In past roles as a leader, I was encouraged to blog about the challenges, ideas, and happenings. As you can see in posts below, I started this blog over three years ago. I kept at it for a while, and then abandoned it. I did process several things I was learning, however, and hopefully helped a few other people, too.
Since our arrival in Swaziland two months ago, Rachael has been blogging quite a bit about our personal life over at the blog we share. We frequently posted to that blog in our previous trip and I still post there (but not as often as Rachael).
But reviving this blog has become important to me. Not because I don’t like our personal one, but because I want a community to help facing some of the challenges of a new world and the college which I will soon lead.
I’m not good a titles, but have tried to be clever with my title– Brad Carter’s African Education. My setting is African Higher Christian Education and I’m also being educated myself as a newcomer to Swaziland and ACC. I plan to blog about a variety of challenges, successes, and things I’m learning (coming soon — a series on the process of macadamia nuts from ACC to HEB).
Here’s your invitation to join me. I have a lot to say. I hope I find time to blog the thoughts and get your help as we make an impact on the future of Africa through African Christian College.
