SCOPE

Greetings in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are excited about this first issue of Afroscope as it sets the tone for one of the greatest event in the AEA calendar—The General Assembly. The G.A presents a unique opportunity for ministries, organisations and individual Christians in Africa and beyond to network and take the opportunity for further collaboration and partnership. This year’s GA does not only set the agenda for the AEA program and activities for the next four years, but also sets our vision and mission through the strategic plan for the next 10 years.

The Evangelical Fellowship of Zimbabwe has been gracious to be our host for our reconvened GA, at a very short notice. The General Assembly will take place in the ultra modern Rainbow Towers hotel in Harare. The facility offers adequate conferencing capacity needed to host our meeting.
As plans for the GA are in high gear we are still cognisant of the fact that Christians in parts of North Africa and West Africa are still facing persecution. The atrocity in Libya, where 21 Coptic Christians were beheaded and attack on places of worship in Niger still lingers.

We urge you to pray earnestly for peace and protection of these chosen people of God. Prayer is not our last resort but a powerful weapon that we as Christians have in our armoury and in fact our first and primary line of defence, among reasons.

Warm congratulations to the Angola Evangelical Alliance, on their fortieth anniversary, which was witnessed by the GS, representing the rest of the AEA family last Christmas.

The women’s commission of AEA is also active and vibrant, organising seminars with the overall aim of equipping and strengthening the African woman’s capacity to effectively manage conflict in their communities.

Finally I would wish to personally congratulate Bishop Efraim MTendero, (commonly known as Bishop Ef) his appointment as the WEA Secretary General and the entire selection team, led ably, by Rev. Ndaba Mzabane. I strongly believe his election was of God and for such a time, to move the WEA forward and foster collaboration and unity among evangelicals around the globe

Bishop Efraim has a daunting task ahead of him but with our prayers and support his tenure will herald a great new chapter for the Evangelical Church worldwide.

God bless you all.
Rev. Aiah Foday-Khabenje
AEA General Secretary
