Launch of E-Readers for Theological Education in Two Schools in Mozambique
By Kara Oliver
The e-Reader launch at Cambine Theological School in Mozambique began with worship, singing, and introductions in the chapel.
Then we moved into a large classroom in the same building for the actual training. Adriano Kilende from Higher Education and Ministry led the training in Portuguese. The training is meant to be very practical and user-friendly, getting the students and faculty to explore the content and some of the features of the Kindles.
The students – from both Cambine and Gondola Training Center - caught on fast.
Following the training, the students and faculty gathered in the chapel for some special songs and presentations.
Robin Pippin, Project Leader from Discipleship Ministries, spoke briefly about the E-reader project in general and how it fits in with the work of DRI, seeking to address the lack of crucial resources in the Central Conferences.
There was a grand signing ceremony with Robin, Adriano, and the leader of each school.
Several others were invited to the ceremony, including a Peace Corps volunteer working at Cambine and the German missionaries serving there also.
Everyone expressed interest and enthusiasm for this particular project and its potential growth in the Mozambique annual conferences.
