The plan to have a Computer Lab was in mind when our partners gave to install the Internet Tower several years ago. Today this plan is a reality.
Because of our partners’ generosity, Phase I of this project included purchasing 7 desktops and a new printer. We installed a computer in the Library and one for the Administrative Assistant to Principal Kingu. Five computers were installed in the Computer Lab which is wired for 12 total. Only 7 more desktops are needed to complete the Lab.
Mohammed, the Dell tech assigned to oversee the installation, worked diligently to install the computers and new printer. The computers have Windows 10, Microsoft 365, internet access, and remote printing to the network printer.
Students and techs erupted in joy as they stood and watched the desktops light up and access the Internet. The first search entered was to find resources for the Gospel of John. Over 900,000 sites surfaced in less than a second! This puts the Northern Bible College in a whole new category by providing the students another tool to prepare and study for the ministry.
Shalom Center Orphanage – Our partners made it possible to purchase a month’s supply of rice, cooking oil and wood for the stove. This means the children will have more than just beans to eat this month. Dental Hygiene Kits were also donated for each child along with toys in each kit. During my visit with Director Golden, I found out that 7 secondary students were not going to begin the new school year, July 3, because they did not have the school fees needed to enroll. Tanzania provides free education until 6th grade so when a student is ready to enter 7th grade and up, school fees are privately paid. God’s people again responded. Funds came in and I was able to give $1000 to cover the first half of the school year for all 7 students. Another $1000 will be due in a few months but we know God will provide.
Your giving empowers African Moons. We are able to impact the Bible College students, school children, orphans and all others connected because you give. DON’T STOP GIVING! DON’T STOP PRAYING! God has allowed us to partner together for such a time as this.
We are experiencing the greatest time of our entire lives. Who would have thought His plans included the opportunities we are involved in today? Because of you we can go and do.
Tanzania for Jesus!
