Mako's Friday NHA School Report

Greetings to you all from NHA School Kabala.

We, as a school, continue to thank God for His loving kindness and protection through out this academic year.

And to all our dear friends and supporters, we thank you for the continued help and prayers which have seen us as a school having a very successful school year.

We also want to thank God for the healing of our sick loved ones. The storm of illness we received recently in Sierra Leone has given way to brighter skies and rainbows.

Sheaku, the kid with the swollen belly with worms is back in school and doing fine.

Mammy Fatu our mother is doing fine, and I was happy to know that James wife Kadijah is also making great improvement and will be released from the hospital.

We want to give God the praise for His healing power and thank you all for the endless prayers.

We have 21 days left in this school calander, as school will close down on the 9th of July.

Today marks the end of our final exams at school. Through out the week, the children at NHA Kabala School were busy writing there exams.

This exam is very important as this will see the children promoted to a new class. A total number of 196 children took to the exams not counting the nursery children who are too young to write an exam on their own.

We are now working on the report cards for the children. We have to give these report cards to the parents of these children for them to see what their children have been doing academically through out the school year.

We want to remember you in prayers our dear supporters, Mother and father, Mama Vicki and Father Seraphim on your visit to California. We ask them to send our greetings to our NHA family in California, especially our Archbishop Provence. As a school we believe our prayers are all you need and all we can offer. The good Lord is with you.

As a school we want to say ‘ Tenki’ (thank you) to all our dear friends and supporters for all the help and prayers.

We love you all as a school and as one big family.
