Azusa Pacific University Honors ELI Founder Don RogersOctober 23, 2012 by Angela Vincent
This past weekend, ELI Founder Don Rogers was honored as the Alumni of the year at Azusa Pacific University. At a dinner for over 800 guests, Don had the privilege of sharing about the amazing work God is doing through ELI in East and Central Africa. He shared the story of when God first captures his heart in college and he told God he would go anywhere to serve Him. Soon after, God confronted Don with an opportunity to go to Tanzania. Don remembered how that first trip changed his life, causing him to see the impact of true empowerment rather than hand-outs. ELI was birthed out of the desire to see lives transformed in a holistic way.
We are so proud of the way Don has allowed God to work in and through him, both here in the US and in Africa. To see Don in action in Africa, check out the video below.
