The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Proverbs 9:10 (NIV)
PEER Servants has the privilege of sponsoring the PEER Teens Scholars program. Over 40 promising servant leaders among the PEER Teens in Africa have been able to attend university or a like tertiary institution through this program, thanks to Sponsors which PEER Servants recruits. These Scholars are super impressive, pursuing careers in healthcare, law, IT, engineering, education, business, and much more. Through this program, Scholars are gaining knowledge that will shape their careers.
What’s most impressive about these Scholars is not necessarily their knowledge or intelligence, but their passion for the kingdom. They want to become healthcare professionals because so few people in their countries have access to quality healthcare. They are pursuing careers in law to allow many more people to have access to justice. These Scholars have a very healthy fear of the Lord, and that “fear” is shaping them to become promising agents for the kingdom.
