This week’s Bible Study Intensive on 2 Timothy and Titus was a huge success, and we are grateful for Pastor Leon De Haan of Thrive Ministries International for developing the curriculum and leading the teaching.  In the picture above, the students – local pastors, church leaders and Ignite coaches – are presenting him with a gift of an African shield to remind him of them and of the armor of God.

“I plan to apply what I’ve learned by preaching because through this intensive the tools were given to me to use them.  I was helped to help others and most important, to put them into action myself.  I was blessed by everything I’ve learned and I pray that God would help you to come again to teach.  May God bless you and keep you safe.” – Sello Mpho

“Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus.  Even when it was hard he kept on proclaiming the Good News.  It encouraged me to push on preaching the Word of God because I know that even when I go through hardships I’m not alone.  God is with me.  I’m going to apply what I’ve learned, meditate on it day and night and also use it to teach other people.” – Nnini Sibeko

“I enjoyed the part where we looked at the relationship between Paul and Timothy, more specifically the deep emotional bond of a father and son in Christ Jesus.  I am definitely going to pursue a mentoring program to assist people into having a deep sense of the love of God.  I want to build relationships of mentors and mentees so that those involved will experience God’s love through each other.” – Khaba Tekano

“What has impacted me the most is learning more about what was faced by Paul when he was writing these letters so that we can have this knowledge of the Gospel.  These teachings that are prepared on a verse by verse basis have developed me personally and in my ministry.  My sermons will be intensified by the background information and my preaching will be much more informative.  I thank Ignite SA for organizing these intensives and Pastor Leon for bringing the teachings.” – Reverend R. P. Maleke

Please join us in praying for our local leaders as they apply what they’ve learned, and for Pastor Leon as he travels back to the US.
