First Time!

Post by JMG » Wed Aug 14, 2019 10:39 pm

The Kaje people begin today to hear the Bible taught in their own language for the fist time. Many hard working years in the making, learning language, creating an orthography, teaching literacy, translating the Bible, writing lessons, etc and today it all comes to a head. Some our friends started today to teach through the Bible, Creation to Christ, to the Kaje people. This will go on for a 2-3 months until they reach the story of the Resurrection. Prayer for the missionaries and the Kaje people as often as you think of it. Exciting times here.

Prayed. That is literally Good News!

JMG, I read your post out loud to my kids last night. I was choking up as I read it realizing that this would be the first time the tribe have heard God's word in their own language.
