Water Driller, CEO to Speak March 24 at Martinsburg Church
The community is invited to hear Jim Hocking, founder and CEO of Water for Good, a water-drilling ministry in the Central African Republic (CAR), on Sunday, March 24, at Martinsburg Grace Brethren Church.
Hocking will speak during the ABF hour from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the multipurpose room (old sanctuary). At noon, everyone is invited to a carry-in dinner in the same location. An informal question-and-answer session will follow.
Hocking grew up in the Central African Republic, the son of Grace Brethren missionaries Don and Betty Hocking, who fostered in him a deep love for the country and its people. After attending Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, he returned to the CAR in 1977 with his new bride, Faye. The Hockings began their work training leaders for youth ministry, then followed up with a literacy campaign that launched 200 schools across the CAR, as well as provided bilingual literature in both French and Sango, the primary local language. Over the next 20 years the Hockings devoted their careers and lives to CAR, raising their four children there.
