All are welcome to the next International Lunch, where Julie Judd, one of our own church members, and Vanessa Mwangala of Urban Promise will share how they are teaming up to address the education deficit in Malawi, Africa. For the past two summers, Julie visited Malawi and witnessed first-hand how God has been using her Malawian friends to do amazing work for the Kingdom through various Urban Promise International ministries that focus on youth and education. Julie’s desire throughout her teaching career has been to share the love of Jesus with students and to shine the light of Christ. Since visiting Malawi, Julie’s passion has been focused on advocating for the uneducated. She has committed to teach for the next 2 years at African Bible College Christian Academy (ABCCA) in the capital city, Lilongwe. There, she will be teaching 6th-12th grade science classes and dance classes. She will also be leading worship, and taking students to the surrounding villages for outreach.
Julie is also leading a short-term mission trip to Malawi with members of RGC from July 17-August 1. If you are interested in participating on the trip, the deadline to sign up and make the first payment is March 1.
If you are attending the lunch, please bring food, buy pizza for $2 a slice, or go through the food line for $5. All proceeds go to Urban Promise.
