ServLife at Work in Africa

Steve and Amy Nicholson are ServLife staff in South Africa, working to expand the local church, reach out to at-risk children, and work with victims of economic crisis. One key aspect of the Nicholson’s ministry is granting micro-loans to help get small businesses started. Pastoral training is another vital focus of the ministry. Steve’s recent update notes that both projects are moving full-speed ahead.

“Our Cape Town work is in motion,” Steve writes, “with all parties working toward our common goals of training more township pastors and extending micro-loans to township entrepreneurs.”

Steve is encouraged about the potential of the new training curriculum that will be used for church leadership training. “Our new Biblical Community Development curriculum for the pastor training college is being edited, revised, and expanded by the local teachers,” he says, “and will soon enter the translation stage.”

Three new ServLife interns recently arrived in South Africa, and Steve delivered them to the Musha Wevena Children’s Home in Zimbabwe.

Meredith, Kristine, and Megan are already a part of the family,” he notes, “and our toughest job seems likely to be getting them to leave Zimbabwe at the end of their assignment!”

As ServLife continues to expand in Africa, we need your prayers and support now more than ever. Prayerfully consider giving online today to help continue our work throughout Africa.
