We are happy to announce that we exceeded our yearly goal for the Birth Hope Center at the Birthing Hope Tea 2023. We will be able to care for our girls, their babies, our staff and bring in new hurting young girls. It was a beautiful day filled with old and new friends of CHaRA. Dr. Rosolena Conroy shared about her time at the Birth Hope Center.
The Birth Hope Center is thriving. We have rescued thirteen girls. Eleven girls and eleven babies are living at the Center now. In January five girls will go to boarding school and two will go to Bible School. We have built two baby houses and hired two families to live in these houses. They will care for the babies of the mamas going to boarding school.
We completed our second Girl’s Time and Purity Project in a government school in Dongobesh. Twenty-seven percent of secondary school girls become pregnant in Tanzania. The stories of the girls we have rescued made it clear, this is a necessary program in our schools. The great news is the government and school leadership want the program in their schools.
THESE YOUNG WOMEN HAVE BEEN FOUND! ALL TWELVE GIRLS ASKED TO BE BAPTIZED. IT WAS A GLORIOUS DAY. Pastors Mark and Joy Alexander and their son Levi joined us at the Birth Hope Center in Dongobesh for the baptism of our girls. Thank you for joining us to impact the lives of these special young women. They have traveled a hard path to find Jesus and His wonderful plans for them.
This month we celebrated the first year at the Birth Hope Center, Esther and Mary’s first birthdays, and Fausta’s 16th Birthday. Fausta is Mary’s Mama. We have a donor that makes celebrating with cake and gifts possible each month…
June 1, 2022 our first girl leaves the Center. Scola began school at Faraja Seminary School. Two weeks prior we met Pastor Tomas at the Dongobesh Church. He preached with passion about the Holy Spirit. Next he prayed for all our girls. At the end of the service he dedicated our newest baby, Adam Mark. We had lunch together and our fellowship was like we had known him a long time. He visited the Birth Hope Center and was deeply moved.
