The School Continued.....

This is their playground.

The principal in one of the classrooms. He said today, "I don't go to church but I do pray twice a day." Pray that as we partner with this school that we have opportunities to present the true gospel to him. That's our hope and prayer. We don't just want to be do gooders. It would be easy to be overwhelmed by the needs. Meeting the needs not only helps us obey the commands of Scripture to act mercifcully but it also helps build trust in a community lacking it. As that trust is built, we then have tremendous opportunities to not only tell them about Christ but to show them Christ. My generation in the townships are either dead or dying. That in part makes it even more important to reach this young generation. The gospel is what will bring hope and change South Africa. That's the goal.

awesome. so awesome.
To answer your far as I know IC has the Schools For Schools program for Uganda only, at this point. I think they just 'started somewhere'. I know they have plans to expand the IC goals around the world, but I have no idea what the plans are for any of it.

HOw much $ would be needed to get your school at an 'acceptable' level?
