The Expansion International Africa team facilitated our first ever Virtual Student Conference in August 2020. The conference was a great success allowing students from all seven EI communities to gather virtually to be encouraged through various speakers. Since it had such a great impact on those who attended, they were able to hold another virtual conference this past December.
Students were greatly encouraged by Matthew 25:21 which says, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.”
Five different speakers shared an array of messages like disciplined character, hard work and focus, and the good news of Christ. It was reported that “Seeds were planted in the hearts of the students and all the participants. They might not be visible as they are buried deep into their hearts but as time goes by and they are continually watered and cultivated they shall surely sprout and blossom all for the Glory of God.”
