Tassie Ghata visiting the UK this spring
Our international coordinator Tassie Ghata will be in the UK from 24 March to 7 April, spending a week in southern England and then a week in the North.
She is looking forward to meeting as many supporters as possible during these two weeks.
Activism to end violence against women and girls
Grace & Light has helped amplify the voices of female survivors of gender-based violence as a supporter of the UN’s campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence.
Staff and volunteers in Jos and Yola hosted or joined activities on 12 of the 16 days including visiting churches and speaking at events.
Lutheran trainee pastors embrace social righteousness
Trainee Lutheran pastors in Adamawa State have deeper understanding of social righteousness following a Grace & Light workshop.
International coordinator Tassie Ghata led the three day workshop in late November at the Lutheran seminary in Mbamba for 348 theological students and local pastors.
New team formed after latest training
A new team has formed in Abuja following new volunteer training in late October.
Five people have joined the volunteer team in Masaka a town near Abuja and visited their first local church for its Sunday service in November.
Social righteousness changes lives
Congregations recognise the difference between serving God and attending church, dramatically changing their lives when they hear Grace & Light’s message of social righteousness.
Many Nigerians believe their lives are okay because they go to church each Sunday; they assumed this is what God wants of them. Then they hear Grace & Light’s message with its call to live lives that honour God.
Committing to shaping the future
During 2022 we helped shape the lives of students who now want to make a positive difference to Nigeria’s future.
It is becoming harder to visit schools and share Grace & Light’s message of social righteousness with students. During 2022 our Jos and Yola teams visited12 schools in the first three months of the year, three schools in June and July and then one in October.
