Reflections from our Alumni

5/5
"Understanding of culture is of utmost importance, if we want to pass on the message of the gospel. Its like the vehicle to help us penetrate. The gospel is like the pearl or gold we carry. Regardless of how precious the cargo is, if the vehicle is ineffective, the cargo cannot be delivered."

"Now i realise how critical it is to recognise the honour and shame culture in the lives of the people i meet. This helps me in strategising new approaches in our ministry events and interactions"

“It was so helpful to compile the Master Plan mind map which gave me a clear picture of how to set the priority and balance between missionary work and self care”
