Many years ago in a small village in Zambia a young man, Tembo, set out on a journey. He moved to Uganda to follow his dream and attain his Ph.D.
Tembo studied and worked very hard during this time in his life. At the same time, he began to ask questions and develop a relationship with his Global Scholars professor, who discipled him as a follower of Christ.
Today, Tembo is a committed believer who continues to connect with his Global Scholar, Langdon. Tembo and Langdon continue their friendship and frequently discuss issues of spiritual growth and ministry.
Not only did Tembo successfully complete his Ph.D., he now serves on faculty at a university near his home town in Zambia.
Now Tembo’s students will also have a Christian professor to teach them biblical truth and share with them the hope of Christ!
We are honored to serve God in this mission as we strive to communicate truth and biblical values to students like Tembo, helping them become men and women who can serve God in their own nations. Thank you for your financial and prayerful partnership that has made this work possible.
Beyond the tangible impact on our world this side of heaven, we look forward to the day when we finally meet the tens of thousands and even millions of men and women “from every nation and tribe and people and language” (Rev. 7:9) who have come into the Kingdom through the influence of Christian professors!
Do you have a hard time finding ways to discuss biblical truth with your colleagues, friends or family? The movie they recently saw probably contained biblical themes. I discuss how to identify and discuss these themes in my most recent blog post Jesus is at a Theater Near You — Three Ways to Find Him There
