Message from the Director

I am excited at the thought that you are considering coming to Africa to engage in what I know will be a life-changing experience for you. Having been born in South Africa and lived here all my life, I am able to guide you through the challenges and opportunities of a visit to this beautiful country, and it will be my duty and joy to pass on to you my passion for my continent. As I share the responsibility of teaching you, alongside the hand-picked adjunct faculty from South Africa and abroad, I know that you will gain insights into both the Scriptures and your various subjects, which you would never otherwise have had.

I have also had the privilege of travelling widely in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and North America, so I know what it is to be jet-lagged and to experience “culture shock.” Coming as you do from a First World country, there will be some adaptations you will need to make, but I am convinced that you will find those experiences enriching. If you have any concerns, feel free to write me at the email below and I will answer your questions as honestly and clearly as I can.

My prayer is that your visit to South Africa will have such an impact on you spiritually that you will at least pray for this land for the rest of your life... or perhaps even come back to help make a difference!

Yours in the Family of God,

Dr. Reg Codrington
Executive Director
APU South Africa Semester
