Chrisann and I returned from a wonderful 30th Anniversary after spending a week in Phoenix. I stopped by the mailbox, picked up the mail, sat at my office desk and proceeded to open mail, like usual.

Boom! $25,000, just like that! We were so pumped! All of my “pacing-prayers,” Congolese, family, and friends praying, give a BIG THANK YOU! What a catalyst, launching us into the new year towards completing the second story of our Academy.

We have four Bible Colleges in six regions of the DR Congo. Our teachers not only teach at our regional Colleges but make trips into remote villages. It is a very hard, grueling trip. They are dependent on the transportation of others going the direction of our teacher’s trips.

Our College teachers are asking for help. Last year we purchased one motorcycle and a few bicycles. This year we are asking help for two motorcycles due to the longer trips and reliability. Can you help in this area?

Each motorcycle is $1,400.

Academy attendance is strong in the New Year, 2022.

Again, thank you so much for helping us raise spiritual leaders through education in our Academy. Children’s education is such a change agent for the future.

“Our Big Ask for 2022”

We are in need of finishing our second story for our Academy. We are asking churches and individuals to please consider giving towards this large project. $25,000 of $35,000 has rolled in. We are in need of finishing strong with another $10,000.

We are in need of 155 bench-desks to seat three children per. The cost is $50 each. Can you help?
