Welcome to Soweto, South Africa, and the home church of the New Church of Southern Africa and its seminary, Mooki Memorial College. We are raising money to build a wall around the property. The church and college are vulnerable to vandalism, burglaries, wild animals, fires, and floods. We have two sections built and are seeking your help in completing the remaining sections. Each section of wall (labor and materials) costs up to US $500.
Here's some info about the property and people along with what life has been like (without a wall) in an article by my wife, Annette Woofenden.
First part: see p. 76 of the June Messenger http://49lirp3us0hl3fg75c1nefee-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Messenger_20_06_June_v2.pdf .
Conclusion: see p. 88 of the July/Aug Messenger http://49lirp3us0hl3fg75c1nefee-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Messenger_20_08_August_FINAL.pdf .
We will keep you updated on the wall as it is built. Our next video will show construction of the third section in progress and a description of the materials being used. This is not a wealthy church, but a little goes a long way here. And offering employment for the construction of the wall during these tough economic times in Soweto has been helpful for the master bricklayer and his team. Below are pics of the beginnings.
Thank you for taking the time to view our appeal, and thank you for your donation of any amount. Oh, and stop by for a visit! We would love to give you a tour of Soweto. You may contact us below.
