Looking Forward to 2015

ONLINE TEACHER TRAINING & CERTIFICATION:

GEP continues to provide scholarship assistance of $75 to fifty teachers from a group of over six hundred with an online continuing education & certification program in South America. The teachers reside in various Central and South American countries but connected to each other through this effective online training tool. Our goal is to double the number of teachers we reach with this program. We network with ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International) in this training. ACSI is an excellent and well respected organization that serves some of the world’s neediest schools.

CREATIVE ACCESS AREAS:

GEP is also networking with three additional organizations in the Asia Pacific region to assist in 73 new Christian schools. At present we partner with Leadership Development Int. (LDi) to assist them in providing an annual bonus of $80 to twenty school teachers in this area. An exploratory team from GEP hopes to travel to Asia in April 2015 to meet with some of these organizations. Pray about this potential of partnering with other groups.

STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM:

GEP continues to underwrite three university students in Guatemala and Honduras by providing them with a $1000 scholarship per year. In fact, Two of these students will be starting their third year of Medical School while the third is completing her first year of study leading to Medical School. It is our goal to add two additional students in this coming year.

LATIN AMERICAN PROJECTS:

GEP partnered with Strickland Construction here in the US to provide six new buildings for school houses in Guatemala & the Caribbean. Such a building is scheduled in Haiti for 2015 as a result of our partnership with Randolph World Ministries, Inc. GEP shares $3,000 per building to cover the cost of a cement floor. Additionally, potential projects are in the works for Honduras, Guatemala and Puerto Rico.

NEW WEBSITE COMING:

Bear with us as our website is down. We are in the process of revamping this website in order to make it more user-friendly and provide you with continuous information and updates.

We are living in interesting times, but God has called us “to work while it is yet day.” Please prayerfully consider how you may partner with us in expanding a Christian Worldview through education worldwide, giving children a “hope and a future”.
