On Friday, November 24, 2017 there was a festive conclusion of the school year in Yei, South Sudan. 149 Students from the Emmanuel Christian College (ECC) graduated from the faculties of Theology, Education and Business. The governor of the state was present as guest of honor at the ceremony as was the board chairman George Bezuidenhout. In his speech, the chariman called for people to work more towards peace. 

Under the difficult circumstances, the ECC succeeded in adhering to its vision: to train people to become skilled leaders, rooted in the Word of God. Despite the struggle between the tribes, the ECC provided a platform for students from 14 tribes to study together, living as brothers and sisters, children of God. 

We are grateful to God, and appreciate all ECC staff, department heads, the academic board and the management team. And also all supporters who helped with prayer and finances. 

Due to the civil war, the ECC's own facilities in Goli could not be used. However, the organization Reconcile made its facilities available. This allowed the training to continue despite the unfortunate loss of the campus facility. 

At the festive meeting, the director of the ECC, Daniel Ohide said these words: "Above all, our deepest thanks go to God, for without God and His blessings and grace, I do not know where we would be, God bless you! God bless ECC! God bless Yei River State! God bless South Sudan!"
