George Lockhart and Vision 2 Hear have had a long standing relationship with Nigeria. Since 2001, George has been traveling to Nigeria helping dig 9 water wells (plus two in Benin) in that time. He has been in partnership with WorldCare Ministries of Kings Mountain, NC from the beginning.
Dr. Moses Neuman, founder of WorldCare is from Nigeria himself and still has much of his family residing there. Working in conjunction with Dr. Neuman, WorldCare, and others, George has been able to assist in seeing many things happen over the last decade.
This trip is the first in over 4 years and George is returning to catch up on the latest work that has been accomplished in his absence. For years, George and his various team members would mix concrete, carry blocks and shovel dirt in helping to build a school. That school has now been completed and is being used on a daily basis! We praise god for his faithfulness through the years to see this task and building completed. George is going back to be part of celebratory exercises and share in the school for a few days.
While in Nigeria, George will also be able to catch up with and visit several of the students/people that have been involved with Vision 2 Hear Africa. We have helped provide school funding for Festus Okwara and Prince Okerke, along with some assistance to Rosemary Kalu and Ikechukwu Okoronkwo. Festus and Prince have graduated recently and George will be able to join them for celebrations of their accomplishments.
We will also be taking some school supplies provided by Christ Fellowship Academy in Palmetto Bay, Florida. Students and Staff of CFA generously gave at the beginning of the school year to help provide supplies for students in our new school. We cannot thank Mrs. Blanco and Mrs. Cruz along with all the CFA Students enough for their kindness and support!
George will fly out on January 19 and return on January 31. Please keep him in your prayers and all of the team from WorldCare and Vision 2 Hear as they travel abroad to continue expanding God’s Kingdom.
