Brian Kamwendo '09
Greetings from Malawi, Central Africa. I am writing this letter to encourage you by means of what the Lord has been doing here in Malawi since I left PRTS in June 2009…
Allow me to thank you so much for your faithfulness in equipping men from around the world for Reformed, confessional, and experiential gospel ministry—including from small African countries like mine. I can still scarcely believe the wonderful opportunity I had to study on a full scholarship at PRTS. My life has been transformed since attending.
Before I attended PRTS, I did not have a comprehensive knowledge of what Reformed theology was all about, even though I came from a Reformed background. Today, I am able to propagate the doctrines of grace in various churches beyond lecturing at the seminary. Moreover, through the generosity of PRTS, I am even able as an alumnus of the seminary to remain linked to the seminary, its professors, and my fellow alumni. I receive support in terms of books, encouragement, prayers, and updates.
"Before I attended PRTS, I did not have a comprehensive knowledge of what Reformed theology was all about, even though I came from a Reformed background."
Due in large part to my training at PRTS, I have become a lecturer at our synodical seminary ( Josophat Mwale Theological Institute) in Malawi. Since 2009, I have also been serving as the Synodical Senior Clerk of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (C.C.A.P.), which has a membership of nearly two million people.
My prayer is that PRTS would be able to increase the number of students enrolled and have even more influence in spreading the Reformed faith throughout the world. I also pray that the Lord would bless PRTS’s expansion program to accommodate more classrooms and offices and library space, as well as to expand its influence through offering a reputable PhD program to train seminary leaders around the world.
