SAUTI MOJA - AN AFRICAN PROJECT - SPECIAL SPEAKERS, KITCHEN LOUNGE, SUNDAY, JANUARY 15TH - AFTER CHURCH

SAUTI MOJA is an AFRICAN PROJECT FOR PEACE AND CARING and found in very rural areas of Kenya and Tanzania. Tim Wright and his wife, Lyn Bishop, creators of this project, have visited Regina often. Kathy Platt, Sunset UC's minister, has spoken to both our U.C.W. and the Men's Group about the project which she visited. 

Sauti Moja tries to help very poor people, often warring, come together in peace. It also supplies widows with camels or goats to become self-sufficient; and to young mothers without husbands to move forward in life, supplying enough daily needs to look after the mother, her child and usually the grandmother who becomes a babysitter while the young mother attends school. They teach Swahili to young Masai sheep herders who have not attended school. They bring warring communities together to solve problems and work in peace.

Alec and Linda Paul were thrilled with the nearly $1,000 support of the Wesley congregation to Sauti Moja through their partial walk in a Mount Kilimanjaro marathon. 

Come to hear about this important work in the kitchen lounge after church on Sunday, January 15th. It is so important and provided to Africans with love. Tim and Lyn are fascinating speakers.

For more info, phone Linda or Alec - 306-585-0988.

 

Thanks,
Linda Paul
