From serving dinners to shaving heads to hosting auctions, Hands at Work Advocates are creative in raising support and awareness for Hands at Work and the most vulnerable in Africa. When teams and individuals return from Africa, they often have opportunities to share stories at different events and in their local churches. There are many ways to advocate for the most vulnerable in Africa – sharing stories with family and friends, hosting bake sales or dinners, telling people in your local church about Hands at Work, prayer and inviting others to join you, meeting together with other advocates to encourage one another, sharing on social media. The ideas are endless!
When Jill and Karl Monnick visited South Africa in July with the Sunbury Baptist Church Team, they were deeply impacted by their community visits. The team spent much of their time in Sommerset Community, but also had the opportunity to spend two days in Beeskop Community, near the Swaziland border.
