The Work & Witness team from West Virginia South District has demonstrated not only team spirit, but also the Spirit of the team.
First, they are fulfilling the stated reason that they came which is to replace hundreds of inefficient lightbulbs for more efficient ones. This will save ANU thousand of dollars each month!
Second, the team has shared in ministry with the ANU community. The Sunday morning service at University Church of the Nazarene concluded with the regular monthly healing service and the anointing with oil for those who request it. When ministers were asked to come forward, the ministers on the team came to pray with those who lined the altars.
Rev. Patty Williams shared her testimony at chapel on Tuesday morning. She had been to Nairobi before, twice in fact. The first time, she walked with Harmon Schmelzenbach as he explained his dream to change the current Bible College into a university that would transform the world. The second time, she never made it to the university grounds because of a tragic accident. You can read more about it, here.
Not pictured – leading morning devotions at the workshop and probably a lot more.
Third, the team has reached out to the greater Nazarene ccommunity. The team brought children’s toys. When it became apparent that they were not going to be able to go to the children, the children from the school run by the Mathare Church of the Nazarene were brought to the campus – a field trip. The team hosted an impromptu children’s day with sports, coloring and more.
Thank you West Virginia South District. You are welcome to come back any time.
For those of you who like reading Greg’s sermons, here is the one he preached on Sunday morning at University Church. BTW, you really should follow his blog.
For those of you who like to see the beautiful campus where we live, just one shot this week.
Enjoy General Assembly and attend the Friends of ANU function.
