A Passion for the Word
In the first three months of having the Bible in his own language, Molesse read Genesis, Ruth, 1 and 2 Samuel, Daniel, Jonah, Malachi and the whole New Testament. And since at this point the Bible in Lolo consists of the New Testament and selected portions of the Old Testament, that was the whole thing. In three months.
It Speaks to His Heart
It’s not like Molesse never had access to a Bible before. He had a Bible in Chichewa, one of the more prominent languages in his part of Mozambique, but he never had much interest in reading it. He explained, “When you read and you understand and find exciting things, you keep reading. Before we had the Bible in our language, we would read just a little bit and then put the Bible away because we did not understand very well what we were reading.”
And that’s the whole point of heart language ministries. Using the language of the Lolo people opens doors to their hearts.
Partner in Heart Language Ministry
As the end of the year approaches, we’d like to give you an opportunity to underwrite heart language ministries around the world with a special gift to Ethnos NZ.
Your gift will fund the backbone of services that are necessary for missionaries around the world to focus on the complex task of establishing a thriving church, involving many difficult processes that require their concentration, such as:
Learning the language
Understanding the culture
Developing an alphabet
Translating the Bible
Teaching clear Bible lessons
Identifying and mentoring leaders and teachers
How can they do all those things? By trusting God, of course, with the backing of partners like you.
