Above: Dr. George Kalantzis and I by the tree under which I stood 11 years ago dreaming with friends about what would become IAFR. The tree is in Kenya’s beautiful Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
Eleven years ago, I was here with Kenyan friends and a Nigerian/Filipino couple with whom my wife and I had taken a 3 day safari to dream together what it might look like to create an international mission agency designed for ministry among refugees. It was then that the seed of what became IAFR was planted.
It seems right that a tree is at the beginning of the story of IAFR.
It was meaningful to stand there again today with Dr. Kalantzis – who was appointed IAFR’s Senior Fellow for Theological Development at the beginning of the month.
