vision. knowledge. integrity.

"Where there is no vision, the people perish." - Proverbs 29:18

"Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge
without integrity is dangerous and dreadful."
Samuel Johnson

I know that I have shared with you the above verse, but I wanted to show you the "almost finished" education center that has been built in the Kissayhip Village where we (meaning the B2B staff) spend most of our days ministering. This verse is still true for our team and it is the main heart for these Rukuba people.

We want them to gain a vision of something bigger than themselves. We believe this can begin to happen as they begin to gain knowledge and the basic understanding of using the gift of learning that God has given us all as humans. BUT, as the quote from Samuel Johnson communicates, it is not just knowledge, but a life of integrity alongside of the knowledge that brings about a full person.

A life of integrity is a life filled with the basic principles of living for Christ. A vision of living for Christ. So, as you see the two pictures above and you are aware of the building that stands there, please pray. This building represents a lot more to us and a lot more to this village. We see education as something that is not easily given in a land that is filled with people who need a deeper heart for their place in God's kingdom.
