Hartford Memorial Baptist Church has decided to contribute to the restoration project in Egypt named after Dr. Asa Hilliard who was well respected by our Pastor Emeritus Dr. Charles G. Adams. This is the only archeological excavation led by an African-American (Dr. Anthony Browder) of a 25th dynasty temple in Luxor, Egypt.
Hartford used to go to Egypt annually as part of the Kentake Rites of Passage academy founded by the late Dr. Kay Lovelace. The girls now travel to The Gambia, West Africa for Rites of Passage, so Hartford's involvement with this project keeps the memory of this program and Dr. Lovelace alive.
Watch this video to learn more about the restoration project.
Here are some pictures from the last trip Hartford's Kentake Rites of Passage academy went to Egypt along with some recent Hartford leaders in Egypt. African Relief Ministry VP Leslie Andrews was invited to speak in Egypt for the Michigan Women Leaders delegation and our own Dr. Brandon Waddles from the music ministry recently in Egypt.
