Fair Price Shop and Resturant

The shop in the village is vital as it’s about 20km to the nearest shop. At the shop they sell a wide range of goods ranging from food, bike tires, phone credit, oil and washing products. This is also used in part of church planting and shows other potential church planters how you can serve your community. In the time of trouble in 2014 the shop was a place where people could buy and not risk going into city. The local shop is vital part of village life and many people gather and chat, it gives the village a real sense of community.

Church Planter Training

Boureima has been training 18 Fulani people (5 couples and 8 singles ) in   the Church Planting programme. The Training is for three months from January to the  first week in April. Boureima has been teaching on how to recognise the person of peace — Luke 10 where Jesus sent out the 72.

There are 5 characteristics  in the person of peace

  • Chosen by God
  • Thirsty for the Word of God
  • They welcome you
  • They are not yet a believer
  • They Open doors to his family  — Unless you find that person you may miss the whole process of making disciples in that village.  April 2015

School

DSCF2501IMG_2186DSCF2467DSCF3237School in the  Jam Tann Centre (2015) the school has 70 places that are all taken. We would like to expand the school and offer more people in the village an education. This is a new project as the demand was there and we are trying our hardest to meet it. the school has one paid teacher who teaches 70 children.

The primary school at Jam Tan has recently finished for the school year. All the students passed to the next level! We have appreciated the work of the teacher, who comes from the village. He has not been trained as a teacher, so we are planning to sponsor his teacher training this coming academic year.

We thank God for the provision of lunch for the schoolchildren and funds for the teacher’s salary through a gift from Tonbridge Baptist Church.  Please pray for God to provide for a school building. We have been teaching in the large multi-purpose hall for two years now, but next school, year we will need three or more purpose built classrooms.
