I forgot to mention in my Sunday School post that the second early morning Bible study had three new people come and only two from the previous week that didn’t come back. So in total there was 10 people for the study, which we think is awesome. At the first meeting Christian asked how many people had Bibles and there were only a couple so he told the rest that we would buy Bibles. He told them we had one already in their Lusoga language, but found out that even though they speak Lusoga mostly here in the village, they are not taught to read and write it. The more widespread dialect is Luganda and along with English that is what they are taught in schools. We found that to be strange, not to know how to read and write the language they speak but we want them to be able to read the Bible so we bought ten Luganda Bibles and nine were given out last Sunday. One decided he wanted the Lusoga Bible because he knows how to read Lusoga. There isn’t a lot of difference between Luganda and Lusoga, from what I understand Lusoga is more of a slang version of Luganda. So anyway, we are so excited to see what God is doing, especially the fact that the majority of the ten were men. We don’t have that many men in the regular service so it is very encouraging! They are all muslims and it is encouraging to know they are curious and want to know more about our God. Please be in prayer for them and for Christian on Sunday mornings, but also for the week, that they will hear the words and think about them and study their new Bibles.
Below is a gospel tract in Luganda, the Gospel of John, created by Grace Family Bible Church. I would like to print these to give out to people that I come in contact with so be in prayer that I am able to do this.
