My name is Autumn Buzzell and I live and work in Ghana, West Africa with City of Refuge Ministries. Here, I run our school, Faith Roots International Academy, and get to be a part in rescuing and the healing of children who have been trafficked into the fishing trade, orphaned, abandoned, and those who just need a little extra loving. What an amazing gift this life is!

Will the school actually open??

So, we received some tough news today. The group who has been fundraising for our school will not have enough money fundraised for us to open in September. We have already hired some staff for the upcoming year, so this is a frustrating prospect to be faced with. We have enough money to plaster the walls, but need some help to put on our roof and to finish furnishing our classrooms (doors, toilets, sinks, chairs, windows, etc), about $45,000 worth of work.

Will you be praying for us? We want to walk forward in faith and just agree that school is going to start on time in September and pray that our funding will come in.

If you feel called to donate towards our school, we'd love to have you partner with us in that way. You can donate online at www.cityofrefugeoutreach.com. Just make sure to list "Faith Roots International Academy Building Fund" in the note line. If you'd like to donate by check, please write checks out to City of Refuge Ministries and send them to:

Thank you for your prayers and support. I am truly hoping that this school can open in September for the 100 students that we are beginning to enroll this next week!
