The first day I arrived was the fondest.
I was welcomed and made family immediately.
That night was filled with joking and laughing - there was great sense of belonging!

Catching Up
DTS Week 3: The Nature & Character of God (Teacher - James Chege)

The April DTS is well underway.
This morning, we caught up with a handful of the students on how Week 3 is going.


"It's actually very challenging, according to me. This nature and character of God, we have to be very careful as we differentiate them since they are actually linked up so much... Umm... It's of course interesting to learn new things. It's good to be challenged, but I am loving it."

"I'm really enjoying the lectures this week. I find it interesting because there's a lot that I have learned.
I [also] find it tiring, I think because we have had evening sessions the last two days... "

"Actually, this week, I am not getting anything...
The whole thing is complicated, even if he used simple words... That topic of God's holiness is giving me a problem... "

"One thing that I really loved that I did not know, that I learned yesterday; that God can appear to man in form of God and can also send a messenger, like in the story of Jacob (as an angel) and in the story of Moses (as God Himself)..."

"The first day was alright, but since yesterday, I have just been floating...
More time should be taken to explain that part of God's holiness... "

"I wanted more time on the Trinity, which I know he will do tomorrow. Yesterday we only did like 10 minutes because we were a bit delayed yesterday. So we did have a lot of time on God's holiness and on Him being eternal. So, personally I would like to have more time on the Trinity, which I know He will handle tomorrow."


An interesting range of viewpoints from some of the 15 students in this lecture phase.

Please keep them in prayer as they continue this week with James Chege, and through all the weeks to follow, with one goal; knowing God and making Him known.

🤔 “Why should I do a DTS?”
This school will INSPIRE and CULTIVATE GROWTH in your relationship with God; resulting in Christ-like character, which is based on a solid Biblical Foundation, the work of the Holy Spirit and the personal application of Biblical truth, especially concerning God’s Character, the Cross and empowering Grace.

...to the start of the April 2019 DTS!
