A Teacher at Msuzi Basic School

Mr. Innocent Moyo is 33 years old, married, with a 3 year old son.  He grew up the third child in a family of six children.  Innocent is currently pursuing his secondary teacher’s diploma, specializing in Civics and Religion.  Originally, his ambition was to become a medical practitioner, but over time he felt compelled to become a teacher instead.  He shares that he noticed the needs in God’s vineyard, and wanted to make a difference through teaching.

Innocent began to study education in 2014, and faced many challenges along the way.  Finances, for tuition and other educational needs were especially difficult.  But God was consistently faithful, and Innocent hopes to complete his studies at the end of 2016.

Msuzi CCAP Primary School was the school where he recently did his teaching practice. It was an overwhelming experience, being at a Christian school. The students’ participation during class as well as outside class activities was awesome. They were very committed and determined with regards to academic and vocational pathways. Some faced a lot of challenges in pursuing their studies such as difficulty paying tuition, lack of book and uniforms. Some students also came to school without lunch, though they had to spend the whole day in school.  In addition, the leadership and teachers at Msuzi Primary school was also inspirational and stimulating. Although his family lived far away in the Mambwe district, he felt at home at Msuzi.

Innocent shared that “The school inspired me –

Teaching for Transformation is not only about teaching in class, but also about being an inspiration, a tour guide, a comforter, and a servant.

I have been greatly impacted morally, and my spiritual life has been enhanced. I have learned that teaching is a call from God, and I feel transformed to share the serving life of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I would like to challenge all colleagues out there in different fields and working places to utilize every opportunity given to serve the community and contribute positively in the transforming lives of people and help them prepare for the coming of the Lord. Jesus Christ is going to say, ‘When I was hungry, you gave me food, when I was sick you visited me, and when I was naked you clothed me’”.

We pray for a blessing on Mr. Innocent Moyo as he completes his studies and follows God’s calling to him to be an instrument in the transformation of young hearts by sharing the Gospel through education.
