Congratulations, Folley!

Folley Kesselle is a good example of the mission that we are doing in Liberia with the children’s education. CAM, another ministry that has shared in the support of these orphans, drops their support of kids when they become 18 and only gives partial support before that age. New Hope Liberia pays for high school tuition (grades 7-12), uniforms and shoes for all the children, some school supplies, most of the teachers’ support, testing fees, graduation costs, and medical expenses for the older kids. Since most of the kids are two to four years behind in their education, NHL supports them so they can finish high school. Then the NHL scholarship committee helps them continue their education post-high school.
Folley came to the Comfort Dennis Orphanage on October 1997 when he was 11 years old. After graduating from high school, he worked at various jobs at the orphanage while going to school. Last year, he was the night manager. The kids are not paid for their work at the orphanage. Folley is the first one we sponsored for college. Now he plans to take the entrance exam for medical school. He became a Christian at a Rock Spring Presbyterian Church service where Bruce preached when Folley was directing the choir from the Comfort Dennis’ Orphanage. Below is his thank you letter to us.

Dear Sponsors,
Greetings come to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I write to express thanks and appreciation to you for everything you’ve done for me over the years.
Words are insufficient to express how good and caring you people are. From the first day of my educational endeavors, I have never been sent out of school for tuition or any other fees. In fact, there was not a day I owed any institution a penny. I am very happy for that.
The degree I have obtained is dedicated to the Tenth Presbyterian Church. In other words, nothing I have achieved is mine because if it hadn’t been for your tireless support I couldn’t have acquired anything.
Thank you very much and may God bless you as you continue to help the orphans and abandoned children of Liberia. Again, I say thank God, we made it.
Yours Sincerely,
Folley Kesselle
