Your Invitation to a Graduation | Ethiopia


Lifesong schools exist to prepare students–mentally and spiritually–to launch into the world. So it would seem appropriate at the end of a school year to reflect on the goodness of God.

At the end of the school year, each of the three Lifesong school campuses in Ethiopia has its own program, where the parents are invited, skits are performed, poems and essays are read, speeches are given, and the families hear a report on the school year that has just concluded. Awards are then given to the top students, the best clubs, the winning sports teams, and the honored staff members. And finally, the students go to their classrooms to receive their report cards. According to Gary, Misgana Ministies & Lifesong Ethiopia Director–

It’s a really big deal here in rural Ethiopia and we are happy to welcome large crowds!

The staff and parents always appreciate the festivities. At the Ziway Primary school one of the boys, Million, received the award for being the top student in third grade. And if that wasn’t enough, he received the award for being the top student in all grades from 1 to 4 (including 280 students).
He received an extra hug from his presenter, Gary.

At Adami Tulu, kindergarten graduates filed into the assembly, excited for the conclusion of a good year of studies. Lord-willing, they still have several years of school ahead of them, but they are off to a good start. Parents and staff, alike, are proud of their achievement.

Because of your faithful love and support, students in this class will have access to a great education, preparing them for a future in the community as bright as the sun. Thank you for praying for these children and contributing to their educational and spiritual success.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).
