Your contribution to this library will help to educate young pastors at the Providence Industrial Mission, just outside of Blantyre, Malawi.The anticipated state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility will celebrate the life and legacy of the late Bishop Michael Lee Graves.There will also be a children's division.This library will be situated in a rural area of a country that is impoverished , yet progressing in training Christian leaders for a predominantly Christian country .Classes and lectures will be held here.There will be solar panels to reduce the cost of electricity. Two bedrooms are on site for visiting pastors , lecturers or pastors on sabbatical leave.There will be visual media opportunities to learn about Bishop Graves; his life and “ministry that matters”. The property site is beautifully located next to a river. What a great opportunity to continue and honor the life and legacy of the Graves.

The founder of the Temple Church in Nashville, Tennessee, Bishop Graves was a pastor, teacher, visionary, philanthropist , social activist and mentor to hundreds of men and women. He was a positive thinker and scholar who believed in the value of education.Therefore, he loved, read and collected many books.After his death in 2004, his wife, Dr. Eleanor Graves, also and educator and mentor, realized that these books were not being used. She is donating all of them to this project, proposed by one of the "sons" of Bishop's ministry, Dr. Joe Albert Bush. Dr. Bush is the pastor of the Walker Memorial Baptist Church, Bronx, New York and CEO of So Send I You, a global Christian missions organization committed to fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ by educating, nurturing and cultivating missional leaders and congregations.

I am one of the “sons” of Bishop Graves. He took the time and energy to mentor me. I am now a Pastor who is grateful for his life and love. I will give more soon and involve my church. All glory to God.
