The Diversity of the Body:  Our Time in South Africa - October 2016

For ten days in October 2016, David and Cathy Horner traveled to South Africa carrying out the vision of EFL to equip Christian leaders.   We especially enjoyed working alongside George Tissiere and Larry Warren with a work team from Providence.  They did an amazing job of painting, tiling, building a celling and in many other ways helping a church prepare its new building as a place of worship and child-care.  

Cathy taught a conference for women's leaders working in the Khayelitsha township. Along with a couple of other pastors and leaders from the United States, David got to teach as part of a church-planting pastors' conference.  The pastors are Ethiopian and have planted over 75 churches among Ethiopian refugees all over South Africa.  A hard-working team of leaders from South Korea give oversight to that great work and provide support for their labors.

The collective choir, orchestra and bands of Baptist Youth of Ukraine provided the worship music for the forum.  This song is from a concert they led the night after the forum.

For the forum of Youth Leaders, the vision was presented and a good Word was delivered. A special thanks to you for the book which we and many other leaders use. ...People quickly understand the idea of vision and capture it. It works and it’s a great pleasure and joy.
