On my recent trip to India I took students from IPFW university to visit The Come Together Compound. As part of the lead up to Gateway School opening on the compound towards the end of the year, we organized a fun day from children from the local villages. These children look really well kept but the reality is they all live in small concrete huts, some with thatched roofs, no running water, no sewage- toilets are simply the side of the road, they sleep on the floor or under their parents bed, they are wearing the only clothes they have, and most of them can't read or write because they've never been to school. They all had a great day at the compound and we pray it has whetted their appetite to attend the school when it opens. With the increasing cost of raw materials and transport due to fuel price rises, the school is taking longer to build than we originally thought but much progress has been made. As a team we spent a good amount of time praying in each of the soon-to-be classrooms and for the future teachers and pupils. The last big job is now the roofing structure, and all being well The Come Together Compound will be hosting the official opening of Gateway School in about 6 months time.
