Dear Friend of ICM/ATS Kenya: One of the greatest joys in my work is teaching at our seminary, ATS in Kitale.

The students are some of the most appreciative and attentive you will ever experience. If you have an MA you can teach in the BA and if you have a BA you can teach in the Diploma. Classes normally lasts 8-11 days and you will need about 2 weeks door to door. ATS also offers accelerated programs for pastors who are also teachers during the Kenya schools term breaks (April, August and December). In these, the length is 6 to 8 days. The teaching day is extended into the afternoon to make this possible. Both experiences are as rewarding. Please look over the schedule for the BA and if you are interested in teaching a course email us back and we will check availability as some courses will fill soon. If you are interested in the diploma level get back to me. List your first three choices if possible. If you have a serious interest, it would be good if you would attach a copy of your Curriculum Vitae and scanned copy of your highest degree. You will need to raise funds for your air ticket (usually between $1400 $1900 check your agent or with Brian Aho who does travel for us 800417-9138), in country travel (anywhere from $50 - $300 depending on level of comfort desired), $50 for a Kenya visa, and pocket money and meals off the campus. When you are at the campus you will have room and board provided. We will pick you up at the airport and a missionary guest house runs about $50 a night. Most teachers use the books we have for the courses we teach. We loan one copy to the students during the course. Some teachers have favorite books they want to bring and donate for the school. In that case you would need 15-25 copies. That is appreciated but you will need to sort out book approval with Alfred Rutto (Gimnyigei@gmail.com) first. We have a basic syllabus for each course but again Alfred can advise you if you have suggestions for changes. All teaching questions go to Alfred and cc me. I would be happy to answer general questions. When a date is set Alfred will email you some forms (some just information but some to return). Be sure and make sure each email you send goes to me and Alfred both. If you have the time we would suggest a visit to the best game park in the world, the Masai Mara. My wife Deb can make all those bookings for you. Questions? Looking forward to seeing you on this side Blessings, Greg Snell
