Coby & Pamela McGinty, South Africa
Coby and Pamela McGinty are serving in Cape Town, South Africa, at the Student YMCA, a Christian organization on the campus of the University of Cape Town (UCT). Combining their passion for student ministry and their love of the African Continent, God called them to serve at this world renowned university which lies at the tip of Africa. Their ministry centers around teaching the Bible, discipling students, and evangelism on campus. The entire family is involved in extending hospitality to these students, who have come from 98 different nations to this campus of 20,000. The McGinty's desire to offer a home-away-from-home for students, an inviting place where they might share their lives with them while offering up sound Biblical teaching on a variety of issues. These students are the future leaders of nations, businesses, hospitals, law firms, churches and families. They pray their influence might help them to become bright lights for Christ in a sometimes dark world.
Aaron & Sara Toombs, Senegal
Aaron & Sara Toombs are church planters with United World Mission in Senegal, Africa. Their primary vehicle of evangelism is farming and agriculture training.
They work in an area known as the Beersheba project. Since 80% of the people are farmers, this type of ministry is vital to the people of Senegal. Aaron is mostly involved in training and discipling Senegalese farmers. They try to get as many Senegalese pastors as possible to be involved in the teaching as well. We touch on subjects like, “What does it look like to be a Christian Senegalese farmer? How do I treat my wife, children, animals, the land and the environment?” All of these are real issues because of the fact that 95% of our interns are coming out of a Muslim background situation. They have no examples in their lives of how to live as a Christian. It is truly amazing to see how the lives of the students are slowly transformed as they read through the Scriptures. One of the tools they use is a program called “Farming God’s Way”.
