For those of you who follow this site a bit more closely, you've likely noticed I've not been posting much in April. The reasons? There's about 13 of them, actually, and they're pictured above - the pastors I had the privilege of being with again as part of the Hope Center Pastor Training School in Serenje, Zambia. (Don't worry, I'm hoping to pick up my blogging in early May!)
This year at the Hope Center Pastor Training School, we walked through (1) the book of 1 Corinthians, (2) a class on the Theology of the Holy Spirit, and (3) a class on Discipleship in the Book of 1 Peter. These men are eager learners, faithful servants, and partners in the gospel. Their work inspires me and challenges me, and continually reminds me of the big, global God we serve together. Pray that God continues to work in these men and through their local churches, for the good of His church in Zambia.

Welcome back Tim !! How do you handle the language differences when you go over there and teach ? Also are there things that you have to avoid in order not to offend them ?

Thanks for checking in Bruce! The pastors that are currently part of the Hope Center Pastor Training are all conversant enough in English that (surprisingly to many) we don't need to use a translator with this cohort. It's so great to be able to talk directly - both in terms of the content we can cover AND the direct personal interaction.
