More Than Rice

Happy kids pose on a small rice farm in Uganda. While western media often focuses on this nation’s struggles, Ugandans are persevering, gentle and strong in faith. Over 82% of Ugandans call themselves Christian. Although many Ugandans have access to the Scriptures in the national language, that doesn’t enable the same level of understanding as a heart language. For example, after attending a basic Bible teaching seminar, Mr. Zaverio, 97, said, “I was not expecting to witness the Word of God being read in Bwisi while I was still alive. This week I have learned the true meaning of salvation, and I have accepted Jesus as my Savior. I will die in the Lord. They used to tell us that a true Christian is the one who attends church all the time, gives gifts, does good works and prays every evening. But now through these teachings in my language of Bwisi, I am understanding that God forgives our sins through Christ!”
This is what ScriptureEarth.org is all about. Helping individuals who want to know God, learn the true meaning of salvation, in their heart language, through His Word.
It’s just a couple of weeks till Oct 1. That is our faith goal for having our Wycliffe ministry budget fully met. We are so grateful to God for all of his faithful sons and daughters who have come alongside us in this ministry. If you are still praying about joining our finance team, the un-Xed colored tiles represent the amount of shortfall in our monthly Wycliffe ministry budget. Pick one or a part of one or more than one. Please keep praying. Click here to partner.

P.S. Bwisi language resources are found on Scriptureearth.org but under another name, Lubwisi.
