Share’s Focus on Expanding Adult Literacy in Turkanaland

The most powerful tool we have to spread the Gospel is God’s very words as found in the Bible, and Share is expanding its efforts to teach the people in Turkanaland to read and write so they can read God’s word for themselves.  Through the Children of the Kingdom ministry, many children have been educated and are now prepared to become teachers and tutors in Share International’s adult literacy program.  Please pray for many of these students to feel God’s calling to join in teaching others to read.

These are the adult literacy students in Nabiun.  A new blackboard would be helpful.

The class in Nayanae has many students.   Most of them are the women of the village.

Bible Pathways Classes

The number Bible Pathways classes is growing as the Share missionaries take what they’ve learned about teaching from the Bible to the villages where they serve.  As the students in each of these classes matures in the ability to read and understand the Scripture, God’s kingdom in Turkanaland gains more bold evangelist to take the Word to the Turkana people.  All students are given their own Bibles .  Audible Bibles are given to those who have not yet learned to read and write.  Share is also expanding its Adult Literacy classes to enable more people to read the Bible.

Building Christ’s Kingdom Through Training and Sending

Share International built a training center in Lodwar that opened in 2014.  It is the central training facility for teaching missionary trainees, Bible Pathways students, Sunday School teachers, and a place for many of the ministry team leaders to conduct their training programs.  Share now needs a Resource Center for these training programs.  This resource center will be a source for books, training materials, videos, and teaching aids for all of Share’s indigenous missionaries, pastors, Bible Pathways students, Sunday School teachers, Adult Literacy trainers, evangelism teams, and the Lodwar staff.

The cost of this new resource center will be approximately $35,000.  We are trusting God to provide the funding for this addition to the training center, but are also asking for the prayers and support of all of God’s people.  Please consider helping with this project with a donation.

Adult Literacy Classes Spread the Gospel in Turkanaland

Adult Literacy Classes are instrumental in the spread of the Gospel among the Turkana people.  Students are taught to read and write so they can read the Bible and teach others.  Share now supports adult literacy teachers in 11 villages.

The cost to hire another Adult Literacy teacher is $120 per month or $1,440 per year.
