“Story matters. Writing is important. Stories make the world go around. Many things begin as words on a page. It matters to the world. And it matters to you. Don’t let anyone rob you of that. Don’t rob yourself of it, either. Don’t diminish. Don’t dismiss. Embrace. Create. Accelerate.” —Chuck Wendig
We need your help to tell the story of the New Africa; the story of God’s grace and blessing turning a hopeless continent into a continent of great hope (check out this letter from the Gates Foundation). The way forward out of the Old and into the New is not pity, but partnership; not answers and money from the west, but empowerment from God’s people. As the New Story takes root in reality, we will see the Church in Africa become more engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission.
Won’t You Help Us Tell the Story?
