African Bible University could never have come at a much better time. I cannot fully describe the tremendous blessing African Bible University's education has been to me because even the best description I could ever give is just a tip of the iceberg or a drop of water in an ocean. It was divine providence that brought African Bible University into my life and it was all I needed to move on with my calling since 1993.

HOW ABU DEVELOPED MY LIFE & PREPARED ME FOR SERVICE

God designed the studies at ABU to function as an integral whole in one’s life; at least this is my view because of how they impacted me. It is very difficult to distinctively point out one, two or three courses because they all worked like a weave.  So, it will be best to describe how they developed (on-going) me spiritually, professionally and personally.

Spiritual Development

Spiritually, prior to coming to ABU I was a Christian for eighteen years but it was at ABU that I learnt that the message of salvation was not explained adequately enough; which retarded my development into a victorious Christian life. I knew nothing about the effectual calling to salvation, faith, justification, regeneration, sanctification, and glorification. These stood out as key elementary concepts for any Christian to understand the journey ahead of them. I loved Jesus with a passion but did not know how to love Him a’right. I literally ignorantly lived by works, and in a prideful self-righteousness (sounds humanistic; it never occurred to me that if I could do it, it meant that I didn’t need Christ). I used to think of others and say often times, “How can you be a Christian and still do that?” No one ever explained to me the comforting, humbling teaching of predestination.  I now know that it is Christ who drew me to himself and he is watching over my journey with his unfailing love and tender mercies as the good Shepherd; and that the righteousness I possess is not from me but His. This is how it started and so will it be until glorification, I have nothing to boast about.
I understand that I was and still I am a sinner who desperately need Him and that I have to demonstrate my allegiance to Christ by cooperating with His Holy spirit in the ongoing process of sanctification and that apart from Him I can do nothing. This has impacted my perception of adversity over time; I don’t ‘bind and tie’ the devil but view those moments as opportunities to either bear fruit or grow into Christ-likeness. I think the same of others to avoid being critical and judgmental. This was underlined by the outstanding demonstration of the graciousness by which I was treated together with many who made various mistakes. It is incumbent on me therefore to endeavour, by God’s grace, to forgive and love as I have been forgiven and loved. My primary service is to do His will and the most important of all service; and this is why understanding the above was so significant. My prayer is that God will help me to teach the same to others while remembering what Paul says in James 3:1, “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers; for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness”.

The Professional Development

Professionally, the theology taught through the different bible books, hermeneutics, biblical and systematic theology deepened my biblical world view. I now can differentiate between the biblical worldview and other world views with more ease than before. A Christian teacher must have the ability to detect and dissect between the biblical world view and other world views. It is becoming clearer how life can and must be lived according to what the bible teaches. My mandate as a Christian teacher is to prepare students for living life the way God has intended by taking captive every thought that is not obedient to Christ and His word through every subject.
The Christian teacher and student must be in position to reason biblically; and be ready in season and out of season to share Christ with others who do not know Him. In Church History I saw that bad bible interpretation was and still is the major root cause for hazardous heretical teachings. Therefore teachers must be lifetime students of the bible and I am blessed to be equipped with good bible interpretation skills. Each student needs to be taught to personally study the bible and use it rightly to guide them in life. My desire is to raise a generation of Bereaians who though guided can make biblical truth their own discovery.

The Personal Development

Personally, English courses (I & II) and all the writing assignments for four years taught me how to write. I am a better writer now. My experience of working in the library was so helpful to my first job after graduating. Apart from lacking confidence that I would be able to work as a librarian, it was easy for me to find my way in the Heritage School Library. I loved the ABU library and cherished every opportunity that I had to use that facility and it paid off. Through working in the Library God has broadened my vision for reading from originally, just preparing babies to read by teaching the alphabet in English phonics in Pre-K to K, to knowing which reading skills, library skills and competent handling of information by Grade 12/Senior Six level. The goal is to help Ugandan students to match their counter parts internationally and to prepare them adequately for post secondary studies and life in general. Therefore developing good school libraries has become one of Sayuni Education Uganda‘s mandate. Lastly but not least, four years of P.E taught me how to keep young and I guess I will stay young even at a hundred years. The secret is, EXERCISE.
I am presently founding an Educational establishment to try to use and demonstrate what I learnt. I am also preparing for postgraduate studies online with Regent University in Virginia Beach, USA. As I wind up my work at Heritage, please pray that God will give me wisdom and provide financially for these two steps of making a dream come true. Please pray for ‘Adam’ to wake up soon too because so far the Lord has not asked me to stay single and I believe ‘that two are better than one’. I cannot handle this enormous vision alone; I believe that this is the right time. These three are my very crucial prayer needs
