Impressive Pace - Walls Rising at Wisdom

You have to see this!

The contractor at WISDOM Christian School is making remarkable progress on the new classroom building.

The walls are all up and ready for the roof to go on! We are excited at the great progress the contractor is making. Should have it dried in before the rainy season. 

The construction is on schedule to be finished by the end of the year. The LIVING WELL team will be back in January to set up the computer lab!

If you would like to help furnish the computer lab, DONATE NOW!

How do you build WISDOM school 10,000 miles away?

When LIVING WELL initially started raising funds to build at WISDOM Christian School, one of the concerns was knowing that the work was done according to the design and expectations of their plans and specifications.

It takes a team!!

Ed has a background in construction management and knows  how to write specs and draw plans. But he couldn't be there in person. Brother Charles is the on-site eyes and ears of the project management.  He sends regular updates and pictures to communicate what is happening.

Watch this foundation as it takes form.

Exciting Development for Educating Children of WISDOM

Construction begins on Classroom Building #3!!

Many thanks to our donors who funded
100% of our third classroom building!

While in Zambia, Ed Edwards met with Brother Charles and a contractor about a new classroom building. Shortly after the return of the LIVING WELL Mission Zambia team to the U.S., donations were received to fund the project. The contractor was then issued a contract for the new building. We pray that the contractor can finish the building before the rainy season begins.

The building will have two more classrooms, which will give WCS a classroom for each grade 1-7. The building will also have a room for a computer lab, giving room for as many as 15 computers. There will also be a room for a new kindergarten class. Zambia public schools offer kindergarten in all of their public schools. WCS will also follow that pattern.

The completion of this building will complete the current master plan for WISDOM Christian School!


MISSION ZAMBIA team leaves today for Ndola and WISDOM Christian School.

CAMP WISDOM starts Monday!

Looking forward to a great week with the CHILDREN of WISDOM!

Ndola Mayor Visits WISDOM

His Worship the Mayor, Mr. Amon Chisenga, visited WISDOM Christian School recently. The Mayor was very thankful for WCS allowing some of the community to take shelter in the school during one very stormy night. He wanted to make a personal visit to the school. He was also encouraged the school to apply again for the vacant plot next to it.

Barrels Open for WISDOM

The Barrels of Books and School Supplies arrived at Wisdom Christian School before the end of the year. We waited to open them until school started and the LIVING WELL team arrived. All barrels were still sealed and intact. And everything made it without damage!

They now have some much needed school supplies.

The teachers are excited about all of the books that await the children!

Lunch with WISDOM

We continue to serve lunch once a week to the CHILDREN of WISDOM. Everyday, some group is feed. In this line are 3rd and 4th graders. All the meals contain some form of protein - usually peanuts or beans - along with rice or corn.

We will provide lunch more times per week as funding increases.


They eat every bite!
