Broadhurst Adventists to build P13m community centre

The Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr Margaret Nasha, on Sunday pledged a donation of P5,000 as she led a deputation of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Botswana at a ground-breaking ceremony to mark the building of a P13 million community centre.

The building will serve as a community succour centre for anyone in need of such attention in and around Gaborone.Nasha said the project comes at a time large numbers of youths in Botswana are going through social challenges."Due to desperation, suicide has become common among the youth these days and the cure cannot be obtained from clinics or anywhere else because the only thing people need is care and support," she said.

She noted that some of the people she was talking about could be involved in the idea of constructing a succour centre.The project is funded by the Broadhurst congregation for which Nasha quoted the Book of James 2:14-15: "What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him? "If a brother or sister is without clothing and in need of daily food, and one of you says to them, 'Go in peace, be warmed and be filled,' and yet you do not give them what is necessary for their body, what use is that?"
