Request for Help in North East India

What are you doing next year and what is in your diary for 2009?

TWB has received a request for help in the teaching programme of a seminary in North East India. The letter says:

“Our special areas of need are New Testament, Missions, Old Testament and Church History.”

“Our Spring semester runs from February to May and Spring from August to November. Any time during the working semester that is convenient for a teacher to come is alright with us.”

This means a teacher who is able to stay for the full semester would be most welcome but if they can come and teach an intensive for a week, two weeks or a month, that would be fine as well. There is flexibility.

“We will not be able to pay for the travelling expenses of the teacher/s but we will take care of hospitality (accommodation, food and transport to the College and back them back to the airport).”

“Awaiting your kind response.”

This is a lively seminary, with fine teachers and promising students whom I met when I had the privilege of speaking at their annual graduation ceremony.

In this current semester 36 new students have been admitted, making a total of 101 students altogether.

Please give this request your careful consideration. Let me know if you have a warming and a sense of timing for next year. Even if your teaching subjects are different from those they mention above and you are available and interested, do let me know.

Please check out the posting Expression of Interest on this TWB web site and use this template to fill out your details, if you have not sent them to me already.
