Zambia experienced a one and a half month drought at the beginning of the rainy season. Crops that needed to be planted mid-November have been planted a the end of December. We are grateful that the rains have set in well but are concerned that if these rains do not continue for later than usual, we could still see massive crop failure throughout the nation. Please pray for an extension to our rainy season.

Pray for financial stability for the MCO schools. Pray that there will be consistent sponsorship and donations and that parents will have enough to keep their school payments up to date.

Pray that God will grant provision and wisdom to the schools on being more self-sustaining. Pray also for solutions to the current challenges.

Please pray that their intentions will translate into actions.
