Progress of our School project in Donni
The construction of building 5 new classrooms in Donni village is going on very well. We can say that we have come half way to complete the work. This project is very important that it will benefits 326 students to get access of education in the village. It also creates job opportunity for more than 15 people including those youths who produce bricks. We thank God for this great provision.
We would also like to thank you so much PCC/Pantano Christian Church/ for partnering with us in this great project.

Bridges training in Dembidollo & Jimma Nunu
We are keep doing conducting Bridges training aggressively even in this New Year. One of our Master trainers Pastor Tesfaye Shibiru went the western part of Ethiopia in place called Dembidollo and Jimma Nunu. He trained more 150 Church leaders in both villages.
God is doing great things in that region and the number of churches planted in the region reaches to 90. The Bridges training takes the Lion share in advancing the kingdom of God in the region.

Leadership development program
One of our strategies to accelerate the movement is to develop and empower our leaders. Leadership development is one of our programs to equip our leaders in various Biblical leadership skills and character. This is a one-year program and the leaders come to the training center in every three months and train for five days.
Last year we have trained 20 selected and influential leaders and send them back to their respective areas to multiply others. We have also started the 2nd round group in this year. Another 20 leaders from various regions of the country have come and attended the training. It was an impactful program and we have seen that God is using these leaders amazingly to transform their community.
