Dear Friends,

November brings the season of fruitfulness and giving thanks. Friends of PEB is thankful for so much this year.  We are thankful for all of our new and continuing supporters, thankful for the contributions that you have made to help rebuild schools, curriculum and educate the children of Pakistan, and thankful for the safety and God's continued watch over PEB schools and the staff/students, to name just a few. Later this month, Friends of PEB will kick off our annual fundraising campaign. This year we are focusing our efforts on how small giving can make a large impact. Your contribution makes a world of difference to a child in Pakistan. May you and your loved ones have a blessed and love-filled Thanksgiving!

"And whatever you do in word or deed do everything in the name of Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the father through him." ~ Collosians 3:17 ESV

Martinpur Christian Boys High School!

The Martinpur Boys' plea for help has been answered and enough funding has been committed to break ground! Approval has been received to begin construction of Phase 1 for the new school building that will provide not only safe and clean facilities but an expansion of student enrollment. This is a HUGE accomplishment spearheaded by Sam Martin and family. We thank them not only for their generosity but for their vision and desire to fight for needs of the children of Martinpur.  Thank you to everyone who has thus far contributed to this project!

Friends of PEB Exploration Trip

Just recently, Friends of PEB Executive Director, Margy Trimble escorted a group of 3 American Travelers on the 2016 PEB Pakistan Exploration Trip. The group consists of Trish Sargent from Shandon Presbyterian Church of Columbia, SC, Clyde and Marilyn Coller from Wasatch Prebyterian Church of Salt Lake City, UT, and two PEB friends from the UK who joined them upon their arrival. This trip allows visitors the opportunity to visit PEB school facilities, see first-hand how charitable contributions are put to work, meet students and staff, and explore the wonder and beauty of Pakistani culture. We wish them all an amazing experience and safe travels. Look for more exciting photos in next month's edition of "Connections."
