Kingdom Investment

We recently enjoyed a visit from Archdeacon Paul Dundas to our offices at Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park. Paul is a long-time supporter and friend of CMSI, but on this occasion he was representing Connor Council for Mission, of which he is chair.

After years of partnership with the Diocese of Yei in South Sudan, Connor Diocese generously welcomed Bishop Levi and his wife Agnes during CMSI’s Kingdom Voices event last summer. The new bishop of Yei and his wife were hosted by Agherton Parish and Lisburn Cathedral, with plenty of time to relate with Bishop George and enjoy worship together at what may have been the highlight of the week: the cross-cultural celebration in St. Anne’s Cathedral.

Paul shared with us the moment that he and Bishop Levi realised they had met before, twenty-three years ago! He was telling the Bishop about his visit to Uganda with Armagh Diocese in 2000. During the visit he had the opportunity to teach a class at Bishop Allison Theological College (BATC) in Arua. “I was there!” said Bishop Levi; he was studying at BATC at that time – a delightful coincidence for the now Archdeacon and Bishop to have met before either of them knew the long-term connection they would have.

As part of their partnership, Connor Council for Mission designated a gift for Yei Diocese and for CMSI. Archdeacon Paul presented a cheque for £1750 which was gratefully received. The gift for Yei will soon be transferred for Bishop Levi’s two priority programmes: coffee planting for financial sustainability and clergy training for spiritual growth of the Diocese.

Thank you to Connor Council for Mission for long term partnership with CMSI and for your generosity in supporting us and the Diocese of Yei.
