On behalf of the Association for Life of Africa, we wish to inform you that registration and all payments for the upcoming Pan African for Life Conference begins today on the 1st February 2018, and it will close on the 30th March 2018. Kindly, we would like you therefore to have more detailed information to help you register appropriately with us and the following information will be of great help to you:

THEME
The theme of our event this year is "Discipling Nations", coming from Matthew 28:19.  This means that the gospel of Life giving too needs to be reached to all Nations. Jesus Christ commanded us to do so. This will be our 5th Pan African for Life Conference, and we are excited to have you be a part of it. AFLA is expecting to have between 250 to 300 delegates from different parts of the world.

CONFERENCE DATE
The Conference will begin on May 9th and ends on May 11th 2018. This means that you are supposed to arrive on the 8th of May 2018 and leave on the 12th of May 2018.  Checking in will begin at 2PM and checking out will be at 12 Noon. Our planning committee in Nigeria has worked so hard to bring you an exceptional event. You don’t want to miss our Opening ceremonies on 8th in the evenings and our closing banquet on 11th May 2018 in the evening, where Motivational Keynote speaker Rev. John Ensor will share on WHY HUMAN LIFE SHOULD BE VALUED AND WHY WE SHOULD GET INVOLVED.

VENUE
The conference venue will be at the Daughters of Divine Love retreat and conference center. It is in Abuja, Nigeria. The place has been believed to have hosted very successful conferences and it’s safe.

SPEAKERS
We will have both international and local speakers conducting workshops whose goal is to meet our ministry and center needs. This year will have more workshops.

VISA
We also need to be aware that some of the nations will need Visas when entering Nigeria and we therefore inform you that AFLA will help with invitation letters and all necessary documents for you to secure Visas. So, you may kindly get back to us if you need a letter. Some nations won’t require Visas but you may still need an invitation letter to enter into other countries, so still, kindly you may request for that from us.

AFLA Newsletter: Reaching the Batwa People of Uganda

Update from AFLA President Barbra N. Mwansa:
 
"Afla continues to be excited about what God continues to do on the continent of Africa. Just like our mission, we have continued to present the trainings on the sanctity of human life to all nations, even in inhabited places. The sanctity of human life message brings light to all darkness, breaks the chains of the evil one and saves lives, even the unborn from abortion.

Afla, in partnership with Beautiful Feet International, has an opportunity to train the Batwa people of Uganda. From history, the Batwa people have their own creation story. According to the Batwa people, their creator gave some people height, others he gave them prosperous land, but to the Batwa there were no more such gifts to give out, so he gave them the rainforest. When they were evicted by the government in the 1990’s, they felt God had rejected them.
 
It is then the greatest opportunity for Afla and Beautiful Feet to visit and train with God’s love and message of life.
 
You all faithful and good friends of Afla have continued to stand with us as we continue to serve on the continent of Africa. Your prayers and support are always highly appreciated. We value your support and prayers so much; without your effort we would have not have 258 affiliates on the continent of Africa.
 
Thanks a lot for moving with us."

Missionaries for Life Converge in Livingstone

As spring turned to summer, it was time for the annual Pan-African Conference, hosted by Association for Life of Africa (AFLA). This year's event was held in Livingstone, Zambia—a fitting place for trail-blazing missionaries to meet.

Heartbeat International was on site, standing alongside our brothers and sisters for life in every corner of the globe.

This year's conference, "Breaking New Grounds in the Kingdom of God," included missionaries for life from 12 countries and was keynoted by former Heartbeat International board member, Rev. John Tabor.

The represented countries were Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, Nigeria, Botswana, Ecuador, Brazil, and the U.S.

"It's an exciting time for AFLA as we continue to grow and adapt," AFLA President Barbra Nalavwe Mwanza said to open the five-day conference. "We must remain always adaptable, motivated, responsive, and client-focused."

Topics of focus for the conference included, "Where is the Church and the Theology of Life?", "Abortion in Africa," "Counseling Toolbox," "Healing the Wounds," "The Boardmanship," "How to Start a Centre," Natural Family Planning, Sexual Integrity, and Fundraising. But Africa, as Barbra pointed out to lead off the conference, could not hope to solve these problems without addressing the underlying life-and-death issue of the sanctity of human life.

Heartbeat International Director of Marketing and Communications Debora R. Myles brought her expertise to the conference, presenting a keynote entitled, "The ABCs of Marketing with Emphasis on Websites," and a workshop called "Fundraising Essentials."

In addition to Myles and Rev. Tabor, Lorraine Gariboldi, author and founding member of Heartbeat International affiliate Life Center of Long Island, spoke at the event, drawing from her leadership experience in a three-location setting.
