Hi Brothers and Sisters
One thing that I forgot to include in my previous e-mail was the following.
The church and the school is not in a good condition at all. The problem also lies with the department of education.
The school is also almost 100 years, just think in the condition it can be if it is almost 100years and that it was never been renovated etc. The department of education sent a letter to the local church school telling them that they gonna removed the children from the school as the school is not BIG enough and as to the condition.\
We urgently need as much help as we can.Please help us before the department closes our school. It is the only school in that town.
The particulars of the pastor etc will be mailled to only those who repsond on this and previous mail.
God bless you all
His in Christ Mission

For those of you who want to contact Jerome, here is his e-mail address. My brother and I are on different continents, but we work for the same company. In our global address book his e-mail address is listed as:
I hope that helps.

Greetings, brothers and sisters,
I received an e-mail from Jerome and he wants me to let all of you know that he thanks God for all of you who've responded with offers of help. He will be communicating with you as soon as he can, however, right now he's on a big project for one of our company's clients and he doesn't have access to the internet at this time.
As some of you may already know, the church and school that Bro. Jerome is requesting help for is in South Africa. The school is still open but is suffering from disrepair, overcrowding, and the state is threatening to close the school because of those two reasons.
Brothers and sisters, I know we are all praying and I hope have been moved to compassion like our Lord Jesus, only His compassion led to ACTION. So, I too, plead on behalf of our brothers and sisters in South Africa that we are moved to ACTION.
One way of doing this is for episcopal districts, conferences, districts, local churches to pool our resources to help eliminate this crisis. All of us can become global missionaries by supplying the lumber, nails, hammers, etc. that it would take to rebuild and refurbish this church and school.
I am praying that we will come together on this vital issue.
Here is the short version of Jerome's e-mail address.
Love, peace, HOPE and JOY!!!
