Winnipeg, Man. — In early January, Mennonite Church Canada Formation Consultant Elsie Rempel took up temporary residence in the guest house of the Brethren in Christ (BIC) regional offices in Choma, Zambia. Rempel is in Zambia’s Southern Province for a three month service leave to mentor schoolteachers in the region’s BIC Schools through a program supervised by Mennonite Central Committee Zambia directors, Eric and Kathy Fast. The Fasts specifically recruited Rempel for this role. Rempel invites prayers that she might have the wisdom and creativity to adapt her resources and teaching strategies to the challenging Zambian context, and that her short term of service will provide a ministry of encouragement.
