This site graduated from our 9 course curriculum in Oct 2018. Pray for them to continue to utilize what they learned in the 3 year training and pray for the health of their churches.
Pastor Tesfaye Nenko Edema, TLI's national partner in Ethiopia, helped to start this TLI training site at the location of an old girls' school originally built by Scandinavian Lutheran missionaries. To do this he recruited the help of a local denomination which partners to both host and populate the classes.
At present, there are approximately 45 students at the site, most of whom are pastors, youth leaders, women's leaders, or lay elders. This site will graduate in late 2018. Challenges in the school are mostly related to the denomination's hierarchical and legalistic leanings, Prayer is needed for TLI's training to address the unhelpful teaching and divisions which exist among the churches of this area.
