Global Training Network: Tom Shedd - March 2022 Update
Tom Shedd recently returned from Zambia and Burundi where he led training workshops in Understanding the Bible and Music and Worship Arts Training. Tom writes, "At the time of my arrival in January, Zambia was not allowing churches to meet for more than three hours a week but my country director and Global Training Network (GTN) colleague, Percy Muleba, and his Organizing Committee for Mazabuka were able to get a special dispensation to allow us to meet for three hours each day. This was less than the usual six hours per day, but I was able to cut material in such a way as to still supply the meat of the course. We added an evening session in another location for those who work during the day."
Tom conducted three days of training in the capital city of Bujumburu, Burundi at Bishop Bukene's church with a group of pastors and leaders. Bishop Bukene is the bishop of 49 Brethren churches in Burundi and has an excellent vision for educating the pastors. He earnestly desires to develop a seminary in Bujumbura, and Tom helped him work on developing plans during his visit. Their desire is that they will receive enough help from ministry partners to begin work this year on the project.
