GoodNews In Abeokuta, Nigeria

Update with two pictures 9/24/2016 12:01 AM

I only have a moment to write just now so I today's post will be brief. Bro. Shobanke called this week with super great news. The new classrooms for the GoodNews Christian School in Abeokuta are nearing completion. The school had 160 students at the end of the school year and they were expecting more growth. They were completely out of room.

Bro. Shobanke told me in May of their need to build more classrooms and we immediately jumped on board. The school is very near and dear to our hearts and God is using it to touch many young lives And their parents. We, along with others, sent money to get started and the project has snow balled since then. Bro. Shobanke was praising God for the progress and we are as well.

They are lacking some funds to finish. I am not sure of the exact amount but we would like to help supply it. When we go to Nigeria we are taking funds for other commitments we have made to the school and in other areas and we always take extra to put in the right places as the Lord opens doors. In addition to that, we would love to take whatever is needed to finish the school when we go in November.

We also plan to take at least one suitcase and possibly two, loaded with school supplies that can not be purchased easily there. If you would like to help with these projects, please let us know. Whatever you designate for the classrooms or school supplies will be used 100% in those areas. 

I hope you all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by and reading.
