Ralph and Tim Cearley, formerly the IMB Affinity Leader for Sub-Sahara, West Africa, visited Ganta where Master Trainer, Eleazar, led his Timothys in the training of a third generation of trainees. Thirty-six were trained and were among 288 third generation trainees by seven of our newly graduated Master Trainers.
Ganta is near the Guinea border. It was ravaged by Ebola where more than 100 died. Eleazar planted a church in the middle of Old Ganta where Ebola was at its worst. Other residents of Ganta avoid Old Ganta because of its bad reputation. But, a shining Light is there now.
When we were there, Eleazar sent three newly trained teams to a part of town known for its drug and alcohol addicts and dangerous people. In two evenings, the teams old Old Testament and New Testament stories in different locations. Their audiences were receptive and soon another shining Light will illuminate the darkest place in Ganta.
