Pastor Julian Gibb interviews Amanda Forbes, Co-Founder of Trinity Education who shares amazing stories about mentoring young adults to become disciple makers in communities around the world. Amanda states, “Education changes our mindset about why we’re on this earth and our really human potential to create and come out of poverty. We had a student in Kenya, and before going through our program, he didn’t realize that he was made in the image of God, and he thought poverty was a multi-generational curse that he would pass along to his children.” Amanda says, “Going through our course, he did come to understand, ‘I’m made in the image of God. Poverty is not a curse on me or the generations to come.'” Amanda tells another story, “Our first program was in an impoverished area outside of Nairobi, where there was a lot of addiction and poverty; we had a small cohort of all young men in the program that seemed trapped by lack of opportunities. One man had a dream of studying computer science; he didn’t have the money for fees.” Amanda explains how this program started in the area, “and a software programmer in CA took him under his wings in mentorship, and he was able to get a job with a company in IT in Nairobi; it transformed his life from the difficult situation he was in! He got married, and ended up mentoring a small group of students… a full circle, blessed to be a blessing.”
