Dennis Singini Arrives in Greensboro, NC & Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA

Report on Dennis' Activites in North Carolina and Virginia

Submitted by Host Rob Robins, Osborne Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC

Dennis arrived at Greensboro at 11:30 pm on 8/13, several hours late. On Sunday the 14th we visited Osborne Baptist Church, but were unable to stay for the entire service due to the fact that Dennis needed to be at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA, some 100 miles away, at 12:30 pm to begin his business class. After a quick stop at Ci Ci’s pizza and the campus bookstore, Dennis began his five day intensive class in Strategic Planning. Dennis stayed with Wes Gauldin and his wife who graciously shuttled him around and fed him for a week. (Wes’ brother-in-law has been to Malawi and is friend’s with Dennis.) 

On Thursday night the 19th, I picked Dennis up from Lynchburg. Saturday we went fishing during the morning and then Dennis mowed some of Genesis Ministries field with my little tractor. The next day – Sunday - he was able to teach an adult connection group at Osborne Baptist, before preaching a fabulous sermon at M & L Tabernacle of Faith in Reidsville, NC, followed by a wonderful meal. Sunday evening Dennis spoke at a Celebrate Recovery, sharing the testimony of how his drunkard dad met Jesus and was changed. 
Monday, the 22nd, we went to Celebration Station and raced go-carts, rode bumper boats, and played a game of Putt-Putt golf. That evening we, my 8 yr. old, David Hinton - a young man who spent over 3 months in Malawi, and Delana, who has also been to Malawi, went to an indoor rock climbing facility. To which, Dennis made it the 40’ to the top. 

On Wednesday, before flying to San Diego, Dennis spoke to the Elementary students at Community Baptist Christian School, presented a beautiful chief’s chair to the pastor of M&L Tabernacle, and had lunch with another African American pastor.

Summary Report from Dennis Singini's Hosts in New Jersey

Dear Friends, 
It is with great joy and thanksgiving that we send our good friend and brother Dennis Singini on to North Carolina. His time with us here in New Jersey has been devoted to assisting him in starting his new role as the Malawi Director for WorldHope Corps by introducing him to other believers who are already involved in mission work in Malawi and by creating opportunities for him to present his vision and to shape his message.
We facilitated meetings between Dennis and two faith-based groups and are confident that we have laid the groundwork for future assistance and cooperation. We saw Dennis making personal connections and even watched as he made plans to meet with some our friends, now his friends too, when they are in Lilongwe in September. 
We never know what God has planned, but we are filled with joy over the warm reception people here showed Dennis and with hope that a great future for Dennis and the people of Malawi has been forged here in New Jersey. 
With blessings to all, from the warm heart of New Jersey, Helen and Ruth

Dennis Singini Arrives in New York to begin his USA Tour

Dennis Singini arrived at JFK this week to begin his USA Tour with WorldHope Corps, hosted for the first day by Dr. Caroline Njuki, board member of WorldHope Corps, Inc.

"We had our briefing and Dennis shared stories about his work," Caroline posted. "I shared with him donor trends and fund-raising tips, and will help him all I can."  

"It was worthy time spending and touring New York city," Dennis replied.  "It made me realise I am really IN the USA. Many thanks to Dr. Caroline!  Am now back from a music festival with [WorldHope Corps volunteer] Stacy Radmore.  It was wonderful to enjoy the music, tasting different foods and meeting other friends. Thanks to Stacy for taking me there. I appreciate all her generosity."

Thank you all so much for your contribution to the success of Dennis's trip. Shalom,  Caroline Njuki
