An Exciting Start to a New Year

As ITEC gears up for a year of growth and meaningful partnerships, the first week of the new year began with excitement. Multiple training teams set off to the heart of East Africa to provide trainings for a cherished partner for ITEC. Our medical, farm, and film teams conducted a week of training, building upon the completion of previous dental and mechanical trainings in 2023 with the local community of Christ followers.

The media team had the opportunity to interview our partner, Paul, about why training is important for their local church and how the trainings can be and is being used for the glory of God.

“Many organizations go for short-term, but they don’t have any long-term plan. When I looked at ITEC, I realized that a short-term trip could be translated into a long-term program, which is going to bring a lot of impact. We can transform this village by training locals to take care of their problems instead of just depending on foreigners without any sustainable plan. One of the trainings we are receiving this week, the medical training, will help us not just to reach out to people physically, but as we do the home visits we will have time to use it as an evangelism tool by sharing the Gospel with the people we meet.”

This week of training was significant for many reasons for ITEC. For the first time, the medical trainings were facilitated and predominantly taught by indigenous Christ followers, rather than ITEC trainers. The medical team was led by a local believer and a former West African trainee who was equipped as a trainer earlier in 2022. After spending a week learning and working hard to practice their new skills, the medical team graduated all 15 trainees.

Our farm team was also joined by a local Christ-following trainer as well. Having a local trainer participating in the classroom is invaluable for many reasons, one being because they inherently understand nuances and contexts of their community that an outsider does not. After the successful assembly and turning of a compost pile, and a week of learning and beginning to implement the concepts of conservation agriculture, all 13 farm trainees received certificates of graduation.

The ITEC film team had the opportunity to share the basics of storytelling, cinematography, and video editing with 7 local trainees, who were eager to learn how to create their films. After creating two video projects successfully (one film, in particular, moved our team to tears), all 7 trainees graduated.

At ITEC, we believe in the power of training to empower the indigenous Church with practical skills that impact their communities, providing a unique opportunity to share the Gospel. If you would like to learn more, we would love to connect with you!
