NTC-South Africa welcomes volunteers for workday
Fifty representatives from more than 14 churches across South Africa’s Gauteng and Western districts descended upon Nazarene Theological College in Johannesburg, South Africa, to help with clean-up, renovations, and general repairs around the campus on 18 February.
Due to recent financial struggles, the campus has encountered many challenges in maintaining its park-like atmosphere, but with the many hands and strong backs of the volunteers, much was accomplished.
Although ominous storm clouds were present the entire day, the group managed to repaint the principal’s office and part of another office in the administration block. In addition, they worked around the campus to help remove debris and rubble, trim many trees, and mow and rake the grass. They were also able to complete some cleaning tasks in the hostels and main buildings, as well as scraping and preparing water-damaged walls in the hostel for painting at the next work day.
NTC–South Africa Principal Rhonda Carrim stated that there will be another work day on 18 March 2023, and they hope to have many more volunteers come along and lend a hand.
