ANU - Work and Witness Trip


 

Date: TENTATIVELY July 3-15, 2021
Place:  Nairobi, Keyna

This Work and Witness Trip will be to go and work at the African Nazarene University helping them with a variety of tasks.  The main objective is to install computers and projectors to help the university host online classes.  The team will be going to work in the IT department; working on ICT infrastructure from physical networks to server tuning as well as putting up hotspots around campus.  You might remember the 25th Anniversary project that we raised money at the District Assembly a couple of years back.  There is work to be done with the library system, construction efforts around campus and daily ministry to students who are studying at the campus.

Randy Jones is our coordinator for the Oklahoma District Mission Trip.  He will need to know if anyone is interest in going as soon as possible.  His contact information is (405) 612-4113 or select this link to email him.  The major expense is the airline tickets from an airport to be named at a later time.  The first order of business would be to obtain a passport, which may take sometime if you do not already have a valid one.

For more information about this Work and Witness trip, please follow this link.
