The children’s program began in May 2017. We started by sponsoring 23 children from Apapai village. At the same time we began a Saturday Bible program, but decided to open the Bible class to other children in the village rather than keeping it to just the sponsored ones. When we began, this area was just coming out of a drought which had destroyed many of the crops for two years in a row. Most of the new crops had not been harvested yet; so many people in the villages were experiencing famine. Because of this, we decided to feed the children who came to the Bible program breakfast and lunch. Very quickly the program grew until we could no longer fit all the children into the small, thatched-roof Baptist church where we held the Bible class. The village came together a couple months ago to build us a new, bigger building, so hopefully that will be done soon.
