When Crazy Dreams Become Reality

Sibo attended Bible college under TEAM missionaries
Thanks to supporters like you, Sibo got to to pursue God's call on her life at Swaziland Evangelical Bible College.

Growing up in the southern African nation of eSwatini, Sibonginkhosi (Sibo) had two kinds of dreams. She had goals and aspirations for what she would do and become as she prepared to launch into her future. But the dreams she experienced during sleep were quite different. Sometimes she saw herself teaching God’s Word, or singing in a church, or praying for the sick. In other dreams, a spiritual mentor urged her, “Choose the calling!” And during her waking hours, Sibo kept hearing the same message from trusted friends and leaders.

Many southern Africans claim to be Christians but if you look closer, their faith is often mixed with traditional animistic religion. Others fall into churches that preach nothing but the prosperity gospel. As a result, spiritual deprivation and corruption run rampant. That’s why Bible colleges and institutes in Swaziland, South Africa and Lesotho are so vital — and why prayers for their success are so important. This month, will you pray with us for the success of healthy, true biblical teachings in…
