Sherrie Fausey started Christian Light School about 20 years ago, to provide Christian education to impoverished children and families in a “ravine” area of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. God has provided for and blessed her vision. Through hurricanes, earthquakes, and epidemics, CLS has grown to what it is today-hundreds of children being educated from pre-school age children to high school graduates, some of whom are attending university, as well as returning to CLS as teachers themselves, with a large staff of committed teachers and support workers. With the support of many churches and individuals, God has taken one retired teacher’s vision, and blessed an entire nation.
FSBC has had the privilege to be one of those supporting churches, with our gifts of money and regular teams of people traveling to Haiti, beginning in 2003 with a first grade teacher who followed God’s leading to help Sherrie in the early days of CLS. Through the years many FSBC members and friends have helped build the campus to the beautiful facility that it is today, and to help keep it maintained. Team members have played with children, listened to readers, built chairs and desks, designed and maintained the system for solar energy, helped with the feeding program, taught first aid courses, provided teacher training, and much more.
Whether you have heard Sherrie speak several times, or not at all, please join us for this evening of information and inspiration, so that we’ll be better equipped to support Sherrie, as well as our team members going to Haiti in December, with our prayers, interest, and finances.
