Last week I took the Jesus Film to the students of the Women’s Development Center. The Jesus Film shares the gospel verbatim from the book of Luke. It is translated into the local Acholi language. The girls were spell bound all throughout the film. Seeing the story unfold on the screen is compelling and powerful.
I’m thanking God for his love and grace for these girls and for the donation that allowed the purchase of the equipment to take the gospel to the Acholi people in their own language in this powerful medium. We’ve only just begun!
Update: There are now seven churches in the Diocese of South Carolina who are partnering with the Women’s Development Center (WDC) to sell purses and tote bags made by the Production Unit of the Center to help it become self-sustaining. The Center provides a one year training course that gives the girls skills with which to support themselves and their families. For more information on the WDC, see my post called “Uganda Labor Day Musings”.
God is good…all the time…because that’s His nature!
