Hope & Purpose

Standard

This morning I spent an amazing two hours in a learning centre of Roma children in Kosova. If children here aren’t registered for school by the time they are 8 they have to pass a test to get in… A little tricky if you’ve never been to school to learn to read and write in the first place!

What a blessing to share in a little of  what’s going on there. The centre teaches Maths, English and Albanian to Roma children over 8 to prepare them for the entrance test. This week they had their test and all the children who sat it are now enrolled for school in September!

Today I taught Maths in Albanian to small groups of children. I had all the basic words I needed in my limited vocabulary. God is good in preparing us in the just the right way ahead of time.

I’ve been praying for insight, wisdom and discernment in where and how He wants me to serve Him. My heart sang a loud and joyful song this morning whilst I was at the school. It has been heavy for a long time with the burden of an education system that just doesn’t to meet the needs of the children here. Empowering teachers to do more? Being a stepping stone to get those who are marginalised in to the system? Supporting those who are in it to achieve the best they can? Lead Lord, I will follow.

Psalm 25v4-5
Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You.
