14 members of the Cornerstone community going to Zambia
Golden Eagles - Tue, May. 8, 2012
Fourteen members of the Cornerstone community (Faculty, Staff, and Students) will be leaving for Zambia today. The team is led by Chip Huber (Dean of Spiritual Engagement) and will include Soccer Coach Mark Bell and his wife Catherine Mueller-Bell who teaches at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Matt Haller who works in Spiritual Formation, and 10 students (Alyssa Bowerman, Josh Feenstra, Isaac Grotenhuis, Adam Homan, Terry Huber, Josh Rimel, Kelley Ritsema, Emily Smeed, Riley Steen, Abrielle Tatro, and Sarah Wheelock). They will be partnering with Jubilee Ministries as they engage God's vision to change the world. They will be involved with schools and will be using sport to advance the Gospel of Christ. They will play soccer matches and hold clinics for children along with netball games as we use sports to help bring change in a community…we will participate in worship and dance and music and discussions as they celebrate and talk about life and faith in America and Zambia with other students. They will get to work and share and teach God's Word alongside and get to know and become brothers and sisters with those on the frontlines of God's Work in the African church…and they will be able to distribute life-giving bed nets that can continue to help respond to one of the most challenging epidemics (Malaria). Both the men's and women's soccer team have raised money over the past two seasons to help purchase the bed nets through a promotion called "Night of Nets".
