A key crossroad city in southern Ethiopia, Shashemene has several churches but very few preach the true Gospel. A fledgling Bible College has two classrooms and a sparse library. The school’s president is now seeking faculty members. TLI’s non-formal program utilizes this school’s facilities to provide crucial training in Biblical interpretation and exposition, which local leaders lack. In so doing, we help stem the tide of the “prosperity gospel” heresy that predominates here.
