Niger Trip – 2013

In just a few days, I leave on another trip to Niger. Ruth Jones, a Remember Niger Coalition Board Member will join me in bringing the support we have received from all of you — donations, thoughts and prayers.  Here are our objectives and goals for this trip:

  • See the progress that has been made on our building projects, including the new school building and latrines at Aguie!
  • Meet with our sponsored students to give them the cards, photos and gifts from their sponsors and to collect cards, stories and updated photos.
  • Deliver donated goods from Sunrise Ministries in Hudsonville, MI, including sunglasses and soccer balls.
  • Deliver donated school supplies and artwork from the students and families at Footprints Academy, in Woodbury, Minnesota.
  • Meet with leaders of the Evangelical Church of Niger regarding future plans and budgets.
  • Visit the schools we support. While there we’ll gather updates on the sponsored students, teachers, collect artwork and photographs. We’ll also create videos to share with you when we return.
  • Bring funds collected at our recent Alternative Gift Markets for new desks, beds, food and supplies.

Also, there’s still time to send in support for desks, beds, food and supplies.  And, there are still students who need sponsors!  You can go to to make a donation.

Thank you for your support!
