Church Planting—Plantando de Igreja
Our Bible College programme includes church planting subjects and because of a low level of literacy we have introduced mp3 players as a training aid. We have recently seen 8 churches planted by the 9 trainers. They are using the mp3 players to disciple believers in the new churches, as well as their own. This is very encouraging as they have taken hold of the need to disciple but continue to love to evanglise. What a winning combination.
We have seen our first cross cultural church plant, where Sena speakers have planted a church in a different language group. Using the Portuguese trade language they are able to disciple them effectively. Praise God for the mp3 players! One hiccup - would you believe I can't find an audio bible in African Portuguese. If you know where I can download one, please let me know as I would love to include it in our material.
The people love hearing the message in their own language. This month they are listening to the gospel of Matthew, as well as other teaching and preaching.
