‘VCSL’s African Fellowship was for me a way to refill my Spirit.’ 

Clement fled his country due to religious persecution in 2005. He is limited in his daily activities, because it is illegal for asylum seekers to work, so he is fully dependent on government and NGO assistance. He came to VCSL in 2008, he was so inspired by our community support work, he began studying at the Charis Bible College and finally graduated with a Diploma in Biblical Studies this year. He wishes to continue studying and pursue a master’s degree to become a minister of God’s Word and empower other refugees.
