After having completed the Covenant Disciples Bible Course, Pastor Timothy went
to Khalwenge in the Endebess district of Mount Elgon in Kenya, with the specific
intention of starting a Covenant Disciples Bible Training class for pastors there.
Testimonies from Khalwenge
In the beginning it was very difficult for pastor Timothy as the
pastors were all from different denominations and church groups,
and were all rather suspicious. But after finding that the Covenant
Courses are purely about God’s Word and not doctrine,
they slowly started to join the Training Courses …
This past Sunday, of the 42 candidates that graduated, 32 were pastors.
Now you may well ask, why on a Sunday?
Simply because one of the pastors who graduated is a Seventh Day
Adventist who believes one should not work on the Sabbath, so all
the other pastors agreed to a graduation ceremony on Sunday!
Khalwenge Pastors’ Testimonies
Before the Covenant Bible School started, pastors never used to walk or work
together, as they felt they had nothing in common and thought that they were
in competition with each other, refusing to visit each other. But once the Bible
class began, and they started to join, they slowly forgot their differences, and
even began to visit each other because their lives were being changed.
The Bible courses brought unity …
They were learning together what love really is and began to practically apply it.
Every lesson ended with a practical part which gave them an opportunity to
put into practice what they learnt. Little by little, relationships began forming
amongst them to where they have began supporting each other, preaching
in each other’s church and have also started a pastors’ fellowship
through which they also look after each other’s welfare and needs.
They truly believe that the Covenant Courses or Bible school was God sent
and that today the right biblical doctrine is being taught in their churches.
The pastors are confident of what they teach and the people in the village
are now growing as a result of being taught right. They also believe
that they are now able to identify a false teaching because of
the foundation they have through the Covenant courses.
Finally, a special congratulations to Ruth Nanjala Wekesa
our first blind student to successfully complete the course!
