September 9, 2016 we hosted friends from the Hills Church of the United States of America, Ron Holland, David Meyer and Don box. These people have been helping and supporting LivinStone and recently donated for our new girl’s hostel.
The day started with a tour around the University campus, including all departments, followed by a visit to the newly developed hostel and the new campus site. The guests later joined our Human Resource Workshop which was held for all the Head of Departments and was presented by David Meyer.
Meet Don Box
A member of The Hills Church, Don has been in love with LivingStone since it was only a dream of the missionaries in Mbale and in Kenya, and it is such a blessing to see him back in Mbale today to see the blossoming of the dream into a strong university. He is a retired engineer living in North Richland Hills, Texas, USA, and he has been involved in many LivingStone Board Members activities and supporting university in many ways.
Don recently donated to the building of the new girl’s dormitory by selling his car that he loved the most to raise funds for LivingStone International University. When asked why? He said “Sitting back in my office, I realized that out there I have this beautiful red car that I love to drive, and I asked myself, why treat myself better if I sell the car it could enable me to raise funds for LivingStone”
“It is always my pleasure, and it gives me great joy, to contribute to the development of this university as we continue to transform Africa through quality, Christ-centered higher education. I want to encourage you to look beyond your own resources and pray about your responsibility to support the university.”
LivingStone International University greatly appreciate the efforts of our partners and friends who extend support to our programs. We strongly believe that it is through partnerships with such organizations and people that LivingStone is enable to empower young leaders and to transform Africa through high-quality, Christ-centered education.
People like Don Box and others at The Hills Church are dedicated to empowering youth to change the world, making significant investments to transform Africa. It is because of these incomparable contributions, which have allowed LivingStone to expand, to reach more people, and to fulfil its mission in the world.
