Racefield News: Prayers and Progress

News from Racefield School:

Nov 27th:

Thank you so much for your continued prayers. The KCPE exercise [national testing for 8th graders] ended successfully, we are now thanking God for the wonderful results. The results came out and we managed to score the highest 393 marks and the lowest 352 marks with a m/s of 375.13 [out of 500.] This was an excellent performance, we were ranked 2nd in our entire county, and position 1 in Mwingi large [area], thanks again for your prayers and the Crossing Church. Our son Mark was among them and he scored 388 marks out of 500, this will get him a good national school. Peter our 1st born will also be doing his 2nd year in college next year.
Kindly continue praying for us, because it has also been confirmed by our government that the new curriculum of education will start rolling from January next year which requires us to have the facility for the junior secondary school that is class 7, 8 , & 9. Failure to which the school will end at grade 6 and parents will b required to transfer their children to schools which can cater for those classes. It’s a big challenge to us among other needs but we keep trusting God.
The solar system and the computers are perfectly working, thank you so much for your partnership, love and concern towards this ministry, God bless you all.
Give our best regards to The Crossing Church.
Yours in the service of the little ones.
For Racefield children’s Ministry.
Sammy & Felistus

Involuntarily, I felt my inner heart pipe up: “Seriously?” Surely no
