I've just returned from a 10 day mission trip to India where I was able to inspect the Gateway School on the Come Together Compound.
I'm happy to report that all the grants from the Come Together Fund have been used to great effect:
* A new school bus purchased a couple of months ago with money from the Fund has enabled children to travel to and from school from their villages much quicker than had previously been possible.
* The school has recently expanded to 12 classrooms from the original 6 and has increased to 210 children.
* The staff is dedicated and enthusiastic (funded by the original money raised on tour a couple of years ago with World Vision).
I was also able to visit 2 Ignite churches with buildings constructed with funds raised from Third Day concerts in London, June 2009. One had already been open since Christmas, but I took part in the dedication service for both buildings.
