A Proposal by Rashid Luswa
School to be located between Kampala and Entebbe on Entebbe Road
It started during 2000 where overtime, we gathered a total of six young boys into Bethel Village. In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, a big children's home known as Africa Foundation collapsed due to loss of sponsorships from abroad. Bethel took in sixty-five kids from that home.
This work with the kids has been great, yet not without its challenges. God has taught us sacrificial patience, as well as thankfulness to Him even for little things, and to be willing to be broken if He is to use us to help many. This lesson is drawn from John 6 where Jesus takes the fives loaves of bread and the two fish, gave thanks, and then broke the bread and the fish. What followed was a miracle that fed thousands. Late in that same chapter, Jesus says that the bread actually signified His body that He would willingly give to be broken for our salvation.
Bethel Covenant High School
Dr. Henry Krabbendam and I have already secured three acres of property for the school compound. There are an adjacent three acres that if we could secure, would allow us room for athletic field and home sites for teachers. (See site plan)
Practical Application Once started, the Ranch (Bethel Village) would be an integral part of the school. It would serve as a training ground where the kids would see the applications of the classroom theories. The Ranch would also serve as a retreat center for our school kids. It would also serve us with enough food stuffs.
Though we are living in the IT age, yet in many ways, Africa is still in the subsistence, pred-industrial age. The computer still mesmerizes many as the "wise machine." At Bethel Covenant High School we intend to install a great leap forward by introducing a computer lab with sixty computers (one per ten students), as well as introducing students to the Internet.
