Refugee Ministry Training
My name is Tesfaldet T. Zere ,I was born in Asmara Eritrea. After completing my secondary school, I joined teacher’s training institute (T.T.I). After graduating to be a teacher, I was appointed to be an academy teacher in government schools for seven years. I was from Anglican faith, but at this time a friend of mine took me to a Pentecostal church and got saved. It was a glorious experience. After that, I started working as a school teacher in FINNISH MISSION SCHOOL for ten years. At this time I started growing in Christ and also was attending national teachers fellowship and soon started as a Bible teacher and home cell leader and later a leader of a Zone in a Church.
The Evangelical Church of Eritrea was closed by the government in 2002 and went underground to worship the Lord. Many of the leaders and pastors are put into prison by the police and security because of the Gospel. I ran away from my country and came to Uganda and stayed for eight years. I got married to my wife Yirgalem T. Fisseha and produced our son Emmanuel.
During my time in Uganda, I was serving the Lord mainly to Eritrean refugees in Uganda and South Sudan. In Uganda, I was under the mentorship of Rev. Samuel Kakande. In 2009 I planted a Church C.T.D.M THE THRONE OF GRACE. In October 8/2015 I came to Edmonton Canada as a permanent resident. While I am in Canada, I am still a Pastor to hundreds of souls scattered in Africa through the internet. In Edmonton, I got a pastor friend in a Pentecostal church who tried everything to help me get such Bible school training, but we failed to get financial help.All these years I have been serving the Lord for hundreds and thousands, but I had no papers that show I have a calling as a Pastor. I have every quality and a good knowledge of the Bible, anointing to preach and to minister Healing for the sick and oppressed but I could not afford to go to Bible school. I agree what CLI provided a Free training will help me to get my ordination papers and get a chance to pastor Churches in Canada and the world.
