At TAFES, we believe that one of the fastest growing mission fields in the whole world is the university. Hence there is an urgency to reach university and college students with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
One of the programs we are employing is training leaders. From 23rd to 26th, April, 2021, a National Leadership Training seminar was held. 101 Regional student leaders from 8 regions: Dar, Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza, Dodoma, Mbeya, Morogoro and Iringa sttended.
This is what one of the student leaders had to say after the training:
“I was wondering how I will manage to balance leadership responsibilities with the many challenges especially those coming from my family, this pressure had made me feel insecure but in the topic of ownership and loyalty to TAFES vision I realized that I can make it, God has really spoken to me through all the facilitators, it’s like they knew my situation. So i have leared to own TAFES no matter what.
Furthermore through group sharing of the leadership journey I discovered that people are facing more complicated challenges than I am.
Prayers have also changed me, I can now share my life something that had been very hard for me to do in the past but through this LTS I have been able to share and received advice and now I have peace and all the pain and hurt that I was harboring in my heart is gone. I really thank God for this.
Another testimony is that I have made friends from different regions, am sure that together we shall be able to carry on the vision ya tafes to reach our campuses with the gospel.”
