After a fourteen-year hiatus, the High School at Rhema Christian Academy opened its doors to students again on September 12. As of September 28, a total of 73 high school students had enrolled, and more were expected.
Between 2005 and 2008, when Aniefiok was using WEI materials to teach English and the Bible to RCA High School students, he was baptizing young people almost weekly. I said at that time, “This is the most exciting thing that is happening in WEI.”
Then Satan stuck his foot in the door, and the government closed the high school due to “inadequate facilities.” Even though the foundation had been poured and construction had begun on a new multi-purpose building, the Nigerian Ministry of Education would not bend its rules.
Now the mighty hand of God has re-opened the door for RCA High School. Aniefiok writes, “God has a way of doing his own things. A new Secretary has been appointed at the Ministry of Education. He happens to be a faithful brother and a member of a congregation I served from 1996 to 2001. With his influence, we are allowed to resume the high school programme with temporary facilities pending the completion of the auditorium. He advised us on how to set up a temporary library, science laboratory, and ICT Centre in one large room, and we are working on that. We will still need a final approval in three years for our students to take their final exams to graduate from high school. We trust God to help us meet the requirements when the time comes.”
