USA – Let the little children come to Me, May 31, 2021

Text from Pr. Charles on May 31, 1 am (10 hours ahead of PST)
 

“We finished to buy all the bricks needed all the sand we paid some money to Engineer some iron bars to make the basement concrete stones even marram soil for the foundation cement. the money was over but the foundation was kicked off.”

Charles & Meriam, serve as the central Uganda coordinators in Kayunga. They help build church families, coordinate outreach crusades, oversee the Bible school and farming projects and are currently using their support for a gospel radio show that is now bringing many to salvation. Work was just completed on a new larger building to accommodate the growing fellowship, with the idea of using the smaller older structure for a children’s ministry. The Lord had already spoken to Charles to start a primary school for the children, so we purchased a property adjacent to the existing property for that purpose. With the shutdown and the poor opportunities offered at the government school, the priority of starting the school was shifted to start at the next term instead of waiting until the next year, The government and others had shown little or no concern for children, so some Muslim families decided the only ones that care about their children are the born-again Christians and had shared that with Pr. Charles. Pr. Charles approached the District Education Officer and received permission to make some improvements to the older building, including a proper toilet and the school could begin on the agreement the new building would be available by the end of the year. We were able to send money to help meet those requirements and textbooks were bought by the Harvest Kids from the USA. Eighty students, including 25 Christian and 35 Muslims are registered, teachers on staff, and school has started. We are excited about this door that God has opened for us. Unexpectedly, the District Education Officer, under some pressure, visited and has changed the agreement and is now demanding that construction begins within four weeks or they will shut down the school. The budget for the 2 classrooms and office for 45 students in each class is $13,590: building $4,110, roof $3,900, doors and windows $1,780 and plaster $3,800. We have received the $4,110 and are trusting God for the remainder.

“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

(Matthew 19:14)
