Greeting! Praise the Lord ! Iam very happy to receive this good news from you. A dream becomes a reality. Thank you for receiving permission to start my own Christian school here in Haiti where there is a great hunger of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Word of God. But let me know if it will be a branch of BCU and must bear its name or independent. If it so, what obligations, step by step, please? Dr. Jean Mary Mirat, Haiti
This idea is good because one of the greatest needs in Tanzania is to have trained leaders in their ministry.Many pastors lead churches while they are not trained.I have already started BCU training here in Tanzania. Since I graduated from BCU I have been training leaders how to lead others to Christ. The results have been tremendous. However, there are challenges which make this program hard:1. Our geography. People come from different places which are far. They have to travel but we thank the Lord because they manage to pay their fare to and fro to attend classes.2. Expenses. Students need to be in a location where they can stay and study together. According to my plan they need to stay for two weeks then they go back to their ministry. After 2 months they have to come school to proceed with their studies. Students can come with their food.2. Expenditure. Here we minister by volunteering, some times it seems too difficulty since as a tutor I have a family and other expenditures and according to BCU policy studies must be 100% free.I would like to ask Is there any provision to enable a tutor to cover some of the necessary needs?I believe if there is a provision the tutor will concentrate on training God's servants and the result will be tremendous.I will be glad to hear again from you.

Start A Christian School
Marilyn and Thomas West brought Christianity to Nasarawa State (Nigeria) in 1950. They came through River Niger in a boat, before they succeeded in ministering salvation, they built a school and hospital and started giving free treatment to all the people that were sick, giving free education to the children then, people started having trust and believed on them by giving them attention. The next thing they did was to convince the people to stop worshiping the god of the land and the tree that was at the centre of the town. Before the people finally accepted Christ in their life as their Lord and personal saviour.

BCU student: Myrna D. Scamp, McLean, USA; John 1:1-13 1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and [b]the Word was God Himself. 2 He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. 3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. 4 In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines on in the [c]darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it]. 6 There came a man commissioned and sent from God, whose name was [d]John. 7 This man came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe [in Christ, the Light] through him. 8 John was not the Light, but came to testify about the Light.
9 There it was—the true Light [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] which, coming into the world, enlightens everyone. 10 He (Christ) was in the world, and though the world was made through Him, the world did not recognize Him. 11 He came to that which was His own [that which belonged to Him—His world, His creation, His possession], and those who were His own [people—the Jewish nation] did not receive and welcome Him. 12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the right [the authority, the privilege] to become children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name— 13 who were born, not of blood [natural conception], nor of the will of the flesh [physical impulse], nor of the will of man [that of a natural father], but of God [that is, a divine and supernatural birth—they are born of God—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified].
