The Tamale Institute of Biblical Studies was a place to be this week; some individuals in the towns in the three regions in the Northern part of the country, past and present students of the Institution and members of the two congregations in Tamale were beneficiaries of a 2-day Workshop sponsored by Bear Valley Bible Institute International and Healing Hands International (USA).
The Resource Person was Brother Ebenezer Udofiah who travelled from Nariobi, Kenya to Tamale, Ghana to share his rich knowledge and experience in Food Security with us. We are very appreciative of the effort of all who contributed to this very successful workshop.
The Workshop which was residential was attended by sixty- five brethren from 37 congregations. Participants were taken through the theories and practical of making composting, raising beds, and farm management. With local materials and a few item brought by Healing Hands International, four beds were made by the participants under the guidance of the facilitator, Brother Ebenezer Udofia.
Thanks to our lovely facilitator for making farming very interesting. Throughout the workshop no one slept because of his motivative skills in teaching.
Our Sisters also contributed immensely to the success of the workshop. Food was always ready on time and of good taste.
The Institute has a land which is approximately one and half acre on campus reserved for this Drip Irrigation Farm Participants were permitted to ask questions for clarification.
Every individual participant was actively involved in the demonstration when we got to the field.
Our able Resource Person took time to answer all the questions. Bed are ready for seedling planting. Everyone was full of joy after the training.
Another thing which is worth mentioning is the making of compose manure. At the end four beds were made and planting was also done.
We once again extend our Greetings from Tamale, the capital city of the Northern Region of Ghana to all our beloved brethren.
All past students of the Institute were full of smiles when it was announced at the recent graduation ceremony that sponsors provided bicycles to enhance their effort to propagating of the gospel.
In all, thirty-six bicycles were given to the past students.
It is hoped that with the aid of these bicycles, preachers can now ride to nearby towns and villages to do evangelism and visitations.
The board of directors, staff, and the entire student body of the Institute wish to express a profound thanks and appreciation to the coordinator, brother Steven Ashcraft, and the sponsors of the Institute.
There were enough bicycles for all.
