November Update

Calvine tells us that all is well at Ark Quest, and he thanks all those who support Ark Quest and pray for the school.

Recently the school held a graduation day for the preschool children who have just completed their first 3 years at Ark Quest, and will start in Lower Primary next year. It was such a great occasion attended by their parents and graced by the regional Early Childhood Development Officer. 

As the Year 8 candidates are preparing for exams, a prayer day was held at the local church to pray for them. They will be sitting the final exams in the current weeks. These exams are crucial, as they will determine which secondary schools the students will gain entry to next year. It is an emotional for the staff as they farewell students whose season at Ark Quest has come to an end. Some of the students are well known to members of Bethlehem College service teams who have visited Ark Quest. Victor Atamba has been at Ark Quest since it’s inception, Nipha Mmboga is remembered for walking long distances in order to attend school, and Whitney Iramwenya, Christopher Mmata’s niece.  Altogether 17 students will be graduating from Ark Quest this year.

Calvine asks that you continue to pray for these young candidates as they sit their national exams. Let’s pray for their good health and great performance.

 

October Update: Letter from Calvine

Recently we received following news from Calvine.

Greetings from the Ark Quest Education Centre family. We trust that you are all doing well. Thank you so much for all your prayers and support of Ark Quest Education Centre. We have recently been blessed by Morgan School, U.K, who gifted us a white heifer, which we named Morgan (pictured above). She is due to calve later in the year, hopefully in the first week of December. Our thanks to Sarah Jackson, who organised the school’s fund raising for us. Indeed this is a great boost to the dairy project.

We are well on our way towards achieving our target of self-sustainability through the finances our dairy herd produces. What a great blessing this will be. The village school is doing well. We are now in our final term of the year. Our candidates are due to start their final exams later next month. The timetables of the Year Eight exams are now out. Please remember to pray for the candidates. Also noteworthy is that our foundation students, who are now in Form Four at secondary school, will sit their exams next month. We continue to pray for their success as well. Thank you once again for the great work and sacrifice always.

God bless you always.

Thanks to a generous donation, the school has been able to purchase a much-needed chaff-cutter. This machine will simplify the preparation of animal food. Animal fodder is growing well on the village  farm, ensuring that there is ample supply for the future. This is a great blessing, considering the famine that is currently affecting parts of Kenya.
