The meeting intended to reward good performance and encourage those who are trailing behind was attended by all CCP ministry coordinators and the directors. A devotion from story of David and Goliath in 1Samuel 17shared by CCP’s Communication Coordinator, Harriet Mwari encouraging the students and parents with emphasis that winning is a state of the mind and the conviction of the heart. ‘We apply ourselves to any task with a strength equivalent to the amount of conviction in our hearts that we will be successful in it. There were no doubts in David’s mind that he would slay the giant with the help of the Lord’ she said. CCP’s sponsorship coordinator Betty Opati encouraged the students to focus on education during this season that God has given them through the privilege of sponsorship.
