My prayer this weekend, Lord I have been planting seeds, when will there be a harvest!
God gently pointed the Harvest is happening and it will multiply 10times! It is dream come true! When I started the sponsorship program in 2009, my dream was to educate and train the children of Bakka, enabling them to provide for themselves.
The village average education is 4th grade. A few parent/ guardians attended first year of High School, none had graduated. Most reported they did not have the school fees to attend.
2015 The Harvest!
Our first sponsored children is now an auto mechanic, earning enough money to provide for himself, while he continues training! He never dreamed of the possibility he was not a good student. When he failed the high school entrance exam he thought he was nothing. We offered the opportunity to provide him with training. He picked mechanics. He is now celebrating his skills and his ability to earn a living. Making his dream a reality cost $2,000 over 6 years 2009- 2015 His primary education – 3rd through 7th grade and 2 years of mechanic training.
Our first candidate for College. Peter and his grandmother still can't believe it is a possibility! They are so grateful! Peter is studying very hard and dreaming very BIG!
Kisoboka is supporting 50 students in high school. They already have more education than most parents and guardians in the village! They are dreaming of becoming lawyers, doctors, nurses, accountant, pilots, drivers and so much more!
Kisoboka has (27) 7th graders preparing to take the High School entrance exam in November. These children are living at school and studying day, night and weekend without break. The test they have to take is a government test. The schools in the Village do not have the supplies or resources to provide the standard of education the children will be tested at. I can't imagine the stress!
2016 our High School students will grow to (77) students.
This is an amazing harvest praise God from whom all blessings flow.
I am continuing to pray for a harvest of Sponsors one for every child. When this happens we will be able to exceed the Government requirement.
