Training and Education

This broad category of activities covers a host of settings in which associates are helping others learn. One associate took books to a resource-starved seminary and got this response from a thankful student:

“Sir, before you came, we had no books; now, we have five more books than we ever have had before … and we never had any textbooks! We cannot thank you enough!”

The Bible is at the core of our training, as evidenced by this reaction of a Latvian pastor to a women’s seminar given by associate Shelly Volkhardt:

“Thank you so much for your God-filled words and testimony. You brought God’s Word and will alive in a special way….You are God’s gifted and loving messenger sent to declare His love and grace to His beloved children.”

In Ethiopia, Julie Field works with 150 8th-12th grade girls in a tutoring program called PinkGirl, which readies the young women for college. 100% of the PinkGirl 12th-graders have gone on to college for the last two years. Pretty amazing considering that only 20% of girls even graduate from high school in the country!
