Just had a wonderful weekend at CCC Midland, Michigan. We received an offering of $10,000 towards the first married JBI student house. It was an overwhelmingly generous gift, an amount we are not used to receiving. We are excited and I can hardly wait to start building.
Phase 1 of the project will include 4 small houses which we estimate to cost $15,000 each. We have been approved to raise $60,000 (4 houses). We now have enough for one house!
To the left is a preliminary floor plan of the house, small living room, 2 bedrooms and a private bath.
There is no kitchen as we will eventually build a community kitchen and dining hall.
1. Why do we need to provide this kind of housing?
Vanuatu is an island country and our Bible school students are usually from outer islands. Married students have to leave their wife and children on another island while they come and study.
Our students have few resources. They cannot afford to bring their families to town and rent a house.
We would love for them to bring their families but our current campus only has 3 studios for married couples.
You can imagine the difficulties this family separation can bring. Besides, we want to train wives to be partners with their husbands in ministry.
Will you partner with us also? Any amount will help us greatly towards building the next student house.
