Worldlink International of Valley Forge sponsored the container for Cephas Tushima and his family to return to Jos, Nigeria. Cephas studied at The Westminster Theological Seminary in Glenside and will now teach at ECWA theological seminary (JETS) in Nigeria. Mission Relief provided all the logistical support for this mission family, and even loaded their Honda SUV into the container. MMI and Mission Relief provided additional requested items to the family’s possessions, and many friends and volunteers participated in the load. One out of 4 Africans is Nigerian.
