Caring for Vulnerable Children - August 2013 Update

Caring for Vulnerable Children August 2013 update.jpg

Dear Friends,

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus. I write to express our gratitude for the support The Outreach Foundation gave us in finishing the boys’ dormitory at Kamwenge Secondary and Vocational School (KSVS). This is truly a fulfillment of the mission of The Outreach Foundation in an area as unreached as Kamwenge.

Martin, the student mentioned in our last news update from South Sudan, continues to do well. His goal is to study hard then return home to Malindi and serve his community. He is now involved in Christian leadership on the Scripture Union committee. I believe this builds leadership capacity in him for the work that awaits him at home.

We have had several students graduate from the vocational wing in carpentry/joinery and brick laying/concrete. We are glad to see them putting the skills they have acquired to use both to earn a living and to serve their community. We also have several students who graduated from the knitting and tailoring class and are also now working in their communities.

Our student population has grown. We welcomed our second group of University students this year with great joy. We recently held our sixth annual school conference which included some extensive evangelism sessions. Many students and teachers came forward to receive Christ. Surely God is at work in this school.

Another piece of good news is that KSVS students excelled in sports competitions this year. Our teams won regional championships and even competed at the national level. We give glory to God. It was inspirational to share the good news of Jesus with audiences at our sporting events.

We are grateful for your continued partnership with us in this work.

Blessings to you,

Rev. Canon John Mulindabigwi
