STRIKE ENDS AT MEDUNSA
Pretoria, 12 August 2014. Our prayers and compassion go out to students at the University of Limpopo, Medunsa campus, as lectures are expected to resume this week, ending a two-week strike at the medical campus.
The university administration informed students via text messages on Monday that lectures will re-start on Wednesday 14 August, following an agreement reached between management and the student representatives. Included in the agreement was an official announcement by the President of the SRC, indicating that students would cease all protests and vandalism. This is yet to be released.
Since the beginning of the protest action, many innocent students have been forced to vacate the university residences; as a result their academics have been adversely affected. “We live in a society where education is the most valuable resource, augmenting our understanding of the world around us. It also serves as a building block of the Anglican Students Federation. Therefore, we encourage members to pray for tolerance, liberality and understanding among all parties involved in the strike", says Gauteng-Mpumalanga chairperson Ngata Holele.
The region also appeals to members in the province to continue to pray for peace at Medunsa. As students in the Anglican Church, we are advocated to be at the forefront of transformation in our communities through Christian values, ethics and lifestyles.
Throughout the week, all Ansocs in Gauteng-Mpumalanga will have special prayer segments for Medunsa during their Bible study sessions and more activity will continue collectively on social media.

ANGLICAN SOCIETY (AN'SOC)
Becoming a tertiary students is an achievement to most of us, having completed high school and now at a stage where you have to choose a career that will take you forward in life. However, all this excitement comes with not only academic choices but also social choices. We often shift aside our faith issues and focus more on making friends.
The Anglican Society strives to provide you a place where you will find a balance of friendship, worship, bible study, fellowship, advise, growth in faith and healing.
So look for the sign, “AN'SOC” and register with your Christian Home Away from home
Yes Operation Abasazi/recruitment is continuing around our campuses up to the second week of February 2014. During this time let us contiinue flying the ASF/An'soc flag high, let us make stalls with An'soc information available in all our campus corners and also posters and fliers about An'soc above all let us make sure that each and every Anglican who enters our campus see the availability of An'soc. Operation Abasazi/Recruitment is the most important event in the life of ASF and failure to execute this event will lead to our brothers and sisters being taken by other structures. Operation Abasazi/Recruitment its not for the Executive but for all the members and friends including chaplains. Let us wear our T-shirts with pride during this time of the year to market our organisation. Some of our Brothers and Sisters are coming from far looking for school and they will be needing accomodation, I request that we find a way to assist them.
