We held the fifth graduation for our Turkana Bible Training Institute students on December 3. It was a day full of ceremony, fun and praise! These students studied for two years and finished eighteen intensive classes on the Bible, church leadership and Spiritual formation. We had a festive day as you can see in the picture above. It was taken after the ceremony. Do you see the grass? That is the result of recent rains. We even got rain during the main speaker's talk. It was fitting that he was talking to the students about rain. It is very good, but it can cause some short term hardships - like having to stop the speaker because he can't be heard over the sound of the rain. :) He said studying can be the same. He encouraged them to use what they had learned so the good results could be seen by those who helped them and sacrificed so they could attend.
