Wrapping up 2014
AIU Graduates

First let me extend to you our thanks for your continued support in helping Christian Leaders for Africa provide scholarships to students at Africa International University (AIU) and the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology (NEGST). Your support has enabled us to provide aid to 26 students working on their PhD, 20 students working on their masters and 15 students who are enrolled working toward their undergraduate degree in theology.

As we approach the end of this calendar year we are also coming upon the start of the second semester at AIU. Our next major support for scholarships is due in January 2015. Please consider a year end gift to help us make the second semester payment. CLA is the largest single contributor to the university, and your support is important in maintaining the legacy that was built there by Dr. Chet Wood.

As you consider what the Lord is placing on your heart about AIU, look at the two photos of graduates of this wonderful university.
