Dr. Katho Bungishabaku Interview

Many of our partner schools are situated in places where violence is a daily challenge. It is a miracle that our books reach these locations, and that these schools continue to prepare students for leadership and service in church and society—offering wisdom and hope among populations torn apart by hatred and fear. Recently, we had the privilege to host Dr. Katho Bungishabaku, president of Shalom University, a partner school, located in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

During his visit, Katho shared with us their story of how Shalom University became a “place of peace” during a period of conflict and war. You can view their story by clicking on the video.

We ask for your prayers that our books will witness to God’s indestructible love, and offer transformative insights to students and clergy who engage in ministries of peace and reconciliation.

Thank you to our Intern Mercy!

My name is Mercy Anguah, I am from Ghana, and a recent graduate of Calvin College. Where I studied Economics and French. For twelve weeks during the spring semester, I worked at the Theological Book Network as the International Networking Intern.

My main responsibilities were the collection and organization of data on prospective partner institutions in the Majority World, as well as building networks and strengthening communication with partner schools. I also had the opportunity to learn about nonprofit fundraising. Throughout my internship, I experienced a warm, inclusive working environment, where I learned a great deal about the importance of effective communication and how nonprofit organizations function.

One of my major observations was the passion of the staff for the mission of the organization. This passion, coupled with hard work and the desire to truly make a positive difference, is what it takes to become a highly effective organization. I believe this will serve as a valuable guiding principle that I will carry with me as I enter into the field of nonprofit work myself.
