Mentor of the Month - Londani

August 6, 2014

 

When co-workers are asked to describe Londani, several words come to mind:

Dependable. Faithful. Always learning. Humble. Growing.

 

Londani first joined our staff a few years ago, assisting with the construction of the food garden fences and water tanks at schools in Sweetwaters. He had never done construction before, but quickly learned the new skills. He then transferred over to helping to lead the construction crew at the community center site. Londani was born in Sweetwaters and grew up here—so he is thrilled about this chance to give back to his community.

 

As leader of the site team, Londani is responsible not only for making sure the community center is built correctly (using eco-friendly “rammed earth” technology, a new technology for everyone working there), he also is tasked with the job of creating a team spirit amongst the staff on the site.

 

“Everyone working here was previously unemployed,” Londani explains. “They are from this area. So we are not just building a community center that will help the children in this area, but we are skilling people in this community so that when this job is done, they have a new skill and they are more qualified to go out and get a new job.”

 

Londani hopes that the first phase of the community center—a preschool, will be finished by the end of the year. This part of Sweetwaters does not have a preschool, and the Nkosi (chief) of Sweetwaters specifically asked that the community center start with a preschool. Once the preschool is finished, work will start on phase two—a community hall and classrooms for after-school programs and weekend events.


For Londani, it’s all about creating a place of hope for the children of this area—a place where they can be safe and receive the education and the support they need to grow spiritually and make wise choices. So whether he’s testing soil quality, setting up shuttering, ramming earth, or sorting out staff disagreements, Londani sees it all as doing his part to help bring hope to this community.

 

 

PRAYER REQUEST

 

  • Pray for Londani’s family. Londani got married in February. Pray that God will be the center of his marriage and that he will be a good father to his young son.

 

  • Pray for wisdom and skill as Londani leads the staff on site. Many of the staff do not know Jesus, and Londani wants to show them who Jesus is through his leadership and love.

 

  • Pray that all the funding for phase one (and phase two!) of the center will come through, and that construction can move quickly during the dry season.

 

***The Lord has used the funding you gave from last year's Wet & Wild event to sponsor Londani. This year, we want to fund more men in the community just like him. YOU can help us!
