Turned Away From School
Maranatha Kids • 2m 40s
Come with us to the country of Zambia, located on the continent of Africa. We’ll visit the Kabwe Adventist School, one of the most popular schools in the city of the same name. It’s so popular and the facilities are so small, there isn’t room to fit all of the students. The school has to turn children away, many of whom aren’t Seventh-day Adventist and could be learning about Jesus. In today’s story, see how Maranatha helped this wonderful school to reach more kids.
