One year ago this week, we re-opened the school in Boma. After 10 months of inactivity due to the conflict of 2013, God granted us the opportunity to restart the Boma Project and to re-engage the community. Lest we forget, here are just a few of the accomplishments:
- The school re-opened with 50 students and three teachers. Currently, there are over 160 students and 6 teachers.
- An agricultural program was implemented to help provide food for the staff and students. Currently, we have doubled the cultivated ground to 10 acres and are ready to plant corn, beans and other vegetables.
- Four water wells were repaired with a solar powered water pump added to one well. These wells provide clean drinking water for the people in Jonglei and Kaywa villages.
- Three local pastors have emerged as leaders of the church and they are involved in weekly training with SEA Partners staff.
- The road to Upper Boma has been repaired and two truck loads of construction materials have arrived in Boma. These materials will be used to repair the classrooms and storage container as well as to build 60 new desks for the children.
Thank you so much for your generous support and prayers. God has blessed the efforts in Boma and we look forward to another great year.

The timing of this trip is perfect and we look forward to seeing what the Lord will do through these men. Please pray for God’s protection and guidance as they serve Him in Boma.
We have seen much progress this year; God has given us this challenge and many of you have prayed and supported us throughout. We have been blessed to receive funding for repairing the classrooms, but monthly support for our staff and regular expenses remains below our needs. Please prayerfully consider how you can get involved to provide support for this ministry.
Thank you and God bless you;
