We all know that we cannot take money with us when we die but I read a book recently that said, “You can’t take it with you but you can send it ahead.” This is of course in line with the words of Jesus, “store up for yourselves treasures in heaven.”
Sohail in Pakistan recently contacted me and said they had lost 50% of their funding for the ten Sunday schools for the children of the bonded slaves working in the brick kilns and asked if we could help. Although they call them Sunday schools they are actually simple schools which run three hours a day for 6 days a week teaching basic education. Sohail was deeply upset at the prospect of closing half the schools for these desperately poor children. The cost of running these simple schools was only just over £100 a month. It seemed a pretty wise investment to fund four of the five schools that would have to be closed.
I am very grateful to our supporters who make it possible for us to help these very poor children. I hope you consider it a wise investment of your support.
