Kenya: Thank You From Andy Whitman RRI


Thank you for giving to BGMC so we can build a Royal Rangers Training Center in Kenya, East Africa! We could not do this without your help!

Here is a report on the building:
Phase 1 is a 35’ x 60’ tabernacle at the heart of our building that includes the dining area, kitchen, a courtyard and dorm mother/ dorm father rooms on each side of the kitchen w/ baths. The facility will also be used for Royal Bridging Center, for national Men’s Fellowship meetings, and for Kenya Kids classrooms when not in use by Rangers. $7,500 in BGMC funds was given to us to begin building the tabernacle, which is the basic “skeleton” of the building. The Men’s Fellowship Department of the Kenya Assemblies of God is constructing separate bathroom facilities and a septic field on the site to serve the needs of the training center.

Phase 2: The Louisiana District raised $4,500 so we could buy and set a 20-foot container on the property and build shelving to store all of our Royal Ranger equipment. Phase 2 is already complete!

Phase 3 is the boys’ dorms and girls’ dorms on either side of the tabernacle. Again these are for both Royal Bridging Center and for housing during Royal Ranger training events for Kenya and for all of East Africa. The site is an easy 45-minute drive from the main airport.

Phase 4 is the office complex at the front of the building.

Phase 5 is a second story with additional classrooms. The total building, if all five phases are completed, will be 50’ x 100’ and will take up about one-fourth of our acre plot. The remaining three-fourths acre will be used for parade grounds and tent camping. The Kenya Assemblies of God is considering giving us an acre as well.
