In the heart of Africa
The topics presented by nac.today cover a wide range of technical, administrative, and even personal topics. This week we take you to Africa to bring you up to speed on the developments there.
The NAC in Guinea has launched its own website
The New Apostolic Church Guinea has just launched its own website. The French-speaking site can be found at https://www.ena-guinee.org. It features general information about the New Apostolic Church, including an online congregational search, as well as information and articles on current events. The website also features the history of the still young New Apostolic Church in Guinea.
The link directory on nac.today has been updated accordingly. At the bottom of the nac.today page, readers find links to websites of New Apostolic District Churches and aid organisations.
Timapita ku Zambia
“We are going to Zambia!” is the title of a recent article on NAK-karitativ, the aid organisation of the New Apostolic Churches in Germany. “Also this year, NAK-karitativ is sending two young adults to do volunteer work.” Helen and Silvan from Germany will be heading to Zambia in September. For twelve months they will volunteer with NACRO (New Apostolic Church Relief Organisation), the partner organisation of NAK-karitativ, and assist in the areas of education and agricultural development. Such a trip requires a great deal of personal commitment, the charity says.
