There are currently 30 listening groups gathering on at least a weekly basis listening to our Bible story sets combod with Audio Bibles in the Chichewa language.
During the course of 2017 we would like to undertake a followup trip to this area, specifically around Nkhoma, to inspect the AudiBibles used by about 30 study groups, repair or replace faulty players and/or damaged picture materials. Also to sit with the listeners and measure the impact of these materials in these villages.
Although the Chichewa language is not a GRN Priority one language as such, something hinders the Chewa to mature spiritually and grow into independent, indigenous believing communities duplicating themselves.
Also, Chichewa is the trade language in Malawi to a large extent, so people from most other language groups also speak Chichewa, so it is important to equip the Chewa to share the Message of the Bible with others.
Feedback shows us that our pictorial story sets bring the Gospel closer to their hearts and seem to bring people to a better understanding of the Gospel Message. We believe this has something to do with our audiovisual story sets helping people to engagement with Scripture more effectively.
Estimated costs: R15,000.00
