In 1986, the Good Samaritan School (GSS) opened in a modest building that was borrowed from Predisan. The school started with just one first grade class. In subsequent years, the school became quite successful adding grades and eventually building its own facility.
Over the past few years, there has been a reduction of sponsorships. As a result, the school is only serving 396 children in grades one through six. At the end of the 2016 school year, there was great concern that the school was going to have to close its doors after 30 years of serving children and families. Misión Para Cristo was approached last August by the Metro church inquiring if we would consider taking over the responsibility of GSS. There were 396 students with only 160 sponsors. On paper, it was not feasible for the school to stay open, but in our hearts, we knew that the lives of 396 children and their families were depending on it. After many prayers and a visit to GSS, the decision was made for the mission to take the oversight and to partner with the school. GSS needs to continue to provide the quality education it has been providing. The mission already has a sponsorship program, Kingdom Kids – For Kids, For Kingdom, For Eternity. The school has great debt-free facilities, quality teachers and staff, and excellent leadership from Tonita and Karina, the Director and Administrator respectively. Additionally, an outstanding Honduran Board of Directors provides constant guidance.
The school has the capacity to educate 640 children in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and grades one through six. Our goal, with your help, is to secure sponsors for all 396 current students. Our dream is to restore the Pre-K and Kindergarten programs and bring the school back to full capacity by 2018.
The school will continue to maintain its name, The School of the Good Samaritan, but will be a part of Kingdom Kids-Honduras, For Kids, For Kingdom, For Eternity.
We are thankful for all who have had a part in the history of this great school. Our prayer is that we can continue the heritage that has gone on before us over the last 30 years.
