Bruce & Jan Rossington

“thank you for praying during Bruce’s recent trip to Tanzania. It went really well…Tanzanians and expatriates working with four different language groups engaged in a stimulating discussion about how to use mother tongue Scripture alongside the Swahili Bible. The need for people to have God’s Word in their heart language – even where their understanding of Swahili is reasonably good – was reinforced. One Tanzanian commented: ‘When I hear in my language that Jesus walked, that he went here and there…we know who Jesus is. It makes us realize that the Bible is about things that happened here on earth. It is not just stories.’ On the last day of the workshop, the language groups started to put together an action plan for overcoming specific barriers to people engaging with Scripture in their community.”
