Simple Truths in West Africa
In August, the Jula (Dioula) version of Simple Truths for the New Believer went into print. Jula is spoken by as many as 10 million people in West Africa in Burkina Faso, Mali, Ivory Coast, and other countries as far north as Senegal. 1000 copies were distributed in Burkina Faso. A few weeks ago, we received requests for a second printing and this feedback from users (written as received).
Pastor Ouedraogo Victor in Bobo Dioulasso : “Thank you Tom for the book. You make my baptism teaching easy for me. It’s very simple for the new Christians to understand.”
Pastor Samuel in Orodara: “Now I will not suffer again to follow up the new believers.”
Pastor Gedeon in Banfora : “This small book I would like every pastor of my denomination to get it . It will help us to take care easily the new believers.”
Pastor Soua Henock in Loropeni: “I start using the book when my friend Dieudonné gave me it. It very useful I am happy to have it. Thank you. May GOD reward you.”
Pastor Nouma : “Why don’t you translate this book in Mooré ? And even the other languages which have the Bible in their own languages ? It very, very helpful.”
