The E-Reader Project

#GivingTuesday (November 28, 2017) provides the perfect opportunity for you to give to the E-Reader Project. When we help to provide theological education resources to our spiritual leaders in the central conferences, we are not just giving another handout; we are providing the greatly needed tools for our brothers and sisters to lead the church as God has called them. Please consider making your gift on November 28:

Got a minute? Take a look at footage recently taken at Banyam Theological School in Nigeria. E-Reader Trainers Julu Swen and Joe Ndzulo recently made a trip to this United Methodist school in Taraba State in northeastern Nigeria. More than 200 students currently attend the school, with around 100 E-Readers delivered so far. We look forward to returning to this school next year with more E-Readers!

Greetings from Nigeria.

I write to say thank you in a special way and the GBOD at large for introducing to us in Africa the E-reader.  The E-reader has been a huge blessing to me as a person and my ministry at large. 

The E-reader has boosted my reading culture, I can now read more than three hours a day, unlike in the past.  The books in the E-reader are very rich and wisely selected to help in ministry.  “The Nigerian Novel,” Things Fall Apart,” and Half of a Yellow Sun,” by both Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Adichie are books I was told to read in the days of my school, but I was not able to.  With the help of the E-reader, I was able to read them all, giving me a full knowledge of Igbo traditions and the Nigerian civil war, among others.

The E-reader can help a Nigerian pastor so much, especially those in the rural areas and those with a poor reading culture.  I also advice that books should have the inclusion of Hausa books for the benefit of those that cannot read English fluently.

Thank you, Robin, for taking your time to train us.  I wish you God’s blessings.

-Rev. Salama Hassan
