Extensions Centers Update

Extensions Centers Update

Thank God by His grace we had 212 students registered in 12 Extension Centers last term. These were; Alwi, Ayilo, Belameling, Djalasiga, Maaji, Morobi, Palorinya, Paidha, Rhino Camp, Yoyo and Paloch, South Sudan. 


ACHIEVEMENTS:

  • Students were generally equipped to be able to understand the Old Testament books and Hermeneutics. They applauded these topics.
  • Their understanding of the Bible has increased like never before
  • They reached 123 with the Gospel and 15 people gave their lives to Jesus Christ. Three were restored to the faith.
  • We have 33 students ready for graduation, 15 from Paidha and 18 from  Paloch, South Sudan.

CHALLENGES:

  • Sickness has been rampant among both students and teachers.
  • Lack of enough bibles; in both English and local dialects such as Bari, Ma’di, Dinka, Arabic, Alur, Swahili, Ligala, Acholi and Lugbara.
  • I also had challenges in being able to reach all the schools as they open and run in a space of two weeks concurrently and they are located in different districts and countries.

PRAYER POINTS:

  • Pray for next term and more activities are going to done especially outreaches.
  • Pray for the challenges that God will open our eyes to work better for his glory.
  • Pray for the upcoming graduations in Paloch and Paidha.

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

Thank God for His goodness today I am able to reach and see the NEATS Extension Center in Paidha and I am so impressed by what I saw – men and women who desire to grow in the word of God.

Thank God for your prayer and support to the school. The teachers here are Opakrwoth Samuel and Fustino Ringe – please pray for these men. They have three amazing men, two cannot read and write and one cannot write but came to the school and is now growing strong in their faith.

David Kimbo’s Story

David Kimbo’s Story

My name is Kimbo David Wani. I came from Jerusalem Baptist Church, Morobi Zone 3 Waka. I am still single. Before Christ, I used to like night dances, fights and many other bad things.

There are two people that influenced me to join NEATS. The first one was a friend who one time went through NEATS training. The way he could present the Gospel was so admirable to me. Pastor Kenyi Clement was also doing the same thing.

This forced me to ask them where they got such knowledge of preaching in such admirable way? They then told me that they did their Biblical training in NEATS.

This was at the time that I had accepted Christ and my family had abandoned me. I was living in the Church. When I presented my desires of joining the Bible School, the Church accepted to send me to the Bible School. After receiving Christ as personal Lord and Savior I left all the desires of all evil things. I now have the love of God in me. I can differentiate between good and evil things.

My thirst after finishing my course in NEATS is to go and do Door to Door Evangelism in order to win many souls to Christ.

Thanks to Empower One and NEATS for granting me this chance to learn God’s Word.
