Bible Society of Kenya camped in Loita Hills between 17th – 21st May 2021 to show the Jesus Film and Walking with Jesus film to the Maasai-speaking community in Narok South. A total of 586 people were reached with the good news and we thank God for the opportunity to spread the word to this community.
Adults and children watched the film with excitement. For some, it was the first time they heard God speaking the Maasai language in a film! It was fulfilling as we sowed seeds of peace, hope, joy, and love that can only be found in God’s Word.
120 Oltarakwai Primary School learners were among the team that watched the Jesus Film in the Kiswahili language. It is the only school around the Loita Hills area. Parents are dependent on teachers not only in educating their children but also in the teaching of the Word since they do not know a lot about Enkai-God. Rarely will these children go to Church since they herd when they are not in school.
Amidst their normal learning, Jesus Visited them with hope through the Jesus Film in the Kiswahili language. The excitement in the children was evident. They have never seen the “Cinema ya Yesu” as they call it. A mixture of hope, eagerness, expression of joy, and a kind of calmness could be seen on their faces as they watched this film.
Below are some testimonies as shared
“You have blessed these children today. They will live to remember this film! Thank you for remembering the forgotten!” Teacher Isaac.
“Many people will be transformed through this Film. They are in the dark hole but will get out through this word of God especially in their heart language.” Mr. Waithaka.
“With the Maasai Jesus Film and Bible downloads in my phone, I can easily share the Word of God through Bluetooth and Whatsapp. This is will be a great tool for evangelism! Am in awe of technology.” Pastor Elijah, Global Revival Church, Loita Hills, Narok South.
This successful mission was through the partnership of the Bible Society of Kenya with The World Concern and various Churches in the region. Indeed God’s word transforms communities!
