AFRICAN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

On September 21, a ferry capsized in Tanzania while crossing Lake Victoria. Though constructed to hold 101 passengers, there were reportedly 278 passengers on board. It is speculated that too many people were on the same side of the vessel causing an overbalance, which could not be corrected, thus causing an inevitable lift. The latest report is that 227 died and some were still missing. A handful of the victims of this tragedy were from Pastor Jacob’s Advent Christian Church. Other AC pastors took seriously the Lord’s instruction to “weep with those who weep” and traveled to the combined funeral to share in the community’s sorrow.

A few months ago, we shared with you a shift that has been happening in our Department of Leadership Development through the launch of field offices in an attempt to create a more collaborative and localized approach to the development of pastors, church planters and missionaries to serve within our network. This began through the launch of our Oxford, Maine field office, which is currently being led by our Coordinator of Leadership Development, Matt Larkin.
