Blessings in Nepal 6 October 2014

Several times we have had students from Nepal in our International Class. Most of them work for the ECEC (Early Childhood Education Centre), an institution that equips teachers with skills for educating young children.

I received a message from Bijaya, one of the students of our International Class. The experience of the Dutch education system has made a big impression on him, he writes. A colleague of his, Pitambar, was in the Netherlands during our 70th anniversary and was asked to tell the Dutch student teachers about his work. He said that the work of his institution is blessed because he and his Christian staff members are invited to train teachers in public institutions.

We are grateful to the Lord that the training in Gouda has been beneficial for the services given in this country.
