We are excited to update you about the school construction in Mali! The school will be ready for new students this September 2023! We have been able to purchase most of what is needed to furnish the classrooms here in the US while the building has been going up in Mali. We are excited to see how quickly these two efforts are coming together! Take a look at what has been happening. 

10/27/22: We hire a Christian contractor- Zabilo Diarra.
12/21/22: Leveling of the land is completed and a wall is constructed to secure the property. Mapping out of the building placement begins.
1/6/23: Foundations for the new Kindergarten buildings are poured.
1/17/23: The building is beginning to take shape.
2/14/23: They begin work on the 2nd story. The sticks you see… are really sticks! They hold up the 2nd story while the cement dries for 20+ days.
3/8/23: Stairs and restrooms are constructed. The roof of the classrooms are being poured.
3/9/23: Back in the U.S. – Thanks to all your donations we were also able to purchase school equipment. Today we loaded it into a container to ship to Mali.
Wood furniture for the Preschool Classrooms ready to go!
Equipment and hundreds Love Pax loaded up.
Equipment and hundreds Love Pax loaded up.
The teams stops to pray for the container, its journey and all the tools that will be used to reach the children in Mali for Jesus.
The container makes it way to the port of Long Beach.

3/18/23: Our container is on a vessel and left port today- its on it way! We expect to see it in Bamako this June. A team will be deployed in July to go and set up the school in order to be ready for the new school year!
Please keep the school in Mali in your prayers as we near completion and we move forward to hire staff and register kids! We need prayer for:

  • Safety for the workmen
  • Safe and timely arrival of the container
  • Safe travels for the team in July and for strength to complete what is necessary
  • Wisdom in selecting and training new staff members
  • New sponsors for the additional kids for the new school year

Love Mali Team
