TO GOD BE THE GLORY
Greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ,
Bihar’s (India – North, Khagaria) ministry and school’s services are blessed by the grace of God.
The school’s construction work is in progress. There are 9 class rooms and 2 wash rooms (Girls + Boys) [in use].
In these rooms, students are attending their classes. They are preparing for their CBSE final Exams.
Still, 12 rooms are to be completed to complete the ground floor construction. The rest of the room’s construction should be complete before March end to conduct classes for the junior class students.
Kindly uphold us and our work in your valuable prayers.
