THE SBS and C-TBS (Journey in Brief)
A few days ago,my good friend/co-worker Andrew Kiwanuka and i were invited by the School of Biblical Studies (YWAM/ SBS) in Jinja to share with them and talk about the Genesis of the school of Biblical Studies in Uganda.We had a chance to look back(1989) and summarize that long story to encourage the young women and men as we together continue to serving God in the field of Biblical Studies.
So many things came up, one was the fact that the school has produced so many leaders within Uganda and Internationally in different capacities and in all areas of influence,Pastors,Missionaries,Social Workers,Educationists and many more. Our graduates for all the years have in turn touched and impacted many individuals in many communities. I also remembered and shared my story how i joined this training program,it is now about 33 years when i heard the inner voice that spoke to me” to study and teach the bible for the rest of my life“. That voice/conviction was difficult to believe then especially given the fact that the bible is only 66 books to become a full time calling for life. But our God is all knowing up to today,since 1989, studying and teaching the inductive approach in bible study has been and is my priority. I am thankful to God for making me part of this and also thankful to Him for bringing along so many other friends,co workers who have been and are part of this training these many years.God is good.Many thanks to all our prayer partners and co workers in this field of Biblical Studies.
We have been able to reach some families with food donations and supplies thanks to you our partners,supporters and co-workers.
