Transformation in Tanzania

While RICE in Tanzania currently awaits approval from the Tanzanian government as a recognized teachers college, students have continued their studies in math, science, language, and history. They have also been hard at work learning about the intricacies of art—drawing, painting, art history, and art appreciation.

 Missionaries Sara and Phil Nickels say that when the teachers-to-be begin the introductory art class, they are often hesitant: “It is easy to see their uncertainty when first-term students’ pencils hover over their blank papers, contemplating the first mark.” They say that the students soon become comfortable with a pencil or brush in their hand, and they also begin to enjoy their art studies as they progress.

Two RICE students have gained mastery in their artistic ability, reaching the highest-level class in the program. In their class, Charles and Paschal have learned how to mix paint colors and create a range of color intensities. They take pleasure in both creating their projects and viewing their finished works.

We ask you to pray for the Tanzania RICE program to be approved and accredited by the government. With an accredited teaching certification, RICE students like Charles and Paschal will have the opportunity to teach students about the majesty of God through drawing and painting in their own art classrooms some day.
