Several months ago we were approached by a group of pastors who were wanting to use the chronological Bible lessons that we have developed in the local language, Bisaya. We talked about the logistics of the training that we are offering and we suggested keeping the group under 30. When we showed up for the first of twelve training sessions, there were about 150 people.
We are encouraged that there is such a hunger for Bible materials in the local language, but we are also overwhelmed in planning for a group this big. The training is being held in a city about 3 hours away from where we are living. We do a training session every Thursday night for 3 hours with no breaks. This is a picture of the 3rd of 12 sessions and the numbers are staying steady at 150. Please pray for those of us teaching and also for those hearing the story of the Bible being presented as one big story from Genesis to Revelation.
