Cardinal Aminifu Waganga (Dr. Woodrow Smith Jr.) served the Nation in ways too numerous to count, and with a depth of care, excellence, and impact that has been unsurpassed in the annals of our church's history.  In every region in which he served Cardinal Aminifu became nothing short of a legend for positive and lasting impact he left upon the people with whom he interacted.  So great and so long and so consistent and so dedicated was Cardinal Aminifu's service that it is only fitting that the National service Award given out by the Pan African Orthodox Christian Church be named in his honor.
 
 
"The value of community service is central to our expression of Christian faith.  We must understand and recognize that the people who are being honored are real people who have decided to make a difference."                                                                                   Jaramogi Menelik Kimathi
