Meet Martha Ernest Ambarang’u
Martha Ernest Ambarang’u, who is ordained in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania, is a new ThM/PhD student at LSTC—biblical studies, New Testament.
Before coming to LSTC she was a pastor of Hosiana Parish Buswelu in Mwanza, Tanzania. “I miss them, they are like family to me,” she said.
She learned about LSTC from the International Leaders Program scholars. “My sisters in Christ Adama [Raymond] and Veronica [Mwakasungura] were the first students I contacted to ask for more information about LSTC, and from their stories I realized that this is where I needed to be.”
“I felt like LSTC has the spirit of community! And I am happy to be in this community!”
Her best experience so far has been how fast she has gotten to know people and get connected.
“Sometimes I walk around and I hear a person calling my name and sometimes I don’t recognize them, I don’t see their full face but I know they are smiling inside their mask and I smile.”
