Unity Christ Center in Eau Claire, Wis., has been honored to be involved with a project that moved our consciousness from local to global. We were invited to be prayer support for the It Can Be Done Africa project beginning in 2008. In 2007 a group from Chicago began efforts to bring clean water to the village of Uru, at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. Our connection: the founder conducts workshops at our Unity center annually.
That first call for prayer resulted within days in magical outcomes with more water accessed than ever anticipated. Trenches are being dug and pipe laid to move the water to a reservoir. The first trench was named “Unity Path.” We cried.
We were blessed to have Alphonse and Eva Ngowi visit us in Eau Claire in September 2011 (see photos above). A women’s initiative has now been formed by Eva and is moving forward to create fair trade products. We will be carrying four sewing machines to the village, notwithstanding its limited access to electricity.
I am honored to join in fundraising and in our mission trip in January 2012. We are developing marketing for distributing the products produced by the women and children of the village.
The Unity movement continues to evolve globally carrying the message of hope and love into a world hungry for its message. To learn more and how you can support these efforts, go to www.itcanbedoneafrica.org.
