Wow, things have kicked into high gear for me! TEN3 had a great Skype meeting Wednesday morning about all we need to get done before our next trip to Nigeria in August. We have a lot of Computer Training Outreach material to get revised, written, and/or edited in time to send them to Christie to get them printed in June. This material includes Computer Essentials, the Bible as a story, Spreadsheet Essentials, database material, teacher training materials and administrator training materials.
This is for the conference of ECWA* principals and teachers, where we will train many of them in our model of discipleship through computer education. Educators from other Nigerian denominations, and possibly others who want to start computer schools, will be invited as well. Dr. Byo, the director of the ECWA schools, stated our vision beautifully when he said he wanted students to learn how to use their students to use the computer as a tool to know God and not be enslaved by any aspect of the computer. This, we pray, will teach students that God is present in every area of our lives, so that even something so "secular" as a computer is a tool by which we can know Him and serve society. Dr. Byo shares our vision of expanding the Christian worldview from computers to every area of education.
That, combined with the full-time work I will be doing for the next two weeks at SPC bookstore, and then Christmas, and then starting my Relationship Development Ministry in full, means I will be going pretty nonstop for a while. But I'm excited about that; I just hope to take hold of everything God has in store for me; He continues to amaze me with His plans! Please pray that in all this I keep my focus on Him, the only way I can ever accomplish all this, and the only reason I should want to.
