From 10 to 105 (This Is Why We Are Here)

Freddy was one of Reach Tanzania's students in 2014 and 2015.  Recently, he stopped by our training center and shared this story:

In 2015, we started having family sessions of prayers in the evening. So we used to praise and worship God, and some of our neighbors started hearing how we were praising God and worshiping Him.  So they started joining us for prayers and worshiping the Lord.  And slowly I started telling them about the Good News about Jesus.  And [I used] some methods I have learned about here at Reach Tanzania.  For example, from the evangelism [class].  They accepted Christ and they offered their lives to Jesus.  So I taught them those methods that I have learned here at Reach Tanzania and they started applying them to the places that they were going.  And they won a lot of souls.  So from a number of 10 people now we have grown to a number of 105, to this time.  In a year.  So I thank God for this school.  

This is why we are here.  This is why we keep staying.  

Gil and some of our students recently made this 4 minute video to recruit new students for next year.  Freddy tells his story in it, and you'll hear from some others as well.  (If you are reading in a feed, you will need to click through to the post.)

And if you don't have time for that one, this one is only 1 minute, and I promise it will make your day.  This is what our students do...all the time...spontaneously....just because they love Jesus and love to sing.
