Harrisburg is a small town, there’s no doubt about that. But despite it’s size, one local organization is making a world of impact for thousands of kids living thousands of miles away. The organization is Forgotten Voices International, and their focus is helping children orphaned by AIDS in Zimbabwe and Zambia.
On April 14th, 2012 midstate residents will have the opportunity to meet with and hear from Forgotten Voices President Ryan Keith and Africa/Zambia Director Remmy Hamapande at Transcend Church in Harrisburg. Remmy will be in the US for only a few weeks before returning to Zambia.
I’ve personally had the opportunity to meet Remmy once before, and I can wholeheartedly say that he is the definition of a servant leader. He chose to leave his full time position with Barclay Bank in pursuit of a theological education at the Theological College of Central Africa (TCCA).
Remmy then joined Forgotten Voices International as the Zambia Director in 2008, and was appointed Africa Director in 2010. He communicates with and visits church-lead projects throughout Zambia which are in partnership with Forgotten Voices to care for children orphaned by AIDS and create sustainable solutions within the community. His unique combination of business savvy and a pastor’s heart enable him to serve as an ally and advisor to Zambian churches, and a representative of these churches to the broader Forgotten Voices family.
In his own community, Remmy serves as Associate Pastor of Children’s Ministry at his local congregation. Most recently the Zambia Brethren in Christ Conference appointed Remmy Chair of Christian Education for Zambia.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from a truly inspiring individual during the Forgotten Voices Service taking place at Transcend Church in Harrisburg on April 14th!
