The African Hope Initiative and eMi get a little press…

January 13, 2011

The professional surveyor’s magazine, Point of Beginning, featured a story on the eMi team which surveyed and developed a site plan for the Light of Hope University last year. Pastor Michel’s inspirational vision for the university is made very clear, and the article affirms the active partnership between eMi, the African Hope Initiative, and the Word of Hope Foundation in Burkina Faso.  Kudos go to Randy Stelzner and David C. Lee who wrote the article.  You can read the online version by clicking on this link: http://www.pobonline.com/Articles/Article_Rotation/BNP_GUID_9-5-2006_A_10000000000000889436

African Hope’s One Year Anniversary

January 11, 2011

The African Hope Initiative was launched a year ago, and it has been an exciting year as you can see in the blog below. Now we look to what is ahead in 2011. Among other initiatives, here are some highlights for 2011:

  • The opening of the School of Business for the Light of Hope University in Ouagadougou.
  • The completion of the Multi-purpose Hall at the Ephphatha School for the Deaf. This will provide a place for whole school to meet at once and for parents to more easily engage with the school, as well as helping supply income for the school as a rental hall for outside events.
  • The launch of the agricultural project/orphanage in Benin. This will offer these orphaned kids to have training in a life skill which can provide an income for them.
  • The expansion of the Community Bible Study initiative to almost 1000 churches across Burkina Faso. Imagine the personal study of the Bible and discussions that will take place.
  • The building of a Maternity Wing at the Source of Life Clinic in Ouagadougou. Currently, there is such demand that women wait sitting on mats on the floor in a tiny room until just before they deliver.

Again, the African Hope Initiative works as a facilitator or catalyst by serving local initiatives through consulting, resourcing, and connecting the initiatives with other partners. The projects themselves are the work of local leaders who we are honored to encourage and serve.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
