NEW Secondary School Opens at GUMA NA YESU
Exciting things are happening at Harvest Ministry’s Guma Na Yesu in Uganda, East Africa. This week, a new Secondary School is launching for the older children.
The vision . . .
It’s the beginning of dreams-coming-true and many prayers being answered.
This week, in Uganda, East Africa, a new secondary school (high school) is launching to help the older teenage children at Guma Na Yesu (Keep With Jesus) Children’s Center. It’s called Kingdom Vocational Secondary School and the vision is for a Christ-centered secondary educational training center, with potential to become financially independent.
The secondary school is beginning with a combination of day students (who will pay tuition) and overnight boarding orphan children (who will receive free education).
Christian families from the local churches has been requesting a Christ-center secondary (high) school and Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center has been needing a secondary school to help the older children. This vision helps to fulfill both needs.
February orphan focus . . .
This month’s orphan-focused memory verse:
“Learn to do good; seek justice, reprove the ruthless,
defend the orphan, plead for the widow.”
This month’s orphan prayer focus: EDUCATION
Students check in . . .
(Some of the older children – orphans – from Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center who will be benefiting from the new secondary school. This secondary education, with a Christ-centered foundation, will give these teenagers increased training for life and hope for their futures.)
New uniforms . . .
Secondary Education (High School)
The property and buildings were formerly the main “mother-church” center; a few years ago, the main church moved to a new location and since that time, this building has been mostly unused. This is an exciting answer to prayer and a good example of making “full use” of what we have in our hands!
Caring Teachers . . .
Vocational Training . . .
Practical vocational skills includes carpentry, tailoring (sewing — which is also benefiting Guma Na Yesu Children’s Center by making the school uniforms), poultry farming, and goat keeping. We are also preparing to launch a Bible training school (using an international Bible college curriculum), both for these secondary students and for remote village pastors.
It’s a beginning of a new dream . . .
This week, the secondary (high) school began with over 30 students and 8 teachers . . . and many more students are in the process of enrolling.
NETS ministers, Naboth & Alice Tumuhairwe, are directing (and delegating) this new project, and we would appreciate if you would keep them (and us) in your prayers, for God’s wisdom and direction and provision.
