Update on GBI Scholarships...

I just went over the giving statements for GBI in March... we received 22 scholarships and 16 more pledges for scholarships in the first month!

Our goal is to get 50 scholarships a year and we are well on our way for 2010!

If you haven't seen the video yet... check it out!

Here's a few smiling faces of 3 of our scholarship recipients...
 
Erecu Moses was serving as the Pastor of Evangelism and Discipleship at Soroti Community Church before coming to GBI...


 
Amanya Enoch was serving in Lira as the Pastor of Jesus the Centre Commission Church and was voted by the students of GBI to serve as the Vice-Chairman on the Student Council during his first term!


Eisu Jacob also comes from Obyarai and has been serving in the area of Evangelism at Obarai Community Church...

It is so exciting for me personally to have these men at GBI because when I met them in November each never thought that they would receive the opportunity to study at a Bible College. Everyday seeing them in class it is a reminder to me that despite how weird it can feel at times raising funds (asking friends and strangers for money)... it is totally worth it because of the lives, churches and communities that are being transformed by the gospel!

Thanks to everyone for being a participating in the training of these young leaders!
