Hey everybody [that’s right, BOTH of you!], one of my fellow pastors in our region is raising funds to help a young African named Toivo pursue his education in Namibia.
Darin (the aforementioned fellow pastor) is the way cool pastor of Christ’s Church in Amherst, NH. His church has a very active ministry partnership with a Christian organization in Namibia.
Those of you who read my blog back in the myspace days, know that I am a sucker for Africa. I can’t help myself. I just love people who have a heart for Africa, so Darin and I hit it off and I followed closely (and not a little enviously) the progress of their most recent trip to Namibia.
So, here’s the deal. Toivo needs $7,500 to pay for this school year. We can make it happen by doing two things:
- I think that we should all head over to Darin’s blog, click the little button in the top left that says Give – Toivo’s Future and make a donation ourselves.
- Post a link to Darin’s blog anywhere you can and encourage any online friends you have to make a donation and pass the word along.
$7,500 sounds like a lot of money to us, doesn’t it? Now imagine what it sounds like to people in a country where 55.8% of the population lives on $2 per day or less! They live on what we waste on coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts.
It will take 300 people giving $25 per person to pay Toivo’s tuition this year. Take $2 and set it aside, and you will have the $25 in thirteen days (with a dollar to spare).
