What has your association with Wilberforce meant to you personally, spiritually, and professionally?
I have appreciated the genuine interest and encouragement of Wilberforce staff in its mentees. Spiritually, I very much appreciate the opportunity to connect with both staff and fellow mentees from a similar Christian worldview, to pray for WII and to be prayed for.”
What are you doing now that is creating “redemptive change” in your community/city/country/profession?
I am trying to connect a student from African Christian University to the Africa Working Group to assist the group if there is interest with its communication needs. I hope both the student and the Africa Working Group benefit.
