Zambia (MNN) — Grace Ministries International has seen an answer to prayer in Zambia. Last month, they feared the government might shut down their schools due to what they called a "lack of proper facilities."
However, GMI was able to finish the two classrooms they had begun constructing, and the rooms are now in use.
Because of the extra space, GMI has been able to expand their education to grade eight. Not only did the government not shut them down, they helped provide teachers to teach grade eight.
God has blessed their ministry even more, as their April prayer letter said: "We also received books, and we have been promised money for the repairs of windows and doors at the school."
With these new rooms and resources, GMI is able to reach even more children in the area–many of whom are HIV/AIDS orphans and have little hope for their future. As these children are educated, they also hear about the hope Christ offers them and how He has their future in His hands.
As the full-time missionaries Tim and Debbe Meier continue to minister in the area, they still need more teachers and supplies.
