Dunlap's Dumpling Night to Sponsor Student Missions
The Bootsma Bookstore Café at Trinity Christian College will be hosting another Dunlap’s Dumpling Night! This event will help sponsor three students travelingto Malawi, Africa, to work with local business men and women to improve their communities.
Dinner will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, October 17. Cost is $12 for adults; $8 for children 12 and under. The Bootsma Bookstore Café is located at 6513 W. 123rd Street in Palos Heights, Illinois. Call 708.239.3976 for more information.
The evening is sponsored by the College’s Rotaract Club. This service-oriented club is connected with Rotary International, a service organization found in communities around the world. Rotary International seeks to promote service among college and university students and does so through the establishment of Rotaract clubs.
Rotaract’s international project includes a partnership with the Christian Entrepreneur Association of Malawi (CHREAM), an organization in Malawi, Africa, one of the world’s poorest countries. CHREAM is a microfinance membership group that provides modest loans to those in Malawi seeking to start or grow businesses. Trinity has sent students to Malawi twice in the past two years, helping to train business men and women there who seek to improve their business skills and take advantage of CHREAM’s lending program.
Dr. Lynn White, professor of accounting, will accompany three Trinity students to Malawi in January 2009 to provide accounting training to CHREAM leaders who will, in turn, be able to train their members.
