“The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, and a good report makes the bones healthy.”
Proverbs 15:30 NKJV
We are grateful to report that African Moons partners gave $100,000 for the new dormitory project in 2018. Almost one-third of the $350,000 is in the bank.
The college is bulging at the seams with students preparing to take the Good News to their countrymen and beyond. When this new dormitory is completed another 240 students will have proper beds, showers, toilets and accommodations.
Northern Bible College, aka Arusha Bible College, has made great strides since we launched African Moons. We honor God and our partners who have prayed and generously given to this vision.
Bruton Dormitory – completed and dedicated in 2015.
Computer Lab – a state-of-the-art Computer Lab installed in 2017. Peter Elibarki Ngowi, is now on faculty as a full-time Computer Lab instructor and technician. Students have access to current technology to research extensive Bible resources on the internet.
Kitchen upgraded – meals for the students are no longer being cooked over wood fires. You made it possible to purchase a propane stove for the college kitchen.
Scholarships – Student tuitions provided by our partners.
The critical need now is to begin construction on the Phase II Dormitory project that will accommodate 240 students. Presently there are many students still living in stable like conditions.
William Geter, Jr., Project Manager, tells us we can begin construction as soon as we have $200,000 in the project construction account. Today, we have $100,000. With an additional $100,000 construction begins.
Total Construction Cost of Dormitory $350,000
Funds raised to date $100,000
Needed to begin construction $100,000
Balance to complete after construction begins $150,000
We can reach this goal by asking God to provide
ONE HUNDRED DONORS giving: $1000 = $100,000
God knows how He is going to meet this need. Our faith is in HIM and His people.
KIDNAPPED TANZANIAN CHILDREN FOUND MUTILATED FOR WITCHCRAFT
Recently, horrific news from Southern Tanzania reached us that children were kidnapped & atrocities committed.
Authorities are said to suspect that witchcraft motivated the horrors that were inflicted upon the children. Some witch doctors in the area where the children were killed claim that by obtaining some body parts, people can attract money and good fortune. The children went missing while their parents sold food at the market, the BBC said.
The Njombe District Commissioner, Ruth Msafiri said, “This is all about superstitious beliefs and many believe they will get help from witchcraft.”
The Gospel is the only remedy to combat and conquer the deception of witchcraft & the lies of Satan to destroy. Prepared and educated ministers of the Gospel are the hope to stand against evil and offer people the “Good News” that Jesus is the answer!
We ask that you prayerfully ask God to show you how you may participate to accomplish the need of the funds to break ground and begin construction. Again, a total of $100,000 is needed to begin construction.
May God’s blessings continue to meet your every need. He is faithful and and together we can work to reach Tanzania for Jesus!
