The November/December 2005 issue of FGBC World carried a story about Leo Boyer, of Winona Lake, IN and his desire to design and promote a Christmas lawn display which more properly reflects the true meaning of Christmas. (See Lawn Display Presents Christ, Helps Africans.)
With a portion of the sale of each display going to support seminary and Bible college student scholarships in the Central African Republic, Boyer was able recently to present to Grace Brethren International Missions a check for $350 to be given to Dr. Francois Ngoumape, director of the Grace Brethren schools at Bata, CAR, for use in training African pastors and Bible teachers.
Leo Boyer’s father, Dr. James Boyer, was a longtime Grace College and Seminary faculty member who served as a guest teacher at the African school, and Leo wanted a portion of the sales of the lawn displays to further the ministry in that way. He invites anyone who may have an interest in assisting in either the production or the distribution of the displays for future years to contact him by calling (574) 267-3432.
