"...with your blood, you purchased for God, persons from every tribe and language - Rev. 5:9 NIV
Last week, we spoke or met with over 200 pastors and congregants representing several tribes and languages who received a Bible this year. Most had never owned a personal Bible because the price is a month's income or more.
VOICES RECEIVING A BIBLE EARLIER THIS YEAR
- Okware Robert, 39 years old, was born blind and is married with six children. He received his first Bible in February in his language, Lugandan. His sixth grade daughter reads to him what the pastor has said in church and now, "I will mature in the knowledge of Jesus and serve Him."
"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Ephesians 2:10 NIV
Do you see yourself as God sees you?
God created you to be His image-bearer. Our work is a reflection of who God is. When you see yourself as God sees you, you can best steward what God has placed before you. What does that look like in your daily work?
Poverty can focus work to one main goal...food for today
In Africa, many have heard and responded to the Gospel message. But, for the poor, pressing life issues can make it hard to focus on living out the Gospel.
