School to help African hospital

Trinity Lutheran School in Joppa annually adopts a project to help others.

For this school year, the project is to collect 1 million pennies to help build a medical center in Zimbabwe. One million represents the number of Zimbabwean children who have been orphaned by AIDS.

All grades are participating in the project, and they have raised $1,200.

The school recently hosted Pastor Lloyd Nyarota from Zimbabwe, the area project coordinator for the United Methodist Church in his country.

Nyarota discussed his church's mission school. Trinity pupils will participate in a pen pal letter exchange during the school year with students in the village where the medical center will be built.
