We can only thank and praise God for the 2018 School of discipleship. We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to the Church leadership and church members for availing themselves to lead devotions; the OBC Family for all the monetary donations and food items we received; for without you ALL, the FTN School of Discipleship would not have been a success. Through your generous giving, we were able to feed every volunteer who participated for the 3 weeks.
We would also like to thank those who have taken up the challenge to be prayer partners for the volunteers; your support, prayers and intercession will go a long way in covering and strengthening them while they are out in the field. May God continue to bless the church and increase its territory.
We had 96 volunteers attend the 3 weeks of the School of Discipleship. On the first day, we already had volunteers showing enthusiasm and eagerness to serve.
THE 1ST WEEK 28TH MAY – 1ST JUNE 2018
Spiritual Leadership and Discipleship was taught by Dr. Daniel Yang, who led 11 volunteers to Christ on his first day.
Drug and Alcohol Abuse was addressed by Boyson Mokone from Alpha; a former addict who is now clean and happily married.
THE 2ND WEEK 4TH JUNE – 8TH JUNE 2018
The Fresh Start USA Team taught volunteers the process of forgiveness, leading them to bring all their unforgiveness to the cross. Most of the volunteers had one on one sessions with individual Fresh Start Team members, to further process their issues before going to the schools.
THE 3RD WEEK 11TH JUNE – 15TH JUNE 2018
Evangelism was taught by Pastor Chris from Towers of Refuge.
Spiritual Warfare was taught by Mrs Grace Yang.
Commissioning Service was held on Friday 15th June for ministry in 33 secondary schools around Botswana.
Throughout the three weeks the ABC curriculum was taught by FTN. The teachings for this year’s School of Discipleship were very powerful and impactful with visible evidence that the Spirit of the LORD was present.
