January 22-26, 2018 at University of Rwanda (UR) Huye campus there was a Discipleship Training program (DTP). DTP is an annual training organized to help students understand the great commission, God’s heart for his people and the balance between career, family and missions so that they can live lives devoted to God and his purpose. This year’s theme was “Evangelism as a lifestyle“. It brought together 50 participants among whom 4 got saved and many more renewed their commitments to the Lord.
Angel Akariza (photo above), one of the saved testified “Actually, I came to DTP for just to come. It is my friend who invited me. I had not believed Jesus. I was a catholic. Those things of Jesus, I did not believe in them. But she told me DTP is a training for life, which got me more confused for I asked myself what that means. But the day I came they explained how Jesus is the way, the truth… You know they were times when I felt guilty and prayed. My pray was: ‘God forgive me all my sins’ and then I would say to myself, really if God comes tonight I will go to heaven. But I discovered that Jesus is our only one access to God and that is something important in my life. You I even received him (Jesus) as Lord and Savior of my life and that is something important. DTP helped me so much. Those things of ‘quiet time’ I did not know them. Even reading the Bible, it is my first time to open the Bible in my life, even touching it, I do not know. Everything, I learned in this DTP!”
