We recently had two small teams travel to Kenya to serve and work on projects.
One group was focused on building more desks for the Lower Oloosekin school:
After drilling a clean water well in the Lower Oloosekin area in late 2020, Montana on a Mission began our first school improvement program at the small school near the well. The school was only a couple of years old at the time and was comprised of about 40 children from the area who had never had the chance to attend school. When a new school opens, they almost always begin with the pre-school level and add a grade each year as the children progress. In many cases pre-school is made up of kids from 5 – 9 years old. This was the case at Lower Olooskin school. Like most small rural schools in Kenya, the students sat a on the dirt floor in a small one room building.
In 2021 a small team from Montana built desks at the school and worked with the teachers to acquire curriculum for preschool through 1st grade. Over the past year and a half, we have been working with the school to build 2 additional classrooms, latrines, hand washing stations and provided more curriculum, teachers desks and supplies. We were able to visit and build more desks earlier this month and are so happy to report that the students and teachers are thriving!
The current school year is coming to an end at the end of November and the next scholastic year begins in January. Montana on a Mission is currently working with the teachers and our Kenya manager to implement a school lunch program for the new school year. We are so thankful to have the opportunity to offer these life changing improvements to the children in the area. This is only possible with your financial and prayer support. Please consider making a contribution to Montana on a Mission and change a child’s future!
The second group, our team of three ladies was able to gather with several groups of women, in their communities, around Montana on a Mission’s clean water wells and have conversations about faith, grace, love and life. There were smiles, laughs, some tears, hug and an unexpected downpour! We all learned so much and grew in our faith and the Hope we have in Jesus.
What an honor and a blessing to meet with ladies seeking to grow their faith and be able to share the Gospel in the Maasai language through SD memory cards they can install in the simple phones they carry.
“So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
It is amazing to see the ways God is moving in these impoverished areas. Montana on a Mission now has 15 water project areas with 8 of those also providing clean water to schools that did not have access to clean water before the projects. More than 30,000 people have access to clean water for the first time and are able to enjoy improved health and opportunities for education, hygiene training, learning more about the Love of Christ and living with a hope for the future.
All of this is because of you, our generous donors!
Once again, thank you so much for ministering with Montana on a Mission by sharing your blessings and the love of Christ with the world!
