Karibu Kenya! (Welcome to Kenya!)
For the past 4 years LBC has faithfully financially supported Ebenezer Jr. Academy (now named Clear View Jr. Academy) located in Kenya. Jeremy Schwinger visited the school a couple years ago. In July Lance, Katelyn and Asher Milligan were able to visit the school for a second time. God has graciously blessed this Christian school!
The school has grown from 60 students to 167 students in the last few years. Also, one grade has been added each year; now it’s up to Grade 7. New classrooms have been built. Toilets have been added. Breakfast and lunch are served every day. Unique field trip experiences are offered. All teachers have health insurance and contribute to a 401k (which is a huge deal!) There are 7 committed teachers that desire each student that comes from a poverty stricken village to have a solid education and know the love of Jesus!
We were able to take with us Answers in Genesis material for each grade, so the teachers can have solid Christian education material to teach during their religion class twice a week. We walked the teachers through how to navigate the material and lesson plan, and then we taught a couple lessons to each grade so the teachers could see it in action. The newly formed school board, the teachers, and Thomas who started the school are extremely grateful for the faithful support of LBC! There are moments it’s tough to make ends meet, but it helps to know LBC will come through. God has instilled a big vision for this school in Thomas and other leaders. God has brought them thus far!
Thank you for taking part in that vision. Please remember Clear View in your prayers as these children receive Christ centered education (which is rare for this primarily Muslim area). And if you wish to contribute financially you can do so by marking your tithing envelope “Kenya School”. If you want to know more about Clear View and the ministry taking place feel free to talk to Lance and Katelyn Milligan. Thank you church!
