Year 8

3:50 PM Harts for Africa 1 Comments

We had planned to open a high school in 2012. Two classrooms are built and ready. The Government has been unable to return our paperwork with the required signatures in time for us to open. This has caused quite a stir amongst the people around us with many of them visiting local government offices asking for an explanation.  

I was called along with the School Principal to meet with our local government leader to explain why we have not opened the doors for year 8 in 2012, when we explained all we have done to help the process along, we were assured he will investigate the delay and meet with the community to explain the situation. We trust that the papers will be signed now assuring that we can open a high school for 2013.

Ag projects.

Our agriculture projects are going well. We have 900 chickens ready to sell next week and are currently building 2 additional sheds that will contain 3000 chickens each. We also have 30 goats and this month 2 new kids were born with another 3 goats close to giving birth. These guys are proving to be great lawn mowers with the added bonus of teaching the primary school students how to care for and raise livestock.

We have planted a hectare of maize and hope to harvest more this year than last year.

 

 

2012 New Opportunities.

3:17 PM Harts for Africa 0 Comments

As we enter a new year it’s a great chance to reflect on the achievements of 2011 and set goals for 2012. 2011 was a good year of ministry in Africa, we trained over 200 church leaders, with more than 180 passing the course. They in turn planted 117 new churches from a position of strength. These leaders also saw 330 first time salvations, baptised 750 people in water, and baptised 500 people in the Holy Spirit. This is what ministry is about, the disciples doing the work of the ministry.

In 2012 we are training in 8 locations but expect more leaders as our course is gaining recognition. At every location we held our bible training last year, the leaders want us to continue with them in 2012 promising more students but we have a commitment to strengthen churches in new locations. This is significant as we do not assist any church leaders financially, if God has called them He will provide for them. We help by investing in discipleship, bringing training to the church at a zero cost.

 We are hoping to welcome a new member onto the team this month to assist with the training and to help us prepare new subjects to take back in future years to the locations where we have already held the course.
