“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn” Benjamin Franklin.
This quote may not be as relevant to many but the Kisii people after the Bible Society of Kenya spread her wings to the County to tell, teach and involve them in Scripture engagement through the introduction of Audio Scriptures under the Faith Comes by Hearing programme.
Through the championing of Rev. James Mwangi, a life member of the Society many regions in the County have been reached and undoubtedly, the programme has been well received by the young and old in the County, where Ekegusii is the main local language spoken.
The joy and interest in the programme have brought people together to form listening groups. Amazing and encouraging testimonies from the people who have engaged and interacted with the audio Scriptures through these listening groups are trickling on our end. Through these group discussions in the Ekegusii language, individuals listen and learn from each other and gain new insights on the word of God. They are then able to apply the lessons learned in their lives.
Here are some of the life-changing testimonies as shared: –
“If you abide in me and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This verse encouraged me when I met a group of people listening to the audio and I joined. My daughter has been such a thorn in my life but after listening and praying with the group, I received a call that my daughter had visited the Church pastor and wanted to get born again! That was a miracle! I am glad the Lord led me to this group!” Peris
“I am so excited to have received a talking Bible in my heart language. It has helped me learn what love is and teach my grandchildren.” Grace Ombasa.
We endeavour to enrich people’s lives by availing Audio Scriptures including in controlled facilities like hospitals and prisons in the County. We are encouraged by the fact that the transformative Word of God is shedding light and bringing understanding to Kisii People in their heart language.
