New Lord’s Servants Academy #2….Finished!

After breaking ground in August and only 3 months of work, the building is finished and ready for a January opening of the school year and new 6th grade class.

The first use of this building however, in mid January, prior to school opening, will be as community medical clinic as part of a 3 day outreach to love the Lyavo, Kenya community with screenings, general treatments, and medicine.  This is a primary project of our team of 8 people leaving the US in early January.

Thank you for your prayers and help and join us in praising God.  In broad terms, a miracle is…God acting.  This community would never be able to raise up a school.  God acted and we got to be part of it.  I love it!

New Lord’s Servants Academy #2….October Update

With a little over 2 months after breaking ground, we are making great progress and we are well prepared to meet the January opening of the school year and new 6th grade class.  This is an amazingly short timetable.  Painting, windows, indoor prep, and furniture is needed yet.

The first use of this building however, in mid January, prior to school opening, will be as community medical clinic as part of a 3 day mission trip effort to love the Lyavo, Kenya community with screenings, general treatments, and medicine.

Funding is still a need as we trust God to provide the remaining needed funds of over $10,000.  Please pray about helping with this and join us in praising God.

New Lord’s Servants Academy Building #2 update…

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.

   
    
 

August trip to Kenya and Uganda… Update 8

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.

Just happy.....

August Trip to Kenya and Uganda… Update 7

It’s been a good day.  Took all the kids to the Kitale Museum nature park.  They are on school break and I’ve enjoyed being around them so much.  Tomorrow is our last day here already.
