In Kenya, hundreds of high school students sign up to study the Bible


In AIDS-ravaged Africa, a church-sponsored program teaches morality to thousands of high school students — tackling taboo subjects such as sex and abstinence. In addition, the program has immersed the students in the Bible.
Workers with Right Choices, a ministry based in Nyeri, Kenya, report that hundreds of teens signed up for the World Bible School correspondence program after a tour of high schools in Mumias, a town in western Kenya.
Missionary Greg Clodfelter led a team of Kenyan Christians who conducted Right Choices seminars at five schools in Mumias, warning teens of the dangers of HIV and teaching Bible-based morality.
Days later, Meshack Amwayi, an evangelist and member of the Mumias Church of Christ, returned to the schools and signed up students for the correspondence course. At one school, Amwayi signed up more than 100 teens, who completed the lessons and sent them to U.S. church members to be graded.
“I hope there are enough Christians in America to handle the workload that could come out of this open door,” Clodfelter said.
John Reese, president of World Bible School, was quick to respond.
“WBS teachers — thousands of them — are all about sharing Jesus with truth-seekers,” Reese said. “They’re ready and more are joining them every day.”
Mentored by the late Berkeley Hackett, Clodfelter has worked in Kenya 19 years and began teaching biblical morality in high schools in 2008. He has visited more than 100 schools and spoken to about 40,000 high school students. The Andrews Church of Christ in Texas supports the work.
In recent weeks, additional schools have contacted Amwayi and asked for Right Choices seminars.
“This means the church is getting into more schools exposing more students to God’s word,” Clodfelter said. “Hundreds and hundreds more students potentially will be signed up for WBS.”
