‘Madam, you have made my children pastors’


Francisca Ike plays with some of the children she cares for in a day-care program at a Christian school near Orlu, Nigeria. Ike, a church member from Cameroon, established the school in 2007 with five students. Now, more than 200 are enrolled in the school’s elementary grades.
In addition to their academic studies, students at the school learn Bible lessons — and share them with their parents. “Some (of the parents) tell me, ‘Madam, you have made my children
pastors,’” Ike said. “They listen now when we preach.”
Some parents have enrolled in the World Bible School correspondence course, she added. Ike seeks funding to expand the school’s facilities and hire additional teachers.
