Last Friday I got an update on the building of the girl's dormitory in Serenje. For those not familiar with this project Serenje is a rural community in Zambia where we've been involved for a number of years with projects to alleviate the impact of HIV/AIDS. As part of that project we set out to build a dormitory for 100 girls to allow them to safely complete their secondary school education.
The great news is that building is due to be completed by the end of January! Also five people have been shortlisted for the job of the matron who will run the dormitory, with interviews taking place next week. The plan is to have a first group of girls in the dormitory by the end of March, with more girls joining as the inevitable teething problems are dealt with.
Please join me in thanking God for all that has been achieved, be praying for the final phase of construction and that the right person is selected for the job of matron, be praying for the local churches as they work together to get the project completed and for the first group of girls going into the dormitory.
Below are some photos of the almost completed building. Very exciting :)
