I have been the secretary at Sakeji Mission School since 2004. Sakeji is a boarding school so we have the children with us for three months at a time, providing constant care and support. While we seek to provide a good education to the students so they can continue with a good foundation we also focus on God’s word in many areas each day.
We accept new students in grades 1-5 but the school continues to grade 9 with a core group. Some children remain with us for the nine years, some leave after grade seven (when they write a national exam), others leave partway through for a variety of reasons. We are grateful to the Lord for whatever opportunities we have to impact the children and their families for Christ.
There are many opportunities in the area as well to do outreaches – Sunday school, Bible studies, and reading classes to name a few.
Currently we would like to have more qualified teachers to take on classroom responsibilities as those of us not qualified are filling in as needed.
I am also involved with helping to distribute literature in Lunda, the local language. Sadly I am not able to give this the focus that is required to increase/improve as I am busy with other duties at the school.
