His Chase provides a comprehensive biblically-based student sponsorship program in Rwanda, for the children who were raised at Noel Orphanage.

Let LOVE Be Your Highest Goal

When we boil down all the fancy words, the lists of goals, and the mission statements of His Chase, what really fuels this entire ministry is LOVE.  Love is the end goal---that our students will know and understand how deeply they are loved, AND that they turn what they've received into what they give away, living lives centered around loving others. And all of this is possible, only because generous people share their love with these kids, through their support, encouragement, and prayer.   

A Story of Success

Stop what you're doing and read this blog. Because this story paints a perfect picture of what His Chase is all about.  We are in an exciting season for this ministry, as we officially celebrate the final months of our FIFTH year of the education program and the SEVENTH year of His Chase Foundation's existence.

Do you know what makes these markers worth celebrating? The students we serve, and their amazing accomplishments.  It is in their achievements that we realize the full impact of education sponsorship, and the power it has to alter the course of these students' futures.

Today I tell you the story of Eric and Emmanuel. {And I show you the AMAZING photography of our own Claver!}

A Small, but Mighty Army

I absolutely love watching God do His thing in this ministry.  He stirs hearts.  He heals hearts.  He draws us toward His plans.  And, often He takes our plans, and turns things upside down and inside out.  We have watched him do that in this ministry over and over again.  He comes in and does it all in a completely different way than we thought. And, this has been a VERY significant discovery for me along the way:  His way is not always bigger (or easier) or covered with glitter, but it's ALWAYS best. Oftentimes it's a seemingly harder way, a hidden path, and a slow, but steady growth.  In fact, it's the kind of growth that sneaks in and surprises you with its steadfastness, at the very moment that you have your head on the desk wondering what to do next.  When we have been stumped, He is not. When we were worried, He was not.  When we have felt small, He reminds us that He's mighty.  And when we thought we needed glitter and marketing to get more people involved, or to be "like other ministries", He has instead given us all we need through a faithful few.   

Raising Up New Foundations

"And the Lord will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.  And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations..."  Isaiah 58:11-12

University 101

Before I get to the point of my writing today, I must follow-up on my last blog...you know, the one where we asked for $50,000 for our unsponsored students to finish the school year strong?  God never ceases to amaze me.  While we did not fully reach the $50,000 goal, we were able to pay every school bill that was immediately due.  So, we count that as a great success!  With almost $35,000 donated by so many of you generous people, we are able to finish the year stronger than we were before.  We had new donors who joined us, an incredibly generous church who gave, and so many who are already sponsors and supporters, who went above and beyond their monthly donations to faithfully support these efforts.  So, thank you to ALL who gave to our Unsponsored Student Fund!  We are forever grateful.
