You made Operation Lift: Burundi a HUGE SUCCESS. We exceeded the goal – Discovery School is moving forward with the septic system and the excess will go to a much-needed school bus || Joy gave me this scarf when I visited Burundi in 2011. I gave away almost everything, but I kept this. Africa will always be on my heart. Thank you for your kindness 💗, ning || THANK YOU for being a part of building Burundi’s future. Your generosity in standing with us is overwhelming. – Jesse and Joy Johnson
PS. Individual thank you’s to the people I have addresses for are forthcoming – I appreciate your patience as I’ve hit another physical rough patch. I know I say that ALL THE TIME, but that’s how the cookie crumbles. I’m grateful to have a Team to help me.
PPS. When I visited Burundi in 2011, Discovery School and the work in general were no where NEAR this level of development. It’s what we talked about in the ideal vision state. Of course, the ideal has not been obtained yet, but it was SHOCKING to me to see the reality being built – our technically, poured – check out these guys pouring a slab bucket by bucket. PTL. I explained to my people (Hi, Matt!!) that “PTL” is a nerdy Christianese acronym for “Praise the Lord.” But seriously? This is not a drill. It’s happening. And it’s changing lives on a scale that has the potential to shape a nation. Thank you for being a part of this.
