MICS (Macha Innovative Christian School) was created in 2004. The area of Macha had no quality elementary school for the children of the region. In addition, there were numerous orphaned and abandoned children who needed a place to call home.
Gil and Ronda have been living in Africa for the past 15 years. Over 5 years ago, they moved to the remote village of Macha, Zambia. They are located more than 2 hours from the closest paved road and 5 hours from a major city. Electricity and water are not readily available for them, so needless to say, life is always an adventure in Macha.
