Happy New Year!
You may remember that last October I spent a week at Fiwale Bible College, which is just over an hour from Mpongwe. They are quite short staffed there and so when they asked for me to be seconded to the college I readily agreed. Fiwale serves the Baptist Union of Zambia, and so I’m still working with the same organisation, and still training Pastors, just in a different place and a different capacity. I believe this is an important role and I’m excited to face the new challenges but also daunted by the scale of the task!
The first challenge is to get the new house up together. I’ll be living on site at Fiwale, primarily because the role there is not only lecturing in the college but investing in the lives of the students. During my week at Fiwale in October one of the most special times was eating together with some of the students in the evening, when we can chew over theology together more informally.
