!
A gracious donor who is passionate about helping children receive an education and develop life skills and wants to encourage others to join in, has purchased scarves made by women who live in the community near our school and are trying to support their families. This donor has caught the dream of RCF, Inc. For every donation of $75. or more, we will see that you receive a beautiful scarf from a Pakistani woman in need. Your entire donation will go toward purchasing the CAR and is tax deductible. sCARves for a cause! Thank you in advance from the children, staff, and Board!

The love of the children in Pakistan overflows to their sponsors and to those who give to RCF, Inc. so that they might experience the love of Jesus when real life is so scary all around them. Thank you for giving them a safe harbor and hope!
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind." This is the first and greatest commandment and the second one is like it: "Love your neighbor as yourself." (Matthew 22:37)
Here are the children of RCS, wearing the friendship bracelets that our little champion Ava made them. Thanks to YOU all the children had a blessed Christmas because they know that caring people in the US and Canada love them and are praying for them. Thanks to you the boys all received new jeans in their size (with a little room to grow). The girls received warm dresses for the cold months. All participated in the Christmas program and had fellowship together over a meal that you provided. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the love you have extended this Christmas. With love from the children, staff, and Board of RCF, Inc
Meet Ava - the beautiful daughter of one of the members on the Board for Redeemer Christian Foundation, Inc. Ava is making friendship bracelets (complete with individual names in beads) for ALL 50 of the children at our Christian school in Pakistan. The children who will be receiving them are all orphans or impoverished children of the streets. This little girl with a huge heart has also donated ALL of her tooth fairy money toward our monthly birthday celebration fund. Most of the children do not know when their birthday is let alone have it recognized or, better yet, celebrated. Ava lives out, every day, following what the Bible says, "Truly I tell you, that whatever you did for one of the least of these my brothers (and sisters) of Mine, you did for Me."
RCS CELEBRATES 2nd BIRTHDAY
Though Redeemer Christian School started as a handful of children in a "home school" setting, it has now grown to 49 full time students ages 5-13. This October we celebrated our official 2nd Birthday. The children, most of whom are orphans or impoverished, had a wonderful time celebrating with balloons, games, and of course, birthday cake with two giant sparkler candles.
The Director said, " It is amazing to see what God has done here with the school thanks to the love and compassion and softened hearts of people who live so far away. The children are growing in the knowledge of the love of Jesus Christ."
Thank you to those who have partnered with us to break the chains of illiteracy and darkness in this corner of the world.
The first speaking competition on biblical topics like love, mercy, forgiveness, and repentance at the school was a success. Many happy and proud children, as well as a nice meal. Sidraa was the winner, followed by Nisha, Kajok, Daud (just 9 years old and having to stand on a stool), and Saima. Congratulations to them and all the children that participated! You can find even more pictures in our photo gallery.
Some pictures of recent activities. On the top is a birthday party that RCF held for the children. as most of the children have never celebrated their birthdays, ever! In the middle is a picture of three of our newer students. Thanks to your generosity, we're up to 45 students now! Orphaned, impoverished, and persecuted children, who otherwise would never have the chance to receive an education are not just enjoying, but loving and thriving in school. Even braving flooding during rainy season (bottom photo) to make it to school! Please help us serve even more by sponsoring a child or visiting our Donation page.
Thanks to your generous new and continued contributions, we have been able to serve more children as well as providing them with much needed supplies and regular meals. Below are a few of the pictures of the children with their new backpacks, new children's bibles, and enjoying a much appreciated meal.
