November 25th was a wonderful night of celebration, as AE supporters, mission partners and staff gathered at Moore College in Sydney to reflect on God’s work in 2017. Nearly 50,000 lives have been transformed through city wide missions, and hundreds of thousands of livelihoods have been improved through AE social action projects in in Africa, thanks to your prayers, gifts, support
The night was held in partnership with the Centre for Global Mission (CGM) and featured testimonies from former Zimbabwe Foxfire Simba Musvamhiri who is now a Canberra-based pastor and Dan Bidwell, who was involved with teaching PTC in Rwanda this year.
Director of the CGM at Moore College Simon Gilham and Ben Campbell, AE Australia Executive Director, also shared about the importance of developing strong theological training programmes like the Preliminary Theological Certificate (PTC) for an Afrocentric context, and shared stories from social action and development projects.
Executive Director Ben Campbell said:
“I feel very privileged to participate in this ministry in fellowship with so many people who have a great heart for God’s people in Africa. This occasion gave us all a great opportunity to get to know how the Lord has led us until now, and to prepare for mission and development activities in 2018.”
AE is looking forward to seeing many more come to know Jesus in 2018, and to hold similar thanksgiving events in other cities around Australia.
Thank you for partnering with us this year.
Note: CGM is a centre of Moore College, providing resources for evangelical training around the world.AE hopes to continue a partnership with Moore into the future, to see more Africans trained to handle the Bible well and in turn train their local communities.
