In January, 2013, a hard-working group of eight arrived in January and accomplished much: they poured a large sports platform by hand, sewed curtains for classrooms and offices, and taught from Scripture. Strong Tower Christian School began its new school year in March, 2013 with 190 students. We have not been able to build classrooms for over a year now and a lack of space will soon become a major issue if we are to continue adding a new class each year.
Our school year ends in mid-December and our hope and need is to immediately start work on a permanent roof for our brick building and add a second floor, providing two additional classrooms and a teacher work room. The construction is steel reinforced concrete and brick, similar in appearance and structure to the existing duplex across the lot. There will be a need for electricians, plumbers, tile setters, carpenters and painters as well as support staff for cooking and cleaning, and, of course, funding. You can help by praying, volunteering, and sending financial gifts. Volunteers can arrange to come by themselves or in teams. All volunteers need to fill out the applications form at: http://www.morningstarperu.org/volunteers.html Pray about how the Lord would have you to be involved in this project.
