My name is Annah Naserian, a sinner saved by grace. I joined the iServe Africa Apprenticeship programme in September 2022 and I am placed at Deliverance Church-Ewaso, Kajiado. My roles are; teaching Sunday School, coordinating the Youth Ministry, overseeing the home fellowships, and conducting the Bible Studies. This is my fifth month into the apprenticeship program and the experience so far has been incredible.
I am very grateful to be in the program and appreciate my apprenticeship journey. Starting with the physical Ministry Training Courses (MTC) that I have attended so far, I learned various fundamental gospel truths, one being that our greatest problem is SIN and our greatest need is the GOSPEL which is the good news of Christ Jesus. This very gospel addresses our deepest concern. I have also come to know that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ Jesus alone. I have continued to grow as a Bible student but more importantly in my convictions about the gospel through the online MTC.
The gospel truths I am learning have given me the joy and confidence to share them even in normal conversations with church members and nonbelievers. One of the amazing experiences I have had is talking to this Sunday school kid after a Sunday school class on the lesson repentance he just wouldn’t understand why his little 3-year-old sister needs to repent yet she is innocent. We went through the scriptures together to see how we’ve all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory, so we ought to repent and be saved. I also highlighted that kids are not exceptional for they are sinners, and so are his sister and me. We then prayed to God to forgive us and that we always know that Jesus died on the cross so that we be saved. This has been a delight.
As the apprenticeship journey continues, I am so delighted to have the privilege to continue hearing the gospel taught and have opportunities to share it with other people. My prayer and deepest desire are to continue to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior and behold Him and call others to come to Him.
