2019 was a great year for KidZ at Heart training in Africa! Our National Training Networks in South Africa and Uganda facilitated the vast majority of training as two-hundred and fifty teachers attended twelve different training locations in five different countries – Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, Malawi, and South Africa. Over one-hundred people earned their certificates of completion as their training locations completed all 8 modules.
Also, in November of 2019, we officially welcomed Derrick and Mercy Banda as National Network Coordinators for Zambia. We were thrilled to conduct a Great Trainer Summit for 8 leaders who are now licensed to present Transforming KidZ Ministry training in their country. It was a wonderful time of celebration as the team prayed for God’s direction and provision in the year to come.
We also sent two training teams to Africa in 2019. Nearly thirty people completed all eight modules in Rushenyi, Uganda. In Tanzania, there were 103 total participants in two locations, of whom 53 were brand new to KidZ at Heart training. We are excited to return to Karatu (Tanzania) and are looking for people to join our training team on their trip this June. Please contact us if you would like to be part of the team!
We have witnessed God’s blessing and are rejoicing at the fruit we’re experiencing in Africa. We thank God for our National Coordinators and Regional Directors in Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, and South Africa. Please continue to pray for them by name – Grace, Edwin, Derrick and Mercy Banda, and Lynnette. Through their efforts, we pray that thousands of children will fall deeply in love with Jesus.
