One of the renowned preachers and evangelists, Paul Washer once said, “Missions is not about sending missionaries, and missions is not about doing missions. Missions is about the communication of truth to men.”
From 21st to 28th July 2021, the Bible Society of Kenya through the Faith Comes By Hearing programme camped in the land of the Rendille people group in Marsabit County to communicate the Truth through the Rendille Jesus Film and the Audio Recording of the Bible.
The Rendille people are about 101,000 according to the Joshua Project. They have a traditional religion that includes a prayer to the moon, animal sacrifices, and the existence of ancestral spirits. The name of God is Wakh in their language. While the Rendille people are listed among the least-reached people groups of Kenya, they seem to be very responsive to the gospel.
One of the ways the Gospel was clearly presented to them was through the Jesus Film in their heart language. The film was shown late nights in the villages of Kurkum and Kargi across the different manyattas in the land. 589 people were reached with Jesus Film and 71 confessing Christ.
Individuals were also reached out to with the audio Bibles in Swahili language. Most of the recipients were individuals who have never been to school thus they do not know how to read and write but can listen and experience God through audio messages. Others have been using the audio Bibles given them in past years and they shared the joy of spreading Christ’s Fragrance as they visited their friends.
We thank God for such sold-out hearts! And we pray that these men of peace who God has strategically placed in this land will be agents of hope with the message of Truth!
