Watching The New Building Go Up! Yay!

We have received good news in the last few days. The new building at GoodNews Christian School is underway. You may remember I posted a picture of the foundation and slab from when we were in Nigeria in December.

Here it was as we saw it.

We left a little money for materials when we were there in December and sent a little more in February when we provided resources to complete the construction of the new sanctuary at the church branch.

In early March we were able to send a good amount specifically toward the school building construction and I am so happy to see these pictures of the progress. The first floor structure is up and it looks like they are preparing to pour the floor for the second story.

I would love to be there smack dab in the middle of it, but there is not much I could do but watch.😁 I sure would like to watch and cheer them on! I am limited by distance, knowledge and physical ability.

I have come to the conclusion that it is not my responsibility to pour the concrete or build the walls but to do my best to find and supply the resources for them. I can do that and I love to do it. 

For many years we could not wire money to Nigeria with any reliability at all. I refused to take a huge chance on loss so we waited until we or someone we knew was traveling to Nigeria. That often delayed the delivery of the funds way too long.

For the last couple of years, we have been using a service that has been safe and quick. We have not had one problem. There is a fee but it is the same no matter what the amount. The fee is not insignificant, so I try to send as much as possible each time.

Boggs Family Ministries ALWAYS covers the fee so any money sent through us to help on a Mission project goes directly to the project intended without one cent being diverted for expenses of any kind.

By God's grace, we will try to send more in mid to late April. We believe in the ministry and goals of the GoodNews School and we are excited to be a small part of it.

Thank You for reading today. Tomorrow is A Word For Wednesday.

Good News For GoodNews Christian School

I am happy and thankful to report to you that we were able to send a good amount toward the construction of the new classroom building at GoodNews Christian School in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria early this week. It takes a few days to process and we are awaiting confirmation that it was received.

We are incredibly thankful that we are blessed to be able to partner with Bro. Shobanke and our friends in Nigeria to assist in the education of over two hundred children. Sis Rebecca, Sis Ruth, Bro. Samuel and their staff are doing an amazing job for the precious children.

We love the school and we love doing everything we can to support their work. We were there for the Christmas program in December and loved every moment of the day.

Goodnews Christian School is touching lives that we could never reach and the joy on the children's faces and the happiness in their voices are testimonies of God's work in their lives. We soak up their love each time we are there with them.

Our plan is to send more toward building the desperately needed classroom building in early April as God provides. I will post pictures of the progress as soon as I receive them.

I hope you have a super great day.
