I greet you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. It’s my hope that everyone is doing well in the Lord’s work. Now, I would like to share with you a short report concerning graduation this year. It is a good time that God has given us to see another group of students starting a new page in the big task given by our Lord, Jesus Christ – that is to go and preach the Gospel without forgetting the task of teaching all: “This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.Joshua 1:8
The School had three different levels of graduates. We had two students from the masters program: Wililiam R. Korio and Duncan Henry. We also had eleven from the bachelors program From Kenya we had: Abraham Tanui, Harrison Kirui, John Nduati, Nathan Oloumu, Philip Kipsang, and Pius Ngetich. From Tanzania we had: Daudi Daniel, Martin Tluway, and Stephano Tluway, and Jeremiah Mahu. We also had one from the Democratic Republic of the Congo: Bahati Rene. The Tanzania 2000 Mission has two sisters schools, which were also involved in this graduation. They are the Arusha Bible School and the Kilimanjaro Bible School. The Arusha Bible School under the administration of brother Desdery Massawe, had four students who graduated with a certificate of completeion, and the Kilimanjaro Bible school also had four graduates by the leadership of brother Josephat Massawe. In this case we witnessed Twenty-one students graduating, ready to serve our Lord. This was great privilege in the kingdom.
It’s my great hope that these men have all the skills needed to reach lost souls. This has been realized by the performance in the class and outside in the field while they were still students. These ACSOP students were involved in the Arusha campaign, which led over sixty people to Christ. God is being glorified to the gentiles through this school.
First we thank God and our Lord Jesus for these wonderful events. Likewise we want to thank our brother Ralph Williams for being with us, for teaching last course for the graduates, and also for being our keynote speaker in the graduation. Also ACSOP thanks all brothers and sisters who are not sleepingin order to look for ways that they can fund the school so it can operate. Again these all would not be done without your efforts, also ACSOP faculty and the best missionary team we have. God is blessing the church abundantly on this side because of your efforts. Please continue to pray for us as we serve Him together.
