Training of Evangelists in Kibondo, Western Tanzania

We praise God for the training course for evangelists of the Western Zone of Tanzania, which took
place successfully from 11-16 June 2014. This was the first of a series of training courses to take place in all 5 zones of Tanzania.
Evangelism training school, Diocese of Kibondo

The course took place in the diocese of Kibondo, and evangelists attended from 5 different dioceses (Kibondo, Western Tanganyika, Kagera, Lweru and Tabora). In total 54 evangelists took part.

Trainers, Canon N. Kilaha and Canon D. Haji

In the mornings teaching was given about mission and evangelism and the different methods and techniques which can be used, as well as about the importance of the Holy Spirit in evangelistic work. The main teachers were Rev. Canon David Haji of the Dodoma Evangelistic Association, and Rev. Canon Naftali Kilaha from the diocese of Kibondo.

In the afternoons students put the teaching in to practice and carried out door 2 door evangelism for 2 days and open air mission events for 2 days. Many people gave their lives to the Lord and others were healed of sicknesses and demons.

The course was a huge blessing to all involved. The students said that they had been greatly encouraged and built up in their ministry and were fired up to return to their dioceses to continue in God's work with more confidence and knowledge, and in the strength of the Holy Spirit.
