Christian Heritage School - It's about sowing seeds in the community for Jesus
VIDEO 1m 20s
A farmer went out to sow his seed.
As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.
Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Matthew 13:8

That's what YWAM Recife is doing.  Herança Cristã is like a garden for Jesus and each child is a seed.
Our goal is a crop one hundred times what was sown.

CHRISTIAN HERITAGE SCHOOL

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

Heranca Crista

We started HERANÇA CRISTÃ school in 2001 as a way to reach into the community.  The project is an outstanding success and has influenced thousands of young lives.

Our problem though is funding.  We are in one of the poorest regions of North East Brazil and we really struggle to survive.  Somehow though God will make a way.  Maybe you could help.

We receive some income from school fees but it is never enough.  There are many who cannot afford it and we can't simply turn them away.  We end up granting a lot of scholarships.

The parents speak very highly of the school because they can see the difference in their children.  The kids are loved, guided, educated, taught life skills and of course they learn about Jesus.  He's the reason for the project.

Grateful Mother

Selma Bernardo Campelo

"At first I sent my daughters to this school because it was affordable and close to our home.

Today I thank God for this school because of the care, affection and values that they transmit to my daughters.

You can't put a value on this. It's priceless."

SO WHAT"S YWAM RECIFE DOING WITH A SCHOOL?

In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost. Matthew 18:14

We came to work with street children because the Father called us.  He is brokenhearted for them.

We quickly learned that one of the best ways to arrest the flow of children to the streets was to work with 'Children at Risk'.  That's what Herança Cristã is all about.

Nowadays we have a number of ministries working in this area.  Herança Cristã is one.  We also run a special three month school to train workers how to work with, and minister to children at risk.  Our project 'Projeto Amar' works with teen girls.  The YWAM Recife soccer club 'Show de Bola' trains and disciples around 120 boys every week.

We continue to visit the street children every week to try to help.  Our ministry there is rescue and restoration.  We will never desist.  For those who want to leave the streets we have an orphanage for girls and an orphanage for boys.  And we have the broken heart of the father and Jesus leading us on.

THE JOURNEY TILL NOW

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying,
“This is the way; walk in it.”  Isiah 30:21

  • Homeless

    WE CAME TO WORK WITH STREET CHILDREN

    The Father is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.  Matt 18:14

    But we saw a need to reach the kids before they go to the streets

  • OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD

    Education can help break the poverty cycle.

    * In Brazil more than 40% of children live in poverty, of which 5.8 million live in extreme poverty.  4 million live in slums. Almost 70% of children from 0 up to 3 years old do not have access to public or private day-care centers.  1.6 million students between 15 and 17 years-old drop out of school.

  • SCHOOL ON A VERANDA AND SCHOOL IN A GARAGE

    We decide to start our own school.

    We call it Herança Cristã.

    In very humble beginnings, a garage and a veranda, we experience a sovereign move of God.  So many children want to come to our school we simply don't have enough room.

  • THE FIRST REAL CLASSROOMS

    A church in the heart of Scotland hold fundraisers for Herança Cristã.

    The fundraiser Haddington's Got Talent enabled us to build our very first classrooms and ablution facilities.  God moves again and we run out of space again.

  • HERANÇA CRISTÃ SCHOOL BLOCK

    A church in Salem sleep in the streets in cardboard boxes.

    They win the hearts and minds of the press and a magazine called Elle Girl run a fashion show as a fundraiser.   One small church donates their entire building fund.  Enough funds are raised to start the school building block.

  • PLEASE BE PART OF THIS STORY

    Maybe you could  hold a fundraiser for us or adopt us as your church project.

    Christian Heritage School needs what every school needs.  Chairs, books, computers etc.  We struggle to pay our teachers.  Most of the time our team of volunteers simply make do.

PLEASE CONSIDER HOLDING A FUNDRAISER FOR US

We would be so grateful.  So will the children.  We've had churches hold car wash days, sleep in the streets in cardboard boxes, hold talent quests.  All with the common goal to help the children.  Every little bit helps.  And one day the King will say:

‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Matthew 25:34-36

Have you ever noticed that sometimes when you look into the children's eyes, you can see Jesus looking back at you?

“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me. Matthew 18:3-5

Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “
‘From the lips of children and infants you, Lord, have called forth your praise’?” Matthew 21:16

On Independence Day - Our school made its mark in our community.
We marched in the streets. We raised our banners in the name of the Lord our God - Psalm 20:5
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation. Rom 1:16
Because my name will be great among the nations, says the Lord - Mal 1:11
Escola Herança Cristã is our heritage - made possible by so many of you out there.
We celebrate the diversity of the regions of Brasil.
We celebrate our special heritage with Portugal.
We celebrate our heritage in the nations of the world.
We are a mixture of so many colours and races.
We are grateful and proud to be Escola Herança Cristã.
And wear the uniforms so many of you helped to make possible.
Because you were obedient to what God asked, we were able to make our mark in our community.
