Hearing Aids for Africa
Fri at 3:53pm
I have some friends that are part of the African Hope Initiative, helping the deaf kids in Africa (they actually went out to Africa in November to see how the construction of the deaf school was coming along, meet the kids, and speak with their parents). I think it’s great they’re part of this, and I want to be involved as well. So my project for the Initiative is to collect used hearing aids which will be donated to the deaf kids in Africa. I got a PO Box so people can send their used hearing aids, and I’ll give them to my friend and she’ll make sure they’re fixed and working properly before donating them to the deaf African kids.

If any of you here have used hearing aids, or know of anyone who has some laying around and have no clue what to do with them, and don’t mind giving them up… send them my way!

PO Box 50761
Casper, WY 82605

the PO Box isn’t that big (about the size of a 3-inch 3-ring binder that’s full… something like that).

If you want more info about the African Hope Initiative, they have a website and a facebook page.

Engineering Team Leaves for Burkina Faso Today

February 11, 2010

AHI partners Engineering Ministries Internationl are leaving for Burkina Faso today to make a detailed survey and site plan of the Light of Hope University campus. As mentioned on a previous post, this team brings together some city planners, engineers, and surveyors to plan for the campus which will eventuall house 30,000 students. That’s like planning for a good size town! Thanks to EMI for their generous contribution of time and effort for this project. Please pray for the team as they undertake this “labor of love.”

You can learn more about eMI on their website: http://emiworld.org/ .
