Need 2 more teachers
Pastor Tesfaye Nenko Edema, TLI's national partner in Ethiopia, helped to start this 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. This is the second cohort in Hawassa.
At present, there are approximately 45 students at the site, most of whom are pastors, youth leaders, women's leaders, or lay elders. Graduation is planned for late 2022.
Challenges for these leaders are mostly related to their denomination's hierarchical and legalistic leanings. Prayer is needed for the training to adequately address this unhelpful teaching and the divisions which exist among the churches of this area.

Course 2: Knowing the Bible's Story
Course 2 explores the general flow of Christ-centered redemptive history from Genesis to Revelation. Major themes that appear throughout—each including aspects of continuity and discontinuity—are God’s kingdom, covenants, people, kingship, priesthood, prophetic ministry, and mission. Each theme is embedded within Scripture’s testimony to the fundamental storyline of God’s plan to reconcile the world to himself under Christ’s kingship for his glory.
