VERNON TOWNSHIP — The Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship welcomes everyone to this month's dinner meeting Thursday at Perkins restaurant on Conneaut Lake Road. Dinner is at 6 p.m. followed by the meeting at 7.

The guest speakers this month are Rev. Wilson and Nancy Kamau. The Kamaus have been ministering in Africa since 1989. They have visited the U.S. several times and spoke at Full Gospel twice.

In 1998 God spoke to Wilson to open an orphanage for children left alone due to HIV and AIDS affecting their parents. The same year, tribal clashes arose and the area was destroyed, but Wilson's family and church were not affected. In 2008, violence again broke out. This time their home, church and orphanage were destroyed, but God protected the Kamaus and the children.

Wilson and Nancy have planted and oversee many churches, even in the most neglected parts of East Africa. The Lord has provided the land and home where the orphanage now stands. They quote Psalm 11 8:23, "The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes." The hope of the Kamaus would be for a school and medical center for the children, if it is God's will.

The Meadville Full Gospel chapter has been supporting the orphanage each month for a couple of years thanks to the support of members and guests at the meetings.

Special music will be provided by the Kamaus.
