The work has begun.
Since the beginning, we knew that
providing our own school for the orphans would be the best solution to meeting
their education. And it is not only the orphans that live at the orphanage, but
others in the area who need the opportunity to be able to go to school, along
with children from extremely poor families who cannot pay the school fees.
But it is a big task. We do not know
how God will meet not only the needs of building, but also the ongoing needs.
But we have begun. As it was when we built the dormitory for the children, all is in the
hands of God. We build as He enables. We do not know how long it will take, but God will enable.
It is amazing to think that four years ago these kids were sleeping on a muddy dirt floor. God has been so good.

Dear beloved Dad, Mum, Church and

that because of the limited land space we now will be building storey building.

through those who supply materials that help them to supply materials without
obstruction and this will help the engineer to set the building as by the
As the by the new idea of building the storey building will
need involving even more material and resources that will make the building to
be completed. The covid-19 since last year has changed the even the school
calendar now the school will be closed for on one week as from 17th July to July
25th 2021 and begin new term. We are trusting God for school fees.
On the hand food is the challenge like now we have no food

Proverbs 22:9 —
Generous hands are blessed hands because they give bread to the poor.
Zachariah 4:9-10 — The
hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his hands will
complete it. Then you will know that the LORD of Hosts has sent me to you. For
who has despised the day of small things? But these seven eyes of the LORD,
which scan the whole earth, will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the
hand of Zerubbabel.”
We praise God that in the beginning of humble start God is
in it. May God bless you all,

which amounts to $50 each time, but other than that, your donated money will be
