Tek4Kids, Inc. (Gary and Cathy Boice’s nonprofit) uses education and technology to break the poverty cycle in Haiti.  They provide existing schools in Haiti with clean water, electricity, computers and teachers.  Children share clean water with their families, reducing instances of cholera and waterborne illnesses. Students that receive computer skills from the Tek4Kids program will be able to find much more advanced jobs despite the high unemployment rate in the area. To learn more about Tek4Kids, visit www.tek4kids.org

The ribs of the vaulted ceiling are painted gray and ivory outlined in gold leaf.  Notice the ornate woodcarvings or bosses at the intersections of the ribs.  The bosses were originally installed as a means for ventilation into the attic.  Over the middle aisle there are two smaller bosses; the letters IHS stands for the name of Jesus Christ in Greek; VM stands for Virgo Maria, Virgin Mary in Latin.
