Having had the honour and privilege of working alongside Chris for several years in the UK, I relocated to live and work Moscow, Russia.  One of my aims was to introduce the children of The International School of Moscow to this incredible man so his inspirational testimony could be shared with the next generation.  Following our current PSHE theme of ‘Freedom and Forgiveness’, Chris engaged and moved approximately 250 children from Year  1 to 7 in his heart melting story via video conferencing, sharing about his mother, the pencil test and his relationship with the late Nelson Mandela.

Prior to the assembly, each class had prepared a key question to ask Chris about his life and his experience of living through and coming out of Apartheid.  Chris took the trouble of preparing his answers to their questions and invited the children to ask their question during the video conference at the end of his presentation.  Any questions that Chris did not have time to answer verbally, he emailed his answer to each class teacher.

Chris holds his faith in Jesus Christ highly and shares and lives by these Christian values that Nelson Mandela stood for – a man who truly revealed to the world true freedom and forgiveness!

Thank you Chris for sharing this message and positively impacting the lives of the children in Moscow.  I hope that one day you visit us in Moscow to meet these children face to face!
