Charles Heberth emceed the commencement service for the 2017 graduation of the Arusha Bible School and the Andrew Connelly School of Preaching on Saturday, December 2, 2017, in Kisongo, Tanzania. It was standing room only, as Christians from all over the region came to watch these brothers and sisters graduate. The graduation began with a few moments of silence in memory of Cy Stafford, who passed from this life since the last class’ graduation.
The staff and faculty at the school, Heberth, Ahimidiwe Kimaro, Desdery Massawe, and Michael Mitalani, David Bayi, Mason Norman, and Todd Storks, were on hand to congratulate these 15 men from ACSOP and 5 from Arusha Bible School. The graduation highlights the importance of the work going on in this part of Tanzania. Bible studies and baptisms occur each week and the dedication of the men and women to teaching the distinctive truth of New Testament Christianity is most clear.
