My prayer is that God will continue to lead us and empower us to transform the world in Jesus name."

As a member of the Africa University Board of Trustees, one of the responsibilities Bishop Trimble has is keeping his thumb on the pulse of Zimbabwe's first and thriving private institution. Along with his wife and partner in ministry, First Lady Racelder Grandberry-Trimble, the bishop had a chance to spend some personal time with devoted faculty members and students. The Trimbles are seen in the image above enjoying a kodak moment with Gift Elisha, llencia da Felix Berito, and Natalie Musiyarira (L-R), exemplary students who have been rewarded with scholarships funded through the Africa University Campaign, with contributions from many of the local church around the Indiana Conference. 

The bishop stated, "As I talk with students and see the work that Africa university is doing, I am proud to say I am from Indiana. There are 8,000 graduates serving all over Africa and across our world. My prayer is that God will continue to lead us and empower us to transform the world in Jesus name."
