CEAI SAFARI TO KENYA / UGANDA APRIL 2017 - By Gaylene DeMars
Kenyan teachers share many of the same joys and challenges as American teachers. CEAI has been blessed to come alongside them and offer encouragement and leadership development.
After facilitating past seminars in Mombasa and Nairobi, Kenya, CEAI has been invited to travel this year to Ukunda and Naivasha, Kenya, as well as Southeast Uganda. The CEAI team including the DeMars and Elliots will be working with approximately 50-60 teachers at each of the three locations.
You can participate via prayer and donations to help cover the costs for local educators.
The teachers value coming together with other Christian teachers to hear how God is at work, and to be challenged by how they can bring God’s love and truth into their local schools daily. Studies in the life and challenges of Daniel are relevant to them today.
We develop skills in communication, personal devotions, overcoming obstacles, creative thinking skills, developing plans of action, and leading Discovery Bible studies. We look at what the Bible has to say about living lives of integrity, seeing our students with eyes of grace, and what we can learn from the life of Daniel.
We value your prayers! God has definitely been at work in these past several annual conferences, as we have shared in several Teacher of Vision articles. And we can’t wait to see how He will move this summer.
The facilitators from the US are raising their own funds, but the transportation, food, housing, and materials cost for the participants at the three locations will be $4,500. The teachers will be paying a small fee, but additional funds are needed for their expenses. Any help in covering these participant expenses will be greatly appreciated. It is amazing to think of the number of lives touched by 150 teachers. This training will impact not only their personal lives, but the lives of the students and their families, and coworkers both in this year and the years to come.
Make your donations at ceai.org/donate listing CEAI SAFARI TO KENYA/UGANDA APRIL 2017 in the Reason section so 100% of your donation is directed help cover the cost of local participation.
We appreciate your prayers as we step out in faith to God’s calling. May He be honored by every nation throughout the world.
