Tuesday was a great day for the Mwanza Bible College.
The school has had to ration food for the students at the MBC since the term began six weeks ago; the students have been receiving one meal a day for several weeks now. In addition, they have had no meat this term; the situation was becoming serious.
We were speaking with some of our family members on the Jarvis side and they were very concerned about the food situation at the school. They decided to do something about it; in less than three days they raised $1,350. We were able to buy the largest freezer available in Mwanza and we delivered during chapel on Tuesday.
The students erupted into cheers and praise as the new industrial size freezer was carried into the chapel. As the cheering subsided, Tim told them that the following day we would be buying a large cow and delivering it to the school for their first meal with meat for this term. The remainder would be placed in their new freezer. There were also bags of sugar, flour, oil and other items to provide meals for the students.
The students stood to their feet and rejoiced and thanked God for the miracle of the freezer and for the cow that would be arriving the next day.
A sad day for the cow but a blessing for the MBC.
