Getting a $8 cup of coffee at the new Ndj Hilton (Had to try it once)

The last couple weeks I’ve been reading through old Chad branch member’s newsletters before I scan them to make digital copies for our branch history. I can’t begin to tell you how in awe I’ve been as I’ve read how God has worked in the different language projects and how the work that was started by former members is continuing through others by God’s grace. It is like Paul reminding the Corinthians that some plant, some water, and some harvest the seeds of the gospel planted among the unbelieving. It is God who receives all the glory.  I Cor. 3:6-9
Some snippets from them: 1994: “HD(name protected) is one of three men currently working on the first-draft of Luke translated into Kenga. He was born into a M family in Pajara, a Kenga village traditionally a stronghold of Islam. After becoming blind, a result of drinking tea poisoned by an enemy, he began to attend a school for the blind run by a mission in another town. There he learned to read French Braille…and there he came to know Jesus as his Lord and Savior. In 1974 he felt led to return to his village where he began to preach the gospel and a church was born. Seven years of persecution followed by those who opposed his faith in Jesus. In 1985 the Chad gov’t proclaimed freedom of religion. Today, there are more than 70 believers in the church in Pajara.”

Fast forward to 2016: Praise God that the whole NT was translated into Kenga through two of SIL members and MD and other Kenga speakers. In 2012 they received their NT in book and Faith Comes By Hearing did a dramatized recording a couple years later. Please continue to pray for literacy classes which are continuing in the Kenga villages.
