Prasad Sakile of the New Life Regular Baptist Society in Andhra Pradesh, India, sends the following ministry update:
We conducted three-day special camps for teacher training. Only those who have passed the 10th standard are allowed to attend, as most of the children who attend Sunday School go to school. For this reason, a minimum qualification must be required to teach those children. The training program contains: (1) doctrine and faith with a clear explanation, (2) teaching skills and challenges, (3) psychology of children from an Indian perspective, (4) children’s involvement using our material to develop their skills, (5) teachers’ behavior when teaching the children, (5) Christian cultural programs for children, and (6) how to follow up the children in their spiritual life to fulfill the Great Commission.
All the expenses of training and the costs of materials are paid using local church funds. All Sunday School teachers are required to stay three days, and we must provide them food and shelter. We don’t collect any contributions from them. Still we trained 1,886 teachers. Please pray for these provisions.
