Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

Thank you for your prayers as I head to Rwanda for the next 2 weeks. I will be in Kigali from 20th August until 4th September teaching the Moore College PTC course to a group of Rwandan ministers, assisted by Michael Tunks from Ryde Anglican. This will be the second group of students to participate in the course, which consists of 6 subjects taught over 6 weeks. Our students have classes from Monday to Friday, then an exam on Saturday.

Even though our course participants currently pastor churches or work as evangelists, most have not had the opportunity for formal theological training. The PTC course provides a sound framework for understanding the Bible as a whole, especially its focus on Jesus as the fulfilment of God’s plan for salvation.

Pray for:

  • Our students to grow in Biblical understanding and godliness as we study God’s word together
  • My ability to communicate God’s message clearly, truthfully and with cultural sensitivity
  • The gospel of Jesus Christ to penetrate hearts and lives in Rwanda and beyond through this course
  • Jo, Charlotte and Jamie who will remain in Australia

In Christ,

Dan Bidwell
