In the last year or so we’ve sometimes asked you to pray for Learning that LASTS training courses that have taken place in East Africa. Whilst this course is being run around the world, recently one of the training staff from Nairobi, visited us and we were so excited by his feedback that we decided to pass it on so that you can be encouraged that your prayers are being answered!
Learning that LASTS is a week-long training programme which equips teachers to communicate, challenge, inspire and teach their students better. Due to the high demand for this sort of training, as many as six or seven of these courses have been run over the past 18 months. The courses have been open to staff and local churches as well as partner organisations. Several church leaders as well as personnel from partner organisations have profited from taking the course.
A member of one of our partner organisations used the principles learnt in Learning that LASTS in South Sudan and said that it was like a light went on as those he was training understood much better what he was aiming to communicate.
One church leader who runs discipleship courses for men in his church said that the year before he took Learning that LASTS, he had 16 men finish his discipleship course. The year after he took the course he had 60 complete the training, and this year he is hoping for 90!
Praise God with us for how he is equipping those who teach and train his church.
A Learning that Lasts course was held at the end of November in Nairobi, Kenya. Please pray for:
- the participants to put into practice what they have learnt
- fruit from their ministries as they communicate more clearly and train more effectively.
Learning that Lasts is run in the UK too. Please pray for a course which is currently underway at Redcliffe College in Gloucester:
- ask God to help the participants to understand the content well and for it to impact the way that they teach and train.
