In the Fall, a separate parcel of 2 acres of land was purchased with the plans to establish a small local goat farm and cheese making factory in conjunction with the Technical Institute to train local farmers and families in husbandry and healthy dairy consumption. A miraculous provision of another 7-acre parcel of land became available, just adjacent to the existing main campus, for the future construction of our long term goals- a local church/ multi-purpose building, an elementary school and children's village.
