New Year Greetings to all,
I hope you have had a good start of 2015 and that you are full of expectations of the wonderful things the Lord has planned for you in this year. Here at CCBC we had a wonderful entry into the year with four hundred youths spending the whole night of 31st December in the church praising the Lord for 2014 and praying for God's guidance in 2015.
However on 3rd January I received a phone call in the morning informing me that the rain storm had destroyed some buildings at Adziwa, our project for orphans and vulnerable children. When I got there I was shocked with the level of destruction that I saw. Three of the four school blocks had their roofs blown off. Three homes of the guardians had their roofs completely blown off. The shelter where guardians hold their weekly meetings had also been destroyed. Many guardians homes had suffered all kinds of damages.
Our preliminary estimates show that we will need at least $11,000 to put the roofs back. After putting the roofs back then we will have to do the painting and repairing the other damages that have been made to the walls. So we at this point do not know the full cost of bringing the school back to what it was. As a result of roofs being blown off, all the books, stationery and furniture in the school were also destroyed.
I am sharing all this with you so that you may know what has happened to us but also to solicit prayer support from you. The school teachers and the headmaster in particular feel very disheartened with what has happened. Pray also that the Lord will give us the financial and material support we need to repair the damage to the school and guardian homes.
