Adventist Christian Education Needs Your Help! |DR. R. CLIFFORD JONES
Dear Friend of Adventist Education
Warmest Christian greetings in the precious and powerful name of our Lord, who desires that all our children should be taught of Him (Isa. 54:13).
The Lake Region Conference (LRC) takes seriously our Lord’s desire to have His children learn of Him. Yet we are acutely aware that providing quality Adventist education calls for an expenditure of funds that are often lacking or in short supply. As a result, each year scores of parents and guardians make the painful decision not to send their children to our schools. Simply put, they just can’t afford it.
I believe that we should do everything we possibly can to ensure that every child desirous of attending a Seventh-day Adventist school in the Lake Region Conference is able to do so. Lack of finances should NOT be the reason a child fails to register or withdraws from one of our schools.
To help provide financial scholarships to those in need, we are attempting to raise $300,000 on April 21, 2018. The plan is for 15,000 friends of Adventist education to contribute a minimum of $20 on or before that date. I believe that the plan is reasonable and doable, as $20 does not even represent the cost of a meal for two at most fast food restaurants.
The above graphic shows how the funds will be distributed. Twenty-five percent of all proceeds collected will be used as a base for future funding and scholarships, awarded through an application process. The remaining seventy-five percent will be divided equally among our eight schools for tuition assistance. Please prayerfully consider partnering with us in this worthwhile investment in our children.
Thank you for being one of the thousands who will make the dream of a child come true. Your tax-deductible gift will go a long way in keeping a child in church school, where he or she will receive an education for now and eternity. Remember, Adventist education does provide children with a distinct advantage!
