During this trip we started a Bible study for the widows at Maisha. This Bible study was led by Mama Helen (one of our team members). Helen spent over three hours a day sharing the Word of God to the women and teaching them how to be open with each other. We were also able to buy 42 Bibles in Luo, which is their native tongue, which will allow them to study the precious words of our Savior! The class had an average of 40+ women a day and they were all hungry to hear the hope that Jesus offers!
One of the most beautiful things that this Bible study produced is the willingness of the women to now start their own Bible study. They were very hungry to hear the words of encouragement; and when the Bibles were passed out, the women almost created a riot as the scrambled to get a copy. It was a very emotional scene to witness. It was evident that the Word of God was a vital necessity in their lives.
May we each have a desire and hunger for God’s Word like the women at Maisha.
