“The High School Ministry is designed for students to develop a real sense of self and understand their divine purpose as individuals created in the image and likeness of God.
“I recently conducted 10 seminars in Zambia. Over 2,500 high school students attended these events and learned the valuable and transforming NLB Bible-based lessons. Over 350 asked me to pray with them to ask God to intervene in the various challenges they were facing at home and school.
“The visit to the School for the Deaf was the highlight. Ministering to more than 150 students who could not hear my voice or respond to me with their voice was challenging but very rewarding. Through the excellent work of the sign language teachers, the preaching and reception of the gospel of Christ was an incredible experience. The presence of God was evident from their feedback and testimonies.
“Our society often stigmatizes people with disabilities, resulting in many experiencing hurt, loneliness and frustration. The teachers and students were delighted to learn the NLB lessons. I taught them that God loves them. He created them in His image and likeness, just like everyone else - and that disability is not inability.
“I have been encouraged by the Supervisors of Education to continue reaching out to their schools. They love the curriculum. They requested that I conduct at least one 3-day seminar at a central location for all their students. The District Education Board Secretary said, ‘You are doing a very commendable job teaching our students the Word of God to help them grow spiritually. You are inspiring them to serve Christ in all they do and keep them away from vices that might destroy their future. This work you are doing nurtures our schools and allows both schools and communities to flourish with Christian morals.'”
