Together we have prayed and given sacrificially to see the dormitory at the Arusha Bible College built. Physically, it is 6000 square feet and will sleep 88 students.
It required three weeks in Arusha to get the final construction team assembled and details worked out. William Geter, Jr. and I spent hours on video chats discussing issues that cropped up seemingly daily. But through God’s guidance and favor, the final steps of construction are underway.
We are also preparing for the final costs of construction and materials. Last month I told you about Tanga General, the building supplier we work with who offered to extend credit for the remaining materials needed to finish the building. Our project manager, William Geter, Jr. estimated that these materials; electrical, cement and other materials would cost approximately $15,000.00. As of today we have raised $4500.00.
Tanga General expects payment when I return to cross check the purchases and sign off with the contractor which will be later in July.
Please continue to pray for God to speak to hearts as I call upon donors. If you can help with the additional needs, please help us meet this goal.
But always remember that your continued support is necessary for us to meet the monthly obligations of African Moons. Our monthly partners enable us to do the ministry of African Moons.
When we began this project, February 12, 2012, in the early morning, God gave us this promise.
“BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS AND ACT; DO NOT FEAR NOR BE DISMAYED, FOR THE LORD GOD IS WITH YOU. HE WILL NOT FAIL YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU UNTIL ALL THE WORK FOR THE SERVICE OF THE HOUSE OF THE LORD IS FINISHED.” I Chronicles 28:20
We are confident and we will see the fulfillment of this promise. God does not lie. Together we honor God with our faith. God is pleased and we minister to Him when we trust Him.
Tanzania for Jesus!
