A STUDENT IS NOT ABOVE HIS TEACHER
A student is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. It is enough for the student to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If the head of the house has been called Beelzebub, how much more the member of his household!”
I prepared the diplomas and first aid boxes for the graduates of the village health worker program.
One of the students was an elderly woman who couldn’t read or write. So she didn’t do the homework assignments and couldn’t complete the course. This woman was the only one who attended every class for the two years.
I started hearing testimonies of how she had taken care of the sick using the knowledge she’d learned from the classes.
I could not give her a diploma to sell medicines because almost all the pills were white and resembled each other. Without being able to read, she wouldn’t know the difference. But I wanted her to be a village health worker.
The more I prayed and thought about it, the more ideas came to me. I made labels with pictures of the sickness instead of words.
She was surprised when I awarded her the diploma and first aid box. She jumped and clapped and praised God.
The student became like her teacher. An effective health care worker.
