I stood in amazement as Margaret graduated from our International Training Institute program. Having never attended school during her life, she completed all 8 courses. As an oral learner, Margaret is an intelligent woman, toughened by a host of life experiences. Following her graduation, she took additional training to provide clean water for her community.
What followed represents the incredible power of training and what God can do in a person. She shared clean water and information about healthy living with everyone she could find. She also shared hope. Health improved in her community, and word spread to the surrounding area. Twenty new churches began and regularly meet to grow and encourage one another.
Margaret noticed something else—homeless orphaned children on the streets. Ten additional children now are part of her family.
Margaret had many reasons to feel sorry for herself, but she found better things to do. This unlikely graduate is well-equipped to spread hope, love, and God’s transformation with others.
