My Time in Africa — Teaching in Ethiopia!

Friends: I’m back in the States after almost a month in Africa! If you prayed for me, thank you! I met some fantastic believers, tried some ethnic food, and thoroughly enjoyed working with church leaders in both Zambia and Ethiopia.

In Ethiopia, my class of 20-25 consisted of church leaders and we covered my book DocTALK. The students willingly broke into small groups to discuss how the doctrines of the Christian faith apply to their situations.

Our plan is to return in August (Linda will teach some English to these students in the afternoon) and then a third time in the future. I was humbled at the quality of these leaders and am grateful to Mulu and his vision for the gospel in Addis Ababa and surrounding areas.

I was overwhelmed with the amount of people in Addis, the capital. I would love to invite any of you who wish to financially contribute to the good work they are doing. Donations may be sent to:CMML, Inc. P.O. Box 13 Spring Lake, NJ 07762-0013. There are so many needs at this important school. Mark your donation attention to the principle Mulugeta Ashagre (email: mulugetaashagre1@gmail.com). I am more than happy to answer any questions you have.

Again, blessings on you all for lifting me up in prayer! Here’s a short video clip of some of the children in Ethiopia clapping for me!

My Time in Africa — Teaching a Master’s Class in Zambia!

I arrived at the Lusaka airport in Zambia on October 19th. I was picked up by a couple of brothers from the Ambassador International University. An hour and a half later we were way out in the bush at the school. The school, sponsored by Gospelink, has about 90 buildings and I was housed at a nice “visitors’ lodge” with a private room and bath.

My class consisted of eight Master’s level students. They were a joy as we went through three books that I had written: When Temptation Strikes (on the doctrine of temptation and sin), The Forgotten Third: Developing a Relationship with God the Holy Spirit (not yet published), and Unlike Jesus: Let’s Stop Unfriending the World. These men tackled the content and we had wonderful discussions about the implications for their ministry in Zambia.

To any of you who prayed for my time in Zambia, thank you! I will shortly write a brief report of the 2nd half of my trip, teaching in Ethiopia!
