After their January trip, the Edwards saw the Lord raise the funds to continuing paying the staff through 2012 and to have the school plastered on the outside.

God raised up a team of eight others to accompany them on a return trip to Wisdom Community School in June 2012.
The mission for Wisdom was accomplished:
  • Monthly monetary support for three teachers and one caretaker
  • Cement plastering the exterior of the building to prevent deterioration of the earthen bricks
  • Painting the interior and exterior walls
  • Teaching materials (books, paper, pencils, teaching aids, etc.)
  • New doors and locks
  • Recreation equipment - soccer balls, etc.
  • Music equipment, hand instruments
  • New Testament for each child
  • Books and bookcases 
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste for each child
  • Numerous Bible materials and craft projects

LIVING WELL partners with Better World

After a site visit in January, 2012, Ed and Donna Edwards (Living Well) returned to Oklahoma with the children of Wisdom on their hearts.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress. (James 1:27a)

At that time, the school had no consistent funding stream to pay the three teachers and one caretaker. We were waiting on the Lord to provide, so that the school could remain open.
