The following is some feedback we received from students over the years. The first piece is a poem written by a Module 2 Student from Malawi.

Where were you Veritas?

A poem from Kaning’a CCAP

Where were you Veritas?
For coming today
We did not know you
When Mrs Chatha
Was not here at Kaning’a CCAP
Today eyes, ears are open
Because of you Veritas

Where were you Veritas?
You have opened our eyes and ears
Although it’s too late
We have known exegesis
Which is understanding in depth
Steps of understanding is known

Where were you Veritas?
You have told us when preaching
We have to know the following
Who is the author?
When was it written?
Who were the recipients?
What was the purpose?
Indeed Veritas has taught us a lot

Where were you Veritas
You have taught us the good news
When reading
We have to read some verses before
We have to read some verses after
To see the relationship of some verses
We couldn’t know all these
Without you Veritas

We couldn’t know all these
Without you Veritas Through
Nehemiah and Kittece Msangaambe
When we hear sermons
We are able to know what is missing or
These are not relevant
We have benefited with Veritas
Our lives are not the same than before

You have blessed us a lot Veritas
You have removed our fears when preaching or speaking
You have given us strength for preaching good news
You have given us conscience
By reading Word of God daily
Indeed you have changed our lives Veritas
Indeed where were you Veritas

Reverend R, a senior pastor in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Upper Egypt, says:

“The Veritas College program is an excellent resource for training leaders. A total of 36 of our members are involved in training. It is helping our local church to train our leaders inside the church. The training is based on biblical principles and is equipping our leaders both with biblical interpretation and skills in ministry. It has therefore a great impact.”

Rosemary Ziko

Rosemary Ziko, Ntchisi-fRosemary Ziko, a retired teacher and mother of five grown-up children, is a Facilitator Apprenticeship Programme member at Ntchisi CCAP congregation. She is currently facilitating three Veritas Bible classes and is also an active member of the village savings and loans group which helps the women who are part of the Bible classes. Rosemary says, 'I once was just a church goer with little knowledge of the Word of God. This changed when I was born again and now I want others to know what I have gained from knowing God. This is what motivates me to teach God's Word and because the participants are eager to learn. Moreover, I grow spiritually when I prepare for the lessons and Jesus says that the workers are few, and so I must help. I enjoy seeing participants grow in their understanding of the truth and learn to share it with others. This motivates me to equip others with God's Word. Veritas has also helped us holistically as we have learned to budget, save and use our money productively through the Village Savings and Loans programme'.
