Bible Study in Ateso

It was a little over one year ago that I was sitting in Nairobi waiting on College Hills’ Team to arrive while watching my future husband pass the late hours by translating a simple Bible curriculum into his tribe’s language. After many months of hard work, those deep in the village learning organic farming from our students are now also… (more…)

Never too Late for Chrsitmas

Recognize these boxes? Christmas came a bit late this year, but late is better than never! It has always been my dream to give one of these boxes away after all the ones I filled as a child, so you can imagine how excited I was when one of the local bishops called John on the phone and asked if… (more…)

They have been enjoying… (more…)

For the past three months, there has been a team visiting from Slavic Missionary Bible School (SMBS). One day, they wondered upon Eli’s home while taking a shortcut from their house to the vegetable market. Eli’s aunt persistently invited them  to come and eat dinner at her home, so they used the opportunity to start a Bible Study once a… (more…)
