Monday evening we attended the Wesleyan International Educational Leaders Institute- Africa and ran in to this
old friend of long standing. Dr Fairbanks is attending as a presenter.
The Wesleyan church has 8 schools in the Africa area. We were able to meet several heads of institutions and church leaders from across Africa and several Wesleyan educational and clergy development leaders from the United States as well.
Please pray as we continue to build bridges for more effective kingdom work. Also continue to pray for those affected by the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone. The Wesleyan delegates to this meeting from the two schools there were not able to attend.
Quote from Amy’s reading: Teaching Cross-Culturally: An Incarnational Model for Learning and Teaching by Judith E. and Sherwood G. Lingenfelter, Grand Rapids, MI:Baker Academic, 2003.
“When we internalize the principles of Scripture to respect everyone with whom we work (1 Peter 2:17), to submit to those who govern our work (1 Peter 2:13), and to do good things for those around us (1 Peter 2:15), we create an environment of peace and goodwill that will be a blessing to others” (p. 116).
