Dear Friends,

As the school year draws to a close, we have two schools going through construction improvements. In N’Djamena (Chad), construction of the new multi-purpose building is on pause as we await further funding. The completed building will serve as a chapel hall and several classrooms. In the city of Baraka (DR Congo), our rented facility is overdue for some basic upkeep. We expect the concrete work and storm damage to the perimeter fence to be finished by the end of July.

If the Lord wills, two of our schools (Uvira and Baraka) will have electricity for the first time by the end of the summer. As we add more laptops and office equipment, the need for electricity increases dramatically. However electricity is highly unreliable in both cities: The entire city of Baraka has been without electricity since May due to equipment failure at the power station. The most reliable option is small-scale solar. With your help, we expect to have both schools online soon.

We’re in the final weeks of preparation for our annual Congo Bible Camp, July 22-26. The theme of the week will be “Abraham: Father of the Promise”, and we’ll be using the life and promises of Abraham to draw out Christ-focused truths in Romans 4, Galatians and Hebrews.

Your prayers are coveted.

In Him,

Tim Foster
