The new first block of the Kollukhedi village school has been completed! We thank you for enabling us to make it a reality with your prayers and sacrificial giving.
We faced several obstacles and delays during the construction process. I was able to solve these problems head on and will use that knowledge to prevent them during the next round of construction.
It is a very strong building with a reinforced cement concrete foundation, pillars, lintels and roof. The two classrooms have working windows, doors, electric ceiling fans, lights, new tables and benches, and black boards to ensure that our students are provided with good ventilation, safety, cleanliness, and comfort. The exterior is painted with white cement and will be color washed after the monsoon season.
With the additional block, we now have 200 students and a long waiting list. There are 12 teachers. We need one more teacher and are prayerfully considering a long list of applicants.
Each day starts with prayers, a short message from the Bible, and singing choruses. The regular curriculum is followed and includes appropriate reference to the Bible. The students receive free tuition, free uniforms, school bags, water bottles, textbooks, notebooks, and sweaters, all provided by God through you. Twice a month they enjoy a sumptuous, nutritious lunch. Students coming from distant villages receive free transportation.
In, faith we look to the Lord to provide for the construction of a second block of classrooms. We thank you for your prayers and financial support. May God bless you and yours most abundantly.
