(Africa)–Our newscast begins today in Durban where the African heads of State are gearing up for the inaugural African Union Summit. The meetings will focus on the political, social and economic development of the African continent under the theme of peace. Worldwide Christian Schools’ president Scott VanderKooy is optimistic. “We see it as a good first step. Anytime there’s relationship building within a continent like Africa, good things can come from it.
