From the Inside Flap:

As the "center" of Christianity has moved south to Africa, Asia, and Latin America, what gifts can churches in different parts of the world share with each other? Are churches in Europe and North America willing and able to receive as well as give?

Who's rich? In what? Who's needy? In what way? How is sharing different than giving? How do we overcome the real obstacles that obstruct this essential part of being the church?

An African and an American reflect together.

Published in cooperation with Mennonite World Conference

The authors hope that "this book can be used by churches and individuals of any denomination who are interested in similar goals."

About the Author:


Severely injured in a car accident while in college, Dr. Pakisa K. Tshimika changed his educational plans from becoming a surgeon to earning a doctorate in public health.

Today Pakisa is Executive Director and founder of Mama Makeka House of Hope, based in Fresno, California. Named for Pakisa’s mother, the project is devoted to health, education, and community work, especially in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Central Valley of California.

Pakisa serves also as Associate General Secretary of Mennonite World Conference, a global network involving national churches in 75 countries. Pakisa works from his current home in Fresno, California, and whenever possible, from his original home in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
