Ryan and Gretchen fire fund

On January 25, 2015, Carla and I are going to run the Mardi Gras Half Marathon in New Orleans.  Please help be the breeze at our back and push us around the course by making a donation to the Grace Emmanuel School.

About Grace Emmanuel School

In 2004, Jesus in Haiti Ministries hired a teacher for 15 homeless children from Cabaret, Haiti, who had no other opportunity to receive an education.

Our God of small beginnings took this single act of faith and blessed it abundantly.

Today Grace Emmanuel School is government-accredited, employs 32 committed teachers, and serves over 260 energetic students.

Now buildings are being constructed to replace tents!

We need to continue to build Grace Emmanuel School.

With your help, we can give our students the opportunity to learn in a distraction-free environment, with walls to hang a chalkboard and keep out noise, desks to call their own, and a beautiful space to dream big, God-sized dreams.
