The dream of having the first ever internet café on the grounds of Trans-Africa Theological College has become a reality!
Two churches in Montreal, Laval Christian Assembly and Trinity Church – Lasalle, raised the necessary funds for the project. Pastor John Ippolito, and Jimmy Abraham (an IT specialist from LCA) caught the vision of coming to Zambia to set up the internet on the second floor of the Ministry Formation Center.
The “J” team, as they are now known, took on a truly International flavour. Jackson the electrician, Joseph the painter and John the IT guy at TTC prepared the way for John and Jimmy to come from Canada and complete the final installation. And just to make the “J” Team complete, José the decorator (my MJ) chose the colours. Every team needs the touch and taste of a classy woman!!!!
The vision is simple – a café for the students, run by the students with the ultimate goal of community outreach. The strategy is just as simple – a three month trial run for the students starting in May and opening the doors to the surrounding communities in September. Already, the news is spreading in the compounds surrounding TTC about the café that is coming to town.
The system is up and running and two computers are already in place. Now all that remains is for the container to arrive from Canada with the rest of the computers to be installed. It could come at any moment, maybe even today.
Instead of me doing the talking, let the pictures paint a thousand words, starting with the before and after. Enjoy!
Until next Monday…
Taking risks for Kingdom impact!
