RE: Africa Work & Witness Project-FALL, 2011

Date: January 15, 2011

 

Dear Friends,
It has been some time (3 +years) since our last EDUF work & witness trip to Africa.


It was, during our last trip to African Nazarene University, in Nairobi, Kenya did the need for additional scholarship dollars for ministers arise. The ANU chaplain during that time, Dr. Randy James, answered that call. His proposal to the Vice Chancellor was accepted, and twice, he was allowed time during winter breaks, to return to the United States for the specific purpose, of raising Scholarship monies. Many churches opened their hearts and their pocketbooks as Dr. James expressed and offered those needs. He, along with his wife, also accepted the challenge to bring the ANU choir to the United States during the last Nazarene General Assembly. Many of us were richly blessed as we kept those choir members in our homes, listened to their well-trained voices, and assisted them in their travels. We may NEVER know in this world, the change made in those ANU students’ lives, nor the influence they will offer to OTHERS with whom they may witness.

Having been involved in the above project, I want to give you an “update” on ANOTHER project that EDUF is undertaking.


Because of the success of African Nazarene University in Kenya, the General church is working on creating a “Southern” Africa Nazarene University in Manzini, Swaziland. There are already, such W/W groups scheduled to go from South Carolina. These work and witness teams will work on Administration Offices and dormitories at SANU. Our goal, is to follow those teams and offer assistance, where needed.

Please prayerfully; consider assisting us in this project. We MUST LIMIT the number of our group to 20-25. Therefore, YOUR “deposit”, when received ASAP, will assure you a spot on our team.
I am enclosing an application with explanation of our approaching deadlines, activities, and costs.  We will be assisted by Dr. Peter Ken Walker & his wife Linda, former Missionaries of more than 25 years in Africa.

As you can see, we WILL take time to enjoy a “Big FIVE” safari into Kruger National Park and Tshukudu Game Lodge, Hoedspruit www.tshukudulodge.co.za (near Kruger), as well as visit other Nazarene ministry areas in South Africa and Swaziland.

We look forward to your quick response. Also, please keep abreast by visiting the EDUF website at: www.edufoundation.org.
