John Tasker has just returned from a busy trip to Luanda, Angola for the Diocesan Synod where they spoke about (amongst other things) the possibility of multiplication & financial stewardship. They also had a presentation from Rebecca Vander Meulen from the Diocese of Niassa on organising Community Health Teams to tackle malaria with support from the Cross-Border Malaria Initiative sponsored by the J.C. Flowers Foundation.
Of the many things John managed to fit into his trip, he visited a school that ALMA have helped to establish;
He also met with the two theological students that MANNA helped to secure a grant for to enable them to study theology and go to to be priests:
He also met with members of the Mothers Union team leading a micro-finance programme which had 2,683 members in 110 groups last year. Wow!
A great trip!
