For years, IMB missionaries and national partners in West Africa have been using orality strategies to share the Gospel and make disciples in the region. An important part of the methodology is crafting and sharing biblical stories with people who prefer oral communication methods.
IMB worker Katee Sheppard* has seen firsthand the impact that Bible stories in Africans’ heart languages can have, saying “They ask questions and God opens doors that lead many to Christ.” Now African orality trainers are traveling the continent and leading orality workshops that are equipping believers from the region in how to share the Gospel verbally.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM (CP) is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support of both CP and THE LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS OFFERING allows the Gospel to be spread across the world in many different forms so that all peoples have the opportunity to hear about Jesus.
PRAY for the continued work of IMB workers using orality strategies to share the Gospel, as well as local believers being trained to put into practice the orality skills they have acquired as they return to their towns and villages.
