good news for our work here…….We have great news about the vocational school!! After some discouraging news about not getting a grant a few months back, lots of prayer, waiting, and some follow up we DID get a different grant to pay for the computer lab!! Jason picked up the check from the Germany embassy in Dar and after coming back to the island found a even better price on the computer equipment than the original estimates had indicated. Yeah!

Jason with the 10 new computers that will soon be put to use

Our team has been busy continuing the building of the school, buying computers, having desks made, and arranging for everything in the computer lab room to be finished by October (the grant stipulates although the entire school will not be up and running then we need to have everything for the computer lab ready to go). We also are starting to plan curriculum, decide class offerings, and looking at all that needs to be done before the school opens…AHHHH! Lots of work ahead but we are so grateful for God’ provision thus far in our work here!
since the last pictures I posted here are some updated ones….
