Graduate featured in Christianity Today

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. –Geneva College graduate, Cassandra Zinchini ‘02, will have a two page article published in the January 2007 issue of Christianity Today entitled "Surprised by friendship: Discovering where hope begins in a village in Mozambique." The article writes of Zinchini’s experiences in the former Portuguese colony of Mozambique on Africa’s southeast coast last fall. Zinchini stayed with a ministry that ran an orphanage, primary school, and Bible college, where she taught two classes to train future Mozambican pastors.

In the article, she writes, “I came to Mozambique looking for hope and found that in Africa, as in America, hope begins in relationship, the giving of ourselves. Even the poor have something to give—and we all have a great deal to gain.”

Cassandra Zinchini is now doing postgraduate work in development studies at the University of London and writing a book on the rural poor.
