Pastor PraiseGod Kiwiti receives his certificate during the graduation
…receives best student award at graduation
HARARE - A grade six pupil at Belvedere Primary School has made history when he graduated on November 13, 2016 after completing a two year theology diploma programme with Africa Multi-nation for Christ College (AMFCC).
PraiseGod Kiwiti (11) said he was happy that he managed to respond to the calling of God without wasting time.
The young boy surprised other graduates when he received the best student award, beating his classmates who were old enough to be his parents.
AMFCC Evening School coordinator, Dr Charles Mbisa said Praisegod was the youngest graduate to ever make it through the college.
"He is the youngest graduate to pass through our hands. Just like the Biblical David who got called at a very tender age, Praisegod has done the same. We wish him all the best in carrying out the Lord's work," said Dr Mbisa.
Praisegod made it clear he was ready to go into the field and start to do the work of God.
"I am happy that I managed to respond to my calling, God started calling me when I was even younger than what I am today. I kept on telling my parents about how God was speaking to me through dreams until they encouraged me to enrol with AMFCC Evening School," said PraiseGod.
His father, Virimai Kiwiti, a pastor with United Family International Church (UFIC), said he was happy that his son had followed his footsteps.
"My wife and I are happy parents today. I cannot believe it. We have accompanied the young boy to his graduation and I also graduated here at AMFCC two years ago. The boy used to tell me his dreams and I realised that God was calling him.
"I then encouraged him to enrol with the same college that moulded me and look, here we are today witnessing the youngest graduate ever," said Kiwiti.
He said the young boy is intellectually gifted as he receives prizes each year at his school, and is expecting four units when he sits for his Zimsec Grade 7 examinations next year.
AMFCC is a Bible College that was founded by Archbishop Ezekiel Handinawangu Guti of ZAOGA Forward in Faith and it trains pastors from any church.news
