When Miss Marlowe’s eighth grade homeroom decided to make a difference in the lives of the children of Faith Children’s Village in Zambia, they never dreamed their vision would encompass the entire school. “It all started when Mr. Crockett (pictured with family) shared a video in chapel about the village,” says Miss Marlowe. “My students wanted to help the orphans. We began the project, and the Lord did the rest.”
When the elementary heard about the effort, they also got behind the Zambia project. The students showed great enthusiasm and compassion by bringing in gum and donations everyday. One elementary student donated all that she had and said, “I really wanted a Nintendo DS that I had been saving for, but the orphans needed the money more than I did.” Donating thirty-five pounds of bubble gum and almost $1000 to Faith Children’s Village helped the orphans have a very merry Christmas.
