Zion Mission School New Year


The children have returned from holiday and they are excited to start school mostly so they can see their friends from town that come to Zion for school.  It is also exciting for us to collect many hugs and see so many smiles of joy. 

The school day always starts with prayer and every Monday there is 7am assembly with singing, prayer and a devotion.  The children are so good as they stand on the basketball court for 30 or more minutes.

House in Town


We continue to listen to God’s direction for the way forward for Zion.  This year we decided to rent a house in town for the youngest girls transitioning from living at Zion to going out to secondary school (grade 8).  In the past, the children have lived in the hostel.  In the past the children have been older going out because they started school later.  Now the children going from Zion Mission Primary School to Secondary School are younger.  So, in order to try to provide more supervision and have a house mother availabe to advise the children, we rented a house in town for 4 girls to live with a house mother.  They commute back and forth to the school.

Please pray with us that these children are lights for Christ in their villages and at school and in the community.
