“Andrew Caplen has a passion for justice ‒ both in its legal sense and as an essential facet of the God’s character and the Christian life”.
These words introduce the blog of Andrew Caplen. Andrew is the Immediate Past President of the Law Society of England and Wales, a dedicated advocate on Access to Justice issues and, most recently, our guest in Mozambique. Since late March he has been travelling Uganda and Mozambique to witness how Christian lawyers organisations are impacting the lives of the poor, vulnerable and marginalised. The Beira office of AMAC was the last port of call on this extensive expedition.
Our visitor was only in Beira for three days but much was accomplished during such a short period of time. This included visits to two universities to speak to law students on Access to Justice, sharing Andrew’s testimony with local Christian lawyers over lunch, multiple meetings, and a seminar on inheritance law with a women’s group from Manga Baptist Church. However, it is Andrew’s own words that best describe his experiences here and in Maputo and Uganda. Therefore, this blog post is dedicated to the blog of another. Please follow the link to Andrew’s blog, called “Justice Matters”. On its pages you will find powerful testimonies of how God is working to transform the lives of those suffering injustice.
Andrew’s visit has been a great encouragement to us. Please pray for him as he returns to the UK and shares his experiences, insights and the importance of justice to God’s kingdom.
