African Servants…willingly!

04 Mar
Pastors and farmers learn side by side.

Pastors and farmers learn side by side.

“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave..” Matthew 20:26-27

Ken started his training in Bible Translation software. Some of the participants are taking this class for the first time. A few previously took this class and are learning how to teach the class. Training of trainers is the goal.

There is a large mix of people. What has struck me is how they have all humbled themselves to learn this new material.

We have young men who do farming in between Bible Translation. There are trained pastors. There are men who have worked as Civil Servants for many years. Some have had top jobs in the government.

Yet all are sitting behind their computers, learning how to open, close, minimize windows, and start the task of learning a very complicated piece of software.

How often would I put myself in the same situation just so that I could serve God in a new way?

Humble servants. All for the sake of Bible Translation.

Prayer items:

Ken is in day two of teaching. Pray for clear understanding. He usually teaches, has them review a video and then tests each one of them. Rewards come with the class saying, “Well done” and Starbursts and lollipops are handed out to keep things light!

Anne will be taking a village visit tomorrow. Please pray for safe travels as we’ll be out and on the road for 12 hours.
