2016 Year-end Summary

Dear Beacon of Hope Supporters,

 I am always amused at this time of the year when I see support letters from large non-profit organizations that need to raise a million dollars in the last few days of the year or need to reach their matching challenge total.  I always wonder how much goes towards the mission and how much goes towards wages, rent, or other unnecessary luxuries.  Your love gifts to Beacon of Hope are used in the most efficient way possible.  We have no employees, no rent and very little overhead. Ninety five cents in every dollar goes directly to the mission!

Students all get a certificate for completing the program

  All of our team members volunteer their time because they love Jesus and they want to get the gospel message out to as many young people as they can.  They are carrying out the Matthew 28 Great Commission. Sowing the gospel seeds and spreading them far and wide from Durban, South Africa all the way up to Uganda's northern border with Sudan. 

  If you want to know how all this effort impacts the students that our teams reach, we have posted a few blogs with feedback from those who have benefited from the Smart Choices program.

  1. Testimony of an Early Student
  2. Testimont from Mosi-au-Tunya (Victoria Falls) 
  3. Teen Girls Testimony
  4. Student Comments Luzinga Secondary School

  We are able to take the Smart Choices message to students at a cost of a little over one dollar per student.  The Students receive:

  • Crucial information about AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
  • Character development guidance.
  • The Gospel through the showing of the Jesus Film.
