Teach * Reach * Bless Campaign Update

The East Ohio Conference reports, "There is good news from the Teach * Reach * Bless campaign to raise and collect $1.5 million to build and furnish a residence hall for women on the campus of Africa University. To date, commitments of $1,452,722.26 have been made toward the $1.5 million to break ground--and $413,441.74 has been collected. Thank you for your support, and for your commitment to improving the education and wellness of women today for a better Africa tomorrow. The dorm will enable more female students to live on campus, meaning they will not need to find off-campus housing and commute to class--situations that make them vulnerable to untenable situations." For more information about the campaign and what you can do do support, please visit the East Ohio Conference website at or contact Pastor Stephanie.
