Sponsorship Opportunity - Compassion International 
For many years, our Junior High students have supported Shewanda Sanon, a student from Haiti, through the Compassion sponsorship program.  With my departure in August, it is fitting for us to transfer that sponsorship to one of our Kish families until a new Youth Director is in place.  Would you be interested?  
Our own students have chipped in $28/month, which has assisted Shewanda with her education, food & shelter, and much more.  We have seen her through 7th grade, and it would be nice for Kish to keep taking of her as she grows up!  Message back for more information.
