On March 1, young people and adults involved in Student Ministries at the Grace Brethren Church of Aiken, S.C. held a walkathon called M’Baikithon. The purpose was to raise money to build student housing at the M’Baiki Bible Institute in the Central African Republic. Thirty- eight youth and family members raised more than $9,000, enough to build about three houses.

Don Soule, pastor of youth and families at the church says that many more houses need to be built (about 40 total). He challenges other Grace Brethren congregations to consider raising funds to construct more houses.
