West Africa Theological Seminary is an institution with the vision and mission of training men and women for Holy living thereby catalyzing national spiritual awakening all over the world. Our students are our pride. WATS is constantly looking out for partners who will join in this vision of transforming the world. In the second edition of our Global Partners newsletter, we share the testimony of one of our scholarship beneficiaries, Usman Enejo and what he is doing to transform the world.
My WATS Story- Usman Enejo
I had a conversion experience in 1992 and got into full time ministry in 1996, but I knew something was missing and so I desired to have a ministry training. I sought for admission to Bible Missionary and Theological College (BMTC) Akwa-Ibom State, Nigeria in 1997. Even though I got admitted, my church could not sponsor me.
My parents being unbelievers never wanted to hear of my desire for Theological training. They insisted I had to go to a secular higher institution and so, I pleaded with them to allow me enroll in a College of Education with the aim of studying CRK/English Language, which would enable me have the knowledge of God’s word and function better as a pastor. The school offered me admission to study Agriculture instead due to my sciences background! I was not at peace and so I left the school after my first semester, with the counsel of a lecturer who at the same time was our chaplain. When my parents got to know that I left the school, I was considered useless and not worthy to be counted as part of the family.
The quality of education at WATS is quite high and I desired to take a Master’s degree in Intercultural Studies (MAIS) in WATS. After I gained the admission, scholarship did not seem to be forthcoming again, so I wrote the school and deferred my admission from 2018/2019 academic session to 2019/2020. In faith I began in August 2019, but after two modules it seemed I would not have the financial capacity to continue my studies. Then help came when through God’s miraculous intervention, WATS offered me scholarship, without which I would have dropped out of the post graduate program.
I appreciate the WATS community and all our donors for the great job the Lord is using them to do in His vineyard globally! Your labors are not in vain because scholarship donors make our dreams come alive and I strongly urge that we all continue to support the ministry of WATS.
Global Partners seek to help ensure that people like Enejo Usman who come to WATS, graduate and go forth to transform the world for Christ. We still have several students crying out for help. Would you not rather make a donation to our Scholarship Fund so we can do more! The cost of training a student per session is $1,200. One time or interval donations are most welcome and nothing is considered too small. You can strengthen our arms by making a donation NOW!
