Deep in the Bush

May 15, 2017

The Bible schools started again last month, with twenty schools teaching the first class of the 3-year program – The Prophets.

During the past three weeks we have been visiting some of these schools while they are in session. We are able to talk to the teacher as well as the students to get an idea how well the school is operating and we try to encourage the students to continue working hard in their studies.

Visiting these schools is a good reminder of how important it is to train church leaders for lives of service. The schools and churches in the villages are doing amazing things and the Mission’s purpose is to support and encourage this vital work that is happening at the village level. It is always amazing to travel deep in the bush and discover Christian communities trying to serve the Kingdom of God.

I am reminded of the Psalmist who asked, “Where can I flee from your presence?” These remote villagers respond in earnest, “Nowhere! God can be found, even here."
