Today we celebrated the successful completion of the term in our school. The children sang songs and danced. We organized a delicious lunch and presented graduation gifts. The gifts included 2 notebooks, a pencil, a sharpener, a toothbrush, paste and soap. It was not in vain that we put hygienic products as a gift, in Africa this is very important. Not even all adults know about its importance and not all keep hygiene. Several posters were prepared on how and when to wash, as well as how to properly brush your teeth. Galina prepared and conducted a detailed lesson on this topic. After the lesson, we immediately proceeded to a festive dinner!
However, it is not complete without adventures, and today we need another miracle. Remember the story of Elisha and the bitter water? About how an entire region suffered from a lack of potable water, and God performed a miracle? We have a very similar history. When I tasted the water, it was clear and looked just perfect, but the taste was bitter-salty. For those who think that salt water is from the ocean, then our well is very far from it and this is really strange. At the same time, local experts conducted a study of the place, and the water should have been normal. Do not rush to get upset. The workers who drilled the well said that this happens, but if you pump water, then fresh water should come out. Now I'm a little confused on how to proceed. A few days ago, I was going to install the final equipment for the extraction and storage of water, and here is such news. We need your prayers and a miracle that only God can do!

Two weeks of drilling work has passed

Written by
It is the second week since we are drilling a well in the village of Maboromokoni. We were a little late, because a large stone got under the ground, which broke the drilling machine and we were waiting for it to be repaired! Literally one of these days we have to get to the water, only a few meters remain! After that, we will begin to build a structure for raising water and storing it!

Let's start digging a well!

Written by
It's no secret that there are problems with water in Africa. Somewhere it does not exist at all, somewhere it is very expensive for the locals. Seeing this, we have been thinking for a long time that it would be good to start building wells with free water. So that everyone can collect the required number of bottles and not worry about how and where to get water for their family! And the other day we decided on a place - this is the settlement of Maboromokoni (Mwangaza), where we will drill the first well! Surprisingly, there is only 1 source of water in this large region. Water is paid and is not always available. Sometimes people go weeks without it. The harvest dies, you can’t wash yourself and it happens that there is nothing to drink. We have already found the point where the water lies and decided on the depth - 140 feet or 42 meters! Let's get to work, let's share the news!

Giving a school uniform

Written by
Today we handed out 15 sets of school uniforms for new students at our second school "Mwangaz Bring Life Academy". The children seemed to be unaware of the very fact that they had been given a new school uniform. They were very serious and tense, but as soon as they started trying on clothes, their faces immediately changed. In a word - the children were just happy. Thank you very much to each of you for the opportunity to give them this joy.

Bible stories booklet for our kids!

Written by
Hallelujah! Now we have a beautifully designed Swahili Bible stories booklet for our kids! The 12-page A5 booklet contains 11 stories with color pictures, 2 coloring pages and a prayer of repentance at the end. The children we work with here usually have no books at all in their homes. And with such a brochure in Swahili, they will be able, firstly, to learn biblical stories, and secondly, to learn and practice reading. Prehistory: We faced difficulty to find a book with biblical stories in Swahili here. Perhaps in Nairobi this is not a problem, but in Malindi, we went around all the bookstores and found nothing. There are biblical stories in English, but the reality is that children in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades do not understand English yet. So we have come up with the idea to create a brochure with stories that we could give children at school and elsewhere. We did it together: -Galina Balde were looking for stories in English, edited them, and composed; -Sheron (Quinter's sister) translated them into Swahili; -Quinter reviewed and edited after Sharon; -Marina found pictures and professionally typeset them; -Albina has found most of the finances so we managed to print the first 30 counts. There is even a coloring on the last page. In fact, the colouring page was added, because we had to either remove one story, or to add one. It was a pity to remove even one story, yet so much work was done. And there was no time left to add a story, so Galina and Marina decided to add a coloring page, although Eva had shared this idea even earlier, when she was consulted on which stories to include in the booklet. The cost of one book turned out to be about $ 1.8. So far we have printed 30 items. But thanks to you, friends, there is an opportunity to print the next edition. Now children and adults who do not understand English can read about Jesus. After all, about 95% of the population in the villages do not speak English.

Constructive works at the school in Furunzi

Written by
A while ago Zhenya, Vlad and Sergej have finished working on the doors at the school in Furunzi. Autoclaving metal for 4 doors wasn't a piece of cake since the stress was weak, but it didn't stop the guys. Now the school can be closed and no school desks or other stuff will be stolen. We thank everyone who support our mission in Africa. God bless you in your good deeds!
