After an exhausting but fulfilling final day checking aspects of Genesis with a group of older people, we began the journey along the very rough road back to Kondoa. As I drove along, a man waved to me to stop the car. He wanted to buy our Rangi 2011 calendar! After one or two more kilometres, another man stopped us; he wanted the calendar too!
We drove a little further and saw an older man running from his house to the roadside. Older people do not run in Rangi culture, so I began to think he needed help with a real emergency, but no; he wanted to buy the Rangi calendar, Mark’s gospel and also our cassette recording of the Easter stories from Mark’s gospel. He was delighted with his purchases and began listening immediately. His delight is evident on his face in the photograph.
Pray that more and more Rangi people will have both the desire and the opportunity to read God’s Word in their own language.
