The first guardians training with an evangelistic message on "Wisdom" from Proverbs 4:5-7, was held on February 4th, 2023 at Maranatha Faith Assemblies, Kawangware. A total of 183 guardians out of the expected 217. The guest speaker, Pastor Samson Muloma of Kawangware PAG Church urged guardians to hold on to wisdom for it was life and letting go would end up in making poor decisions. He told guardians to reserve education and it would protect them, to always remember what they had learnt and guard it well. He also reminded the guardians that wisdom and knowledge came at a cost and they needed to bear the cost especially so in gaining knowledge. Bearing the costs involved three stakeholders; the student (one who wanted education), the parent and the teacher. He pleaded with the guardians to bear the cost of supporting their students gain knowledge from their studies stating that "knowledge is bought while wisdom is given from God". Pastor Muloma reminded guardians that education was the best gift a guardian could ever give a child and investing in education today would bring a harvest in the future. He said that education opens great doors in life and lack of it ended in destruction. To reject education (knowledge) as guardians meant rejecting God's intention for their children which would ultimately lead to God ignoring their children (Hosea 4:6). To students present in the meeting, he urged them to take care of their education and honor their parents. Pastor Muloma quoted the word of Nelson Mandela reminding the students that "Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine..." The pastor then concluded his message with prayer for both the guardians and the students. At the training, CCP staff and guardians celebrated 22 eighth students who had graduated from a one-year program dubbed Rites of Passage Experiences (ROPES). The students and one guardian gave testimonies of the camp experience and lessons learnt and were also awarded with certificates. The staff also awarded eight students who scored 300 marks and above out of the total 500. The first student Bedel Baraka scoring 380 marks, followed by Comfort Joyce with 360 marks and Victor Njoroge 356 marks. Pastor Muloma also prayed for the students as they prepared to join various high schools in the coming weeks. The staff and the guardians also celebrated and prayed for blessings over 13 students who recently completed their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) transitioning to college in September. The team awarded four students who will be joining college led by Timon Batti with A-, Tony Ouma with B-, John Bradely with a B- and Emmanuel Ogesa with a C+. CCP also celebrated our first time A - score from Timon Batti who studied in Nairobi School as well as his guardian for the important role she had played in the young man's success.
