Initiatives by CMS-Africa Local Partners to alleviate the effects of the covid-19 pandemic on communities.
Background to the Local Partners
CMS-Africa has 17 Local Partners drawn from 8 African countries. They comprise 14 men and 3 women: two of them are a married couple. These beloved servants of God are indigenous, high-impact mission champions who are developing leaders, making disciples for Christ and engaged in efforts to holistically transform local communities. The tenure of a Local Partner is three years, with the possibility of renewing it once.
When the covid-19 crisis landed on the continent and began to be felt in every sector of society, vulnerable populations would of course be hardest hit. The Local Pastors approached CMS-Africa for whatever support could be garnered to help the most needy families. As friends and partners, staff and other stakeholders responded to the appeal, these funds were directed to the LPs.
We remain indebted in the enduring debt of love to you, brethren of St. James Church by the Park. We thank God for the opportunity to collaborate for the sake of expanding the Kingdom of God by doing the works of Christ.
