First let me extend to you our thanks for your continued support in helping Christian Leaders for Africa provide scholarships to students at Africa International University (AIU) and the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST). Your support has enabled us to provide aid to 26 students working on their PhD, 20 students working on their masters and 15 students who are enrolled working toward their undergraduate degree in theology.
As we approach the end of this calendar year we are also coming upon the start of the second semester at AIU. Our next major support for scholarships is due in January 2015. Please consider a year end gift to help us make the second semester payment. CLA is the largest single contributor to the university, and your support is important in maintaining the legacy that was built there by Dr. Chet Wood.
As you consider what the Lord is placing on your heart about AIU, look at the two photos of graduates of this wonderful university.
The first picture is of George Odhiambo Ogalo (pictured above with family), who was recently announced as the new National Director of FOCUS in Kenya. FOCUS serves over 42,000 university students on college campuses. George is a graduate of Africa International University.
The second picture shows Dr. Nelson Makanda Ndonga (center). Nelson was just chosen to be the Deputy General Secretary of the National Council of Churches of Kenya-NCCK. Nelson received his PhD from AIU. It should also be noted that the outgoing Deputy General Secretary, Oliver Kisaka Simiyu, is also a NEGST alumnus and three other NEGST-AIU graduates serve in prominent positions at NCCK.
Yes, we are building Christian leaders for Africa. And with your support we will continue to do so.
Blessings to you and your families during this Christmas season.
