Tamale is experiencing the harmattan season with a daily temperature between 39 degrees Celsius and 42 degrees Celsius.
The Institute’s premise is always quiet because students are on recess. The last examination paper was written on the 24th February, 2012 after which students packed for home for their quarterly break. They are to resume on the 19th March, 2012.
Before leaving for the quarterly break, students prepared for their examination each one hoping to win the award for the overall best student. The award is being keenly contested for by most of the students. The idea of awarding academic excellence has served a real purpose of motivating students to learn. We therefore thank those who brought about this very important idea.
Reports reaching Tamale Institute of Biblical Studies indicate that students now on holidays are reviving brethren who have falling away. Management is happy about their effort and has sent messages of commendation to these students.
Two of the past students, Stephen Abugbilla and John Avoka, who are presently preaching near Bawku in the Upper East Region of Ghana, are planning to organize a Seminar for the spiritual growth of the congregations in and around Bawku and have invited instructors of Tamale Institute of Biblical Studies to assist. It is hoped that by this achievement that envisaged development of the Church would be on course.
The Board wishes to call the attention of all to pray for the success of the work here in the Northern part of Ghana. In July, 2012, two devoted American Preachers would be in Tamale to assist with the preaching of the gospel and it is our prayer also that the Almighty Lord should be with them, provide all their needs, protect them bless them for a successful stay in Tamale Institute of Biblical Studies- Ghana.
