The Scripture in Schools team sows seeds and waters them; they don’t often see the fruit of their work. The story of Miss S is one of seed which was sown and tended to with kindness & patience, producing fruit. Miss S. in year 6 had been in our scripture classes since she was in Kindergarten. She started out as a little kindy girl who showed no interest in the bible, and regularly caused trouble in scripture classes throughout the years. When she came into year 6, she started asking questions – big bible questions! – which would lead into great group discussions. She would quietly read the bible during the whole lesson; she was enthralled and asked for a Bible to take home. One day she asked what to do to become a Christian, so the scripture teacher prayed with her and led her to Jesus. Such a beautiful moment! Miss S. continued to ask questions each week and at the end of the school year she said to the scripture teachers “Thank you for showing me Jesus! I feel changed somehow, it’s a good feeling!” She drew a picture to show her feelings about God when reading Psalm 23.

C3 East Africa Support for the Regional Directors
We assist C3 East Africa Directors, Rock and Deborah Mutegheki, with travel and communication so they are able to effectively connect with and lead the 60 plus C3 churches spread across East Africa.
C3 East Africa Pastor & Leader Gatherings/Covid-19 Support
A huge part of sowing into the lives of C3 Pastors and Leaders is to provide relational connection and training at pastor’s days, area gatherings and regional conferences. This year, with the impact of Covid-19 restrictions upon movement and economic well-being, money that would normally have been used for in-person gatherings have been used to provide meal packages and communication to those in isolation.
