Graduation Day “Rooted in the teachings of Christ”

Oct 26, 2018

In September 2018, Namikango hosted a graduation ceremony for students from the various Village Bible Schools. We made a concentrated effort to help all the current students complete their requirements for graduation. In order to do this Namikango held intensive courses at the Mission campus for students who were close to graduation. Fifty-six students attended those spring classes, and Namikango had the honor of graduating them all.

In addition to these VBS students, one student in our distance learning program also graduated.

It was a really wonderful day. We rented robes for the day to make it more festive. Each student brought their family to the ceremony. Several chiefs and community leaders attended. Including Namikango staff, there were over two hundred people who came to celebrate these students’ achievements. After the program, everyone was treated to a delicious lunch and many, many photos. This event was a good reminder of why the schools exist in the first place. This diploma instills confidence and Biblical wisdom to men and women, preparing them for good work, rooted in the teachings of Christ for His Kingdom in Malawi.
