from Pastor Dennis Meeker and deaconess Lorna Meeker at Point of Grace Academy:


Point of Grace Primary School has 788 students. Point of Grace High School has 215 students. this requires 30 teachers and 70 support staff. POGA Junior School has 160 students located at Lorna's home in Ringa. POGA is supporting 85 students in National Secondary Schools in different parts of Kenya. POGA has place 113 students in university and middle-level colleges. We thank god for wisdom and strength to carry us through this mission He has placed in rural Ogal Beach, Kenya.

POGA has two pastors working alongside Pastor Meeker: Chaplain Edwin Nyago and Parish Pastor Rev Paul Okeyo. Keeping a Christ-centered campus on a daily basis is essential to caring for students and the community at large. Pastor Edwin is in charge of Point of Grace Academy; Pastor Paul is in charge of Aigo Parish (seven congregations) assisted by Pastor Edwin. They are a great team!

Nikea Health Center has been established at POGA. We have an administrator, a clinical officer, a lab technician, a nurse, and a receptionist. The facility supports the school and the community at large. This has reduces medical costs for the school, and transport costs are reduced substantially.

The construction of a girls' dormitory is underway with a vision of being completed in April 2025. this dormitory will house 400 girls. This upgrade will better their living conditions.

The farm is going on well  and has also expanded and improved. The two greenhouses have been remodelled and are now back into full operation. The cow barn has been expanded and is housing eight cows with a good amount of milk being produced. The chicken housing has expended and 2,000 layers are producing nice quantities of eggs. Vegetables, maize, goats, and sheep are also contributing to the mission of taking care of children. The high school agriculture students are active on the farm.

We want to thank each and eery one of you for your prayes adn support. We would never have gotten to where we re today without your hands of mercy. you have literally changed the lives of many children, some of whom we will never know! That's just how God works - beyond our understanding.

Please continue to pray for the pastors, staff and students at Point of Grace Academy. Your financial support of Point of Grace will also be a tremendous blessing to those served by this ministry.
