Women’s Extension Center Term Report

Women’s Extension Center Term Report

TERM TWO Report:

Term Two of Februray 2019 had a total of 30 students; they came from Moyo camps, Adjumani
camps, Yumbe camps, Rhino camps, Omugo camps, Koboko, Mijale, Arua, Nebbi and Wadlai.

In this class, we had a representation of mixed tribes from both the nationals and the South Sudanese refugees.

Unfortunately, 5 of our students were not able to come this term due to circumstances that befell them. One lost a baby two days after birth, another one lost a son and three of them had family challenges that did not permit them to come. However, we are hoping that they will join us next term. Among the students, we have women leaders, youth leaders and children teachers.

The courses taught were: New Testament survey, how to interpret the Scripture, Agriculture
(basics on chicken rearing), and Doctrine (Master the great Biblical Truth). Besides the class
time, we also had a personal one to one testimonies and prayer needs sharing with each of the
students. It was a great opportunity to know each of the students personally and enabling us to
know how we can pray for them.

About 4 of the students came with their babies who are still infants to be left behind.

Thanks to God for his protection upon the little ones, none of them have been sick.

One of the mothers who is pregnant developed malaria but we thank God she got treated and she joyfully completed her classes.

The term ended well and the next classes begins on 29 April and ends on 12 May 2019. On behalf of the management, we thank God for you for the time you spend daily in prayers and even providing support for the Women Bible Training Institute.

May the Lord Almighty continue to provide for the advancement of His kingdom.

We had great time with the graduates from NEATS staying in Boroli camp. We were laying strategies of reaching the unreached tribes around the camp.  This camp is unique, with 43 tribes in number. We singled out; Anywak, Toposa, Lulubo, kebu, Peri, Didinga, Lotuko, Murule, Baka, Zande, among many.

we can’t wait to see God bless our strategy.

We are working on starting with relationships and family visits, looking forward to having a one day training with these NEATS graduates on the eight steps to effective evangelism.

Keep praying for tomorrow as we head to Mungula refugee settlement.

Women’s Extension Center Term Report

Women’s Extension Center Term Report

The new term for the students who enrolled for the academic year 2018–2019 opened from November 5 -16, 2018.  

We registered 35 women who came from Lamwo, Abim, Adjumani camps, Moyo camps, Koboko, Mijale, Bidibidi camp,  Rhino camp, Arua, Nebbi, Wadilai and Kanungu in Western Uganda. Several tribes from both South Sudan and Uganda were represented.  Amongst which the Dinka, Shilluk and the Nuer enrolled. The Shilluk and Nuer are from the Presbyterian denomination.

The courses taught this term were:

  • Basic Health Education
  • The Old Testament Survey
  • Sermon preparation

About 5 women came with babies as they could not leave their children behind, because there was no one to take care of them.

We thank God for His faithfulness and protection. None became sick, though 1 student who was pregnant got sick and as we could not administer first aid to her, she was referred to the clinic for treatment.

Learning went on well and the next class session will be on February 5, 2019.  

On behalf of the management, we thank you for the support for this term. May God continue to provide for the furtherance of the gospel.

Yours faithfully,
Joyce Muraa Stephen
