The Good Shepherd School in Njeru, Uganda provides a Christian based education and one meal per day to approximately 600 plus children. The school is operated under the leadership of Pastor Henry Ssevviiri, along with a small administrative staff and approximately 13 teachers. The Good Shepherd School has seen recent and rapid growth, from 200 children to over 600 in about 15 months. The school was also rebuilt in 2011; the cost of which was covered by donations. Families who send children to the Good Shepherd School are charged tuition, however there are approximately 110 children who attend school that cannot afford some, or all, of the tuition. These children are perhaps most in need of the meal and education they receive at Good Shepherd. By sending in your donation, you will be helping children such as Christy, pictured here.
While the administrative staff and Pastor Henry seek agriculture projects to help move this school toward self sustainability we ask you to prayerfully consider supporting a Christ like effort to offer hope to the hopeless. By sending in a donation to GSS of $25/month you help the administration of this school reach out to more within this poor area of Uganda who would otherwise be on the streets without any supervision as their single parent or relative looks for food to survive. The enrollment would have reached upwards to 700 but the administrative staff had to say no because they don’t have the monthly resources to feed all the children and offer the quality education standards expected by the Ministry of Education.
You can help by sending a gift through our donation button and designating the funds to Good Shepherd School. We will gather the funds and forward them to the school administrative purser who adds these funds to the collected school fees and uses this pool of resources to cover all the priorities of feeding and educating the whole student body.
A special thank you to those who have and will help with this investment of Christ centered education!
Harare, Zimbabwe is where we joined a team of Pastor’s, Ministry Leaders and Theological Leaders of the Faith to conduct a Pastor’s Encouragement Conference for some 85 plus leaders and administrative staff. God gave us great favor and an opportunity of a life time for me to partner with such leaders of our faith; Dr. Phil Robertson (former President of Mid Western Seminary), Pastor Norman Schaeffer of Open Baptist Church, Gaborone, Botswana (this conference is a beginning fulfillment of God’s vision in Norman’s Life and Ministry.) Rev. Scott Shipes the children’s Ministry Director for Botswana, Pastor John Crocker – missions pastor of Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Al. Rev. Larry Wright the President of TIME Ministries Int., Clyde Watts – Pepsi City Director – Oklahoma City, OK. who lead our Sports ministry and outreach teams. What a joy to work together with great gifts to the body of Christ with a common goal of building the Kingdom of God! We have already committed September for 2013 to return with multiple venues to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Pastor John Crocker and Rev. Larry Wright will partner to bring teams and resources to this area to train and equip the leaders in the Body of Christ throughout several areas of Zimbabwe for maximum kingdom impact. We have established significant relationships among leaders that we met as the result of our Partnership with OBC-Pastor Norman Schaeffer. Now we see many doors being opened before us for the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please pray for us as we begin to fill 2013 and 2014 schedule, based on priorities of ministry. CTA is beginning to restructure so we can have God sized impact in the future within several African Communities. Pray that we may increase our staff with a technical Director, Sports Director and office staff in Kampala, Uganda soon! I want to thank my personal friend and Mission Pastor Jeff Sukup from OBC, Gaborone, Botswana. Blessings! Rev. Ken Galyean
