”We wanted to express our thanks to the Lord for His provision throughout phase 1 of our building project.” Rev Tim Anderson, St Elizabeth’s Church, Belfast.
God’s goodness to his people in a church in Belfast has been multiplied, through their gratitude and generosity, and spread across the globe to demonstrate his goodness in Africa. The thanksgiving of St Elizabeth’s Church, Dundonald, has resulted in thousands of pounds being given to one of AID’s projects which will strengthen the Church in South Sudan, by training pastor trainers.
We are overwhelmed by the generosity of St Elizabeth’s Church in Belfast and thank God for their faith and his goodness to them, us and his people in South Sudan.
”They are a fragrant offering, an acceptable sacrifice, pleasing to God. And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 4:18-19
Bishop Gwynne College
In South Sudan, Christians and pastors are numerous, but few pastors have had any training and most Christians do not own a Bible. The project that St Elizabeth’s Church are supporting will train lecturers at the Bishop Gwynne Theological College in Juba, South Sudan to Masters level. This will enable lecturers to teach to a higher level, helping pastors to better understand and interpret God’s Word and teach it to their congregations. The faith of all (lecturers, pastors and congregations) will be deepened and more firmly rooted in the Bible as a result. Lecturers will also learn how to train up others to be lecturers so that, over a period of 10 years, the college will become self-sustaining.
