This is my invitation to you to be part of the iProject 2013 and be part of the Solution to Trafficking and Poverty

On Sunday the 19th May 2013, Nowra City Church will be taking up its annual Imagine Offering. This will be the 11th such offering that has been taken up over the last 11 years. This is an offering that is a missions and social justice offering that is sown into multiple countries around the world. Over the last few weeks I have preached and blogged on some of the significant issues the world faces. Here is my blog on Globalisation and Poverty.   Here is my blog on Human Trafficking. We must do something about these issues. We must not be silent. I am writing this blog because I want to invite the readers of my blog and my Facebook and Twitter friends to contribute to being part of the solution. All the money raised goes into Missions and Social Justice projects: including two anti slavery projects and multiple projects that deal with poverty. This year there are 17 Projects in 6 Nations. Here is a brief Summary:

  • Finance a rehabilitation house for ex teen prostitutes in Kathmandu, Nepal. This is a major project and will finance the entire rent, the staffing and food budget, the retraining and then provision of  microenterprise finance for businesses to be started.
  • Construct a toilet block in a rural school outside of Danang, Vietnam. This will also include a water filtration system. One of the world’s biggest killers of children is poor sanitation and unclean water.
  • Put in a well for a village in Tanzania. The village is called Nija Panda Town and is 20kms east of Moshi. The total number of people this will impact is about 700. This is project undertake in partnership with Compassion International.
