Last week, in a village in Mozambique, the Lolo people finally heard the last of the evangelistic Bible lessons that began at Creation and ended with eternity future.
This was an outreach where two men from the original teaching assisted in teaching another group in a neighboring area.
About ten men have been attending regularly, and missionaries are thankful for the understanding of the men who are studying. Most of the men have been attending churches for years but this is the first time that they have heard that salvation is trusting in Christ and not keeping the Law.
The missionaries wrote, “Praise the Lord for the understanding that they are having of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. The men have been moved especially by the stories of the Pharisee and the tax collector, and the thief that trusted in Christ as he died on the cross next to Jesus. What a testimony of God’s grace that Christ saved the thief for believing in Him, not by anything he had done.”
After the lessons are taught, the missionaries will spend time talking to each of the attendees. They want to make sure to clarify the lessons as needed so the men can fully understand the importance of the message.
They’re also sending off their first translated portions of the Bible to be checked over for accuracy and clarity. They’re hoping that this helps their future translation work as well by letting them see what they are doing right, and what they need to develop further.
Please pray that those who have finally heard the whole message will understand and accept it. Pray also that God will guide all involved in the translation process that the Lolo Scriptures might be accurate and easily understood by the hearers.
