Encompass missionaries in the Central African Republic gathered recently with the students of Project Hope and Charité who have graduated from high school. Each was presented with a French Bible including a page with a Bible verse each missionary picked especially for the graduates. Missionary Mark Simms challenged them to pursue excellence, and Pastor Laurent Selonkouw encouraged them to work with all their might.
A number of the students are headed to college. Each graduate has been offered a $400 scholarship to help with his or her first year of school.
