Paying Attention to the Gospel
David Fugoyo is earning a PhD in biblical studies, Old Testament, at AIU. Here he shares how his vision for South Sudan is made possible by his education.
I first heard about AIU (then NEGST) while in Khartoum, Sudan, in the mid 1990s. Knowing that my ministry was going to be in Africa, I chose to go to AIU for my graduate degree. It wasn’t until 2007 that I arrived at the school and began to study biblical studies. Since then, my education and experiences at AIU have steadily shaped me into who I am today, and they will continue to play a positive role in my life and ministry in Africa.
Fleeing Home: Finding Hope in the Gospel
My journey to Africa International University began with a desire to prevent suffering for people like Esther.* Esther fled her home in Liberia when civil war wracked the country. She sought refuge in neighboring Ivory Coast, only to flee again when that country experienced significant political unrest. Ghana provided Esther with temporary shelter in a refugee camp while she waited for “the powers that be” to determine her fate. She could not return home, so where would she go? Eventually, she was sent to the United States for permanent resettlement.
