  1. Congratulations! What a wonderful tribute to God’s unfailing love for Friends Theological College. We are thankful also for the leadership Dr. Robert Wafula is giving the staff and students at FTC. Our prayers are with all of you as you continue to be a strong and bright light for Christ on the hill in Kaimosi. God continues to bless FTC because of the faithfulness of His servants who have been called to the College to teach and work. Blessings to the Board and administration as well. Your integrity will live on in the lives of those you are leading into ministries.
