YWEA 2014: Igniting the Firewall

YWEA 2014 seeks to Ignite the initial phase of the joint venture between World Missions & Men & Women of Action’s African Firewall that will stretch across the continent of Africa. The African Firewall is a project of Marcelly’s Dream and hopes to enlarge the Kingdom of God by establishing ministry training centers that will house church plants, kindergartens, Internet café & computer training, after-school programs, soccer camps, and Bible Schools. Specifically we will attempt to fund the purchase and construction of three (3) Ministry Centers or Anchor-Points in Senegal, Niger and the Horn of Africa. Primary focus will be the care of children (daycare, medical clinics), discipleship & development of leaders, reaching the least, the last and the lost of Africa.
