We broke ground on this building only a month ago, during our visit to LSH in Kitale, Kenya. This new building which doubles the capacity of our current 4 room building is necessary as we have expanded LSA to K-5 and wil further expand to include 6th grade in January. LSA has proven to be a blessing to the community that needs quality, affordable primary school options.
Progress is very fast with MSM projects as you can see in these sequence photos. Funding is a need as we trust God to provide the remaining half or $20,000 of the needed funds. Please pray about helping with this.
We have wrapped up our time at the Lord’s Servants Home and will travel all day tomorrow to the Stream of Hope Home in Uganda. This was a great visit. We saw the LSA #2 building get under way, implemented several improvements to the home, added to the playground, and spent a lot of time with the kids. Thanks for your prayers. Updates may be fewer from Uganda since the Internet is not as accessible for us there.

All kids got letters from sponsors and supporters. This is a big favorite for them each trip.

Doesn’t this just make you smile? Partial Nursery thru 2nd Grade classes have started this 3rd term of 2013. We are praying to fill Nursery thru 3rd grade classes beginning in January 2014. Full classes will have 32 children. This is really exciting. LSA will make a positive impact in the community around the Lord’s Servants Home for many many years as children in the area get a good education and know that God is working in their lives. Praise God and thank you for helping.
