All thirty-seven evangelism students stared in wonder as Keith carried in his armload of material into the classroom. After setting them on a table in the front of the room, the entire class rose as one man and started scrambling ahead to grab their share of the precious goods.
“No, no!” Keith shouted. “There are plenty for all! Just go back to your seats and we will pass them out so each of you will get his share.”
Finally, a doubtful group of students returned to their seats. What was object of their clamor? What were they so afraid that they might lose out on? Bible studies in the Swahili and Lingala languages.
The long awaited container of Bible studies from Light Bearers Ministry has arrived. The journey was impressive––crossing the Pacific and Indian Oceans before traversing all of Kenya and Uganda by truck and finally reaching us here at Congo Frontline Missions in Kisangani, DRC.
Although there is a great shortage of Bibles in Congo––especially rural areas––these studies ask topical questions, then quote the full scriptural answers in fifteen lessons. The lessons are colorful and very attractive. Thus, for many people, a full set of these lessons will “become” their Bible. Knowing that God’s Word is the most powerful force in the universe, we expect these silent messengers to mount a serious invasion into Satan’s dark strongholds here.
Our church planters are already taking boxes of these “invasion forces” to the un-entered areas where they are working. Light Bearers Ministry also sent us French lessons, which will help us to reach the educated portion of the population.
A big thank you to Light Bearers Ministry for this huge contribution to the spreading of God’s word here in DRC. We also thank each of you for your prayers on behalf of these Bible studies. We trust the promises that assure us “so shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth, it shall not return unto me void” (Isaiah 55:11).
