On April 9 at 6 p.m. we have the rare opportunity to hear from several Bishops from East Africa. We’ll hear first hand accounts of the vital work God is doing in the Anglican Communion. We’ll also hear how we can pray for their ministries and explore opportunities for further partnerships in “Making Biblical Anglicans for a Global Age.” Supper will follow in the Bishop Allison Courtyard, hosted by the Anglican Communion Development Committee. Students are encouraged to attend and to bring their youth leaders. We also welcome The Rev. Dr. Peter Moore who will moderate the conversation with the Bishops. Parking is available in the Cathedral lot and the CPW parking lot on Vanderhorst St. behind the parish house.
Read it all and we ask your prayers; thanks..
People of the Diocese of South Carolina and the several other orthodox Anglican Churches in SC:
Kudos to your bishop and diocesan mission committee for arranging this opportunity to learn and participate with God in what He is doing in East Africa. We at Anglican Global Mission Partners and New Wineskins were blessed to have these bishops, and Archbishop Mouneer with us all last week at New Wineskins in North Carolina.
I heartily recommend your interest in the pioneer work Bishop Rob Martin is doing with a staggering variety of colorful but hard to reach people groups in Marsabet in the arid but beautiful north of Kenya. He is on the cutting edge of pioneer mission in Africa. If additional human leadership resources could find their way to his diocese, they could be used to creatively resolve the challenge that
militant Islam is mounting against Christian sub-Saharan Africa on one of the key fronts of Islamoimperialism. Please attend and pray hard about your part in what the Bishops are inviting you to tonight.
Also for the courageous and less risk adverse persons among you:
Check out Bishop Abraham Nhial and the work he is doing on the front line of persecution by genocidal extremist in South Sudan.

We have so much to learn from our brothers and sisters in East Africa. They have dealt and are dealing with the issues that trouble us, and do so with many fewer physical resources and much greater spiritual power (available to us)! Any opportunity we can get to learn from these Bishops will be of great value. Please prayerfully consider attending and bringing others with you. I’m sorry that I’ll be unable to join you tonight.

I won’t be able to attend either, but I’m sure that all who attend will be blessed. Where’s AnglicanTV when you need a recording?
Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania and Rwanda–all four provinces in one setting–if you are in South Carolina, this is not to be missed! This will be a great missions conversation, and a wonderful demonstration of the unity we have in Christ Jesus. Last week at New Wineskins, the folks gathered (about 900 including Rock the World) were from at least 13 provinces from around the world. Great diversity brought together by the common call of the Cross and Empty Tomb of Jesus Christ. I look forward to reading a report tomorrow from those who are able to attend–since I am now back in Central Florida.
#3. Just saw this on Kevin Kallsen’s FB page.
While Kevin was not there, Greg Shore filmed it for Anglican TV. Kevin plans on having the entire event video up by the end of the week.
from Greg’s FB post shared on Kevin’s FB page:
I was privileged to film an event for AnglicanTV Ministries last night at the Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul [Cathedral for the Diocese of SC if you did not know the name]. Four bishops from East Africa shared about the work of the Gospel in their countries. They joyfully proclaim the Gospel in difficult and in some cases, physically inhospitable environments.
There is more and a short video on FB. More to come later in the week.
