The most frequently used phrase I heard this past week during the Bible School Session was “Tuko nyumbani” — “We are at home!”. The Kenya Free Methodist Modular Bible School has seen many homes in the many years since it began in 1996. Most recently the Bible School sessions were hosted at the Light and Life Free Methodist Academy (Primary School) in Kericho.
The search for land began 6 years ago. Funds were being raised and a site was located but when money was available to make the purchase the land had already been sold. The search began again and this time with success, 3 1/2 acres were bought 5 years ago on the opposite side of the river from where we had first tried.
Many people have been involved in our getting us to where we are today — a building, a start to the building Springs of Hope College. Thanks to all — Canadians and Kenyans alike.
Students eager to make the school their own” requested hoes and began to clear the grass. Others took to pumping water from the well in an effort to rid it of recent contaminants. We are home they said. Pray for Springs of Hope – We have only just begun and we are excited to see what God has for us in the future.
