Pamoja Africa (“Together Africa”) is a wake up call to prepare African students for leadership and Christian missions.
The vision for Pamoja Africa Conference is to accelerate the building of a new generation of spiritual leaders for a new Africa and beyond.
Africa is significant in God’s plan for world transformation and that plan invites young leaders to join hands across the continent to learn and share in leading the transformation of Africa. This is a call that every student and professional needs to respond to — it is a call to impact the nations.
Kay and Keith will participate in Pamoja Africa December 24 through January 5. We will celebrate Christmas early with our family in Dallas, then fly to Nairobi Kenya on Christmas eve.
Part of our involvement will be to help train 250 African Campus staff in using the Mobile Office tool our team has developed.
This will be our first time back in the African ministry since leaving Nigeria in 1992. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to minister in Africa again.
Mobile Office Project
Most of the international staff of Campus Crusade for Christ do not have their own computer. Of those who own a personal computer, most do not have internet access in their homes. Most use shared computers in internet cafés.
In an effort to improve communications and collaboration between staff, our team developed a Mobile Office. The mobile office allows staff to use internet cafes, without worry about the programs available on the computers, plug in their MOP drive, and work from it as if the computer they are renting is a terminal.

Kay and Keith will participate in Pamoja Africa to help train the 250 Campus Staff from around Africa in the use of the Mobile Office. We expect over the next 12 months to see a significant increase in collaboration across the continent as our staff work together to develop movements.

Greetings in Jesus name. It was a delight to meet you again. The conference WAS a blessing to me.
I have been back to base for a few months now and will give you a summary of events here:
-I have experienced growth in my prayer life
-More clients are coming to HOPE for services
-We have installed a VSAT internet and set up a cafe. This will greatly enhance our eEvangelism as we teach persons who are blind skills vital for fulfillment in todays office environment
Truly the Lord is good to me.
Thanks, Andrew. It’s encouraging to hear what the Lord is continuing to do through your ministry.
