WHY A SCHOOL?

When Wendy and I came to Uganda, the last thing on our minds was a school…but if we were honest, everything that God has accomplished here through FNC wasn’t on our radars. We continue to be in awe. We continue to walk entirely by faith…something we have truly learned, living and ministering in the third world. Some of you might be asking, “Does Uganda really need another school? Aren’t there already schools around?” The answer is a bit more complicated than replying with a simple yes or no. Allow me to share with you a few of the facts we have found in the community we minister in… 1. Though some of our used to be Joy Club kids, “attended school”, we found most were extremely under educated. 8 year's up to 13 were not able to perform even the basic of writing skills such as spelling their name or writing the alphabet. 2. Children are desperate for education. So much so that most are willing to go back two and three grades just to get into the FNC Academy where they will actually receive a proper and Christ centered education. 3. Because of the cost and burden to the parent or guardian, about 50 percent of our Joy Club kids failed to attend school on a regular basis. Some had never even enrolled. 4. Most children in our community are malnourished and have limited access to clean drinking water. So, although startng a school was not what we had planned, it became clear that is was God's plan. We learned that sometimes you have to "no" to your plans, hopes and dreams in order to say "yes" to God. "Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." - Ephesians 3:20-21, emphasis added
