Uganda: Jesus Is The Truth School Scholarships
Anna Pedrosa had worked in all forms of media before God thrust her into the mission field. Though her education and experience were in the field of Communications, she also discovered a God-given gift for teaching children.
Her first experience with cross-cultural ministry and teaching began in 2008 when a door of opportunity opened to teach and be a housemom to teenage girls in Cambodia. She taught elementary computers, and High School ESL, while discipling nine young women in the Word of God.
In 2010, Anna moved to Uganda, with a great desire to be better equipped for her calling as a teacher. She completed her Masters degree in Theological Studies with a Christian Education emphasis at Westminster Theological Seminary in Entebbe, Uganda, graduating in December 2013.
While she was studying, she was also teaching children at a local church and at a community-based Christian school in Kampala.
By God’s wise providence, Jesus is the Truth Nursery and Primary school (JITT) ceased operations for a year from the end of 2012. The leadership of ACTION Gulu had been praying for someone with the specific gifts and calling suited for leadership in the school. God laid the school on Anna’s heart through her final project and paper, “A Proposal to Re-Open Jesus is the Truth Nursery and Primary School.”
Through consultations with ACTION Gulu leadership, people of the community and government education officials, JITT found its mission to be, “to glorify God by demonstrating His love to the vulnerable children of Gulu through excellent, Bible-saturated Christian education.”
Anna sees the ministry of the school as the outworking of God’s command to the church in the Matthew 28:18-20. The school is envisioned to be a venue for the discipleship of students, teachers and families in the Word of God. By God’s grace, it will aid in the raising up of a new generation of Acholi Christians who love God, obey Him, and follow His commands. Anna is serving as the head-teacher of Jesus is the Truth nursery and primary school in Gulu, Uganda.
