The lock-down has brought so many new things to all of us. I want to share with you how we survived and had a great fellowship even in the midst of tough circumstances.
Right after I reached the North, within 3 weeks, the lock-down was started. I had been asked to teach Inductive Bible Study prior to starting my actual teaching; Leviticus. The new students were so blessed to learn the Inductive Bible Study. It was great to have some people with my same language from the South in the college. We made good friends with people in the local community and prayed for their salvation.
After the first few weeks of the lock-down , we began running
out of gas (for our stove), vegetables, and all other provisions. So, we began cooking with firewood and started growing vegetables including radishes, beans, etc.
The main worry everyone faced was how to get back to their hometowns. We were all stuck there for almost 3 months, but miraculously God provided every single need for all of us.
While all of this was going on, there was a huge disturbance with the Local Intelligence department investigating our college, so we had to stop teaching and classroom set up.
Our last semester was a good experience in understanding that we should be ready to face any sudden negative situations.
Please continue to pray for the students, as they have gone back to their hometowns. May God use their lifestyle and testimony to reach others for Christ.
God bless you,
