Participants share how the training has impacted their lives:
Rosemary 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.
