Today we are remembering how much God has blessed our village. Only a few years ago we were struggling to build the church, and now we have this plus two huge classroom blocks, a library, two latrines & admin offices. God truly loves this community, and we are so thankful for all of you who made these dreams happen.

We are one step closer to having power at the school & church! The lines are being run, and now we just have to wait for the utility company to connect our buildings to the main power. The kids couldn't be more excited - they say they can't wait to be back at school and stay past the sunset!

Another successful food distribution for our families. Many of them are out of work due to the virus restrictions, so the food means a great deal to them and their children. They are so thankful for the amazing supporters who give.

This is Joy, our rock-star social worker who has been consistently running discipleship programs, home visits, and food distributions despite the craziness Corona has caused. We are so thankful for her!

These might just look like huge logs, but to us they look like a miracle! Electricity is coming to our village! We never dreamed this could happen when we first opened our mud-walled school with rocks for desks.

One Month of rice is bagged & ready for our families to pick up! Can you believe the mommas carry that on their heads for miles back to their homes? Often with a baby tied on their back.

“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes.” Psalm 133

Each year your donations buy backpacks full of books, pencils, stationary, and erasers. Without YOU, those backpacks would be empty and these little lives a little less full.

In rurally areas like ours, times are especially tough. Normally, many of our families live on less than $1 a day. The parents provide for their children buy selling vegetables or making charcoal each day. This has not really been possible due to social distancing & curfew guidelines. If it weren’t for the food distributions that we are giving out, they would really be struggling to eat each day.  We are so thankful to all who continue to make this vital ministry possible.

I have been so proud of our community during this difficult time. They are doing so well with wearing masks and making sure that each family is safe. The kids are still at home, and the mammas come to church to get food. Thankfully, our community has not had any illness, and we are praying that continues to be the case!
