1.- Our Annual General Assembly Meeting Went well
God has given us great time in our annual general assembly meeting in this Passed month. We heard very encouraging and inspiring stories and reports from our leaders who have come from various regions of the country. Thousands of people have come to the Lord and are being discipled and hundreds of new churches have been planted even during this Covid-19 season through home gatherings.
We worshiped and thanked God for what He has done through our ministry. We also prayed for all our partners who have shown us their love and supported us in this difficult and challenging time.
We discussed on the effect of the pandemic in our churches and formulated and gave our leaders strategic directions how to do ministry after the pandemic. And finally we have concluded our meeting by partaking holy communion in one accord and with great joy.
I take this opportunity to thank all our brave leaders who have been sacrificing all they have for the kingdom of God and all our partners who have been praying for us and showed their love and solidarity during this crisis.

2. Working on Preparing Strategic Plan for all our School Projects
We do have 15 schools all over the country with the total number of 6,150 students. All our schools have been working independently in their own communities. We feel like this is the time to bring them together and create a coordination effort and Synergy to enhance their performance and impact in the entire nation by helping them to share their resources, information, best practices and the like.
In order to do that we have established a team to do a survey and assessment of the activities of our schools and will come up with good strategic planning.
I am leading the team and all team members are doing great in playing their role. This team is composed of various department of our churches & ministry areas and even from our Relief and Development Association.
So far we have had three meetings and have designed our work and set directions. Hopefully we will produce a good and workable Strategic plan document that will help all our schools to do their work in a better way by providing quality, Christian value based Education for our Orphans and vulnerable children.

3.- Consultation meeting with our regional leaders
We do have 8 regional leaders in 8 regions of the country. Our leaders are helping us to facilitate our ministry to be reachable to our grass root church planters and leaders.
I had a wonderful time with them to hear their reports and stories, encouraging one another, plan together for next year and prayed for them.
I thank God for those incredible leaders who are fighting the good fight regardless. Pray for them as they continue serving God and His people.
Our Regional Leaders
I would like to share our prayer request with you to pray about:
• Pray for our leaders, regional coordinators and local missionaries that may God would continue provide us the necessary resources to organize more training meetings for them in the future so that they will be equipped more to do the work of the ministry never like before.
• To continue praying for our school projects that may God would enable us to do more for our students and communities.
• Continue to pray for our animal projects to continue impacting the lives of our orphans through this project.
