    Hello Everyone! The images that were posted on Facebook about the condition of the school in Foequelleh so disappointing. That school has provided 100s of us our early education and seeing it going down the drain is a disgrace. We need to do something as quick as possible to revive the situation. During the 2016 convention in Columbus, Ohio, we agreed as a group to raise funds in order to give the school a facelift. Let's remember our pledges. We also accepting friends and well-wishers to assist us. Remember the words of Pastor Marc: " Blessed to be a blessing." We have the opportunity to help our local community. Through our collective efforts success is assured. Now, we have created a Gofundme account, please make a little donation to this fund so others can be encouraged to assist us.
